Simply amazing (wet and adventurous boat ride)

This sight definitely needs sun to bring out all it's shades of colors (water and rock). It's simply amazing. The boat ride is quite adventurous and prepare to get wet. There is a... read more

This sight definitely needs sun to bring out all it's shades of colors (water and rock). It's simply amazing. The boat ride is quite adventurous and prepare to get wet. There is a spot you can book a tour that is past the village (driving south) that apparently is not as bumpy as it's getting to the marble canvas from... More

It's one of the places in the world from a category "must seen". Don't pay a lot for agents in Puerto Rio Tranquillo, if you have a ranted car, or have selfmade trip. Just 5 kilometers by the road in direction of Chile Chico and you can rent a bark for a family, take part in join trip with other... More

It was such a nice experience - incredible. It's beautiful and I think every "company" does a good job.

the ride with the boat takes about 2 hours. all the boats are almost the same and do the same trip. be ready to get wet in the afternoon when there are waves in the open water.

I visited the Marble Caves and Cathedral in November 2016. Not easily reachable. I did it from Puerto Rio Tranquilo, which seems to be the closest village to the caves. I flew to Balmaceda airport, stayed for the night in Coyhaique (50 minutes by minivan from the airport, there are minivans waiting for passangers of each flight, I paid 5,000... More

This is a wonderful place, located in Lago General Carrera. It's worth to drive about four hours to get here, because of the beauty and peace that this place can give you.

Because the blue water reflects in the caves, this excursion is well worth it when it's clear weather. We paid 9000 peso's per person and were part of a 7 person group. You arrive at the caves after a 20 minute or so boat ride (no waves or anything) and you spend around 30-40 minutes at different caves. The boat... More

This was recommended to me as an alternative to the crowds and high costs of Capillas de Marmol. My tips to you: -Carve out at least one full day. The trips to and from the Capillas to major cities (i.e., Coihaique) are long and rocky. -Take advantage of the surrounding area (i.e., glacier hikes and other cavernas closeby). The tour... More
