I’m not sure if you guys have seen anything about what is happening recently on our little island of Chiloe but it is crazy! I’m not entirely sure of the details but apparently tons and tons of rancid salmon were dumped into the ocean near Ancud (about 50 miles to the north of Castro). SomosChiloe‘s… Continue reading What’s Going On!?
This fishing trip was my favorite one in Chile so far. A while back, we headed out to the area of Rahue, which is southwest of Castro. It can be accessed by bus, but I’ve been told the schedule is not that regular. It is a few miles past Cucao and is close to a popular… Continue reading Ocean Fishing!

Me (confused, not sure if she… Continue reading Success through Failure: The Visa Run

Tourist visas in Chile are valid for 90 days, so we are heading out of the country and then back in to get another 3 month stamp. So we are taking a bus from Castro, Chiloe over the… Continue reading Visa-run Bus Tickets and Street Fruit!
