Castro, Chiloé Island, north Patagonia, Chile

The Isla Grande of Chiloé (pronounced chee-loh-WAY) is South America’s largest island and among its most striking cultural anomalies, you will experience on a South America cruise. Divided by the gentle peaks of the Coastal Range, Chiloé’s eastern and western coasts are two worlds apart. To the west is a wilderness of endless beaches, dune habitat, and temperate rainforests, much of it protected in one of Chile’s most forgotten national parks. To the east are the scattered islands of the Chiloé archipelago, sheltered from Pacific storms, intensely cultivated, home to a traditional culture of subsistence farmers, fishermen, and craftsmen. Charles Darwin arrived in Chiloe on June 28, 1834 and was based there for six months, writing about his impressions of southern Chile in his diaries.
