Welcome to the forums funky-ouma, I'm sure we can help you find what you are looking for.

It seems to be that there are some great museums that display the ceramics in Peru:

Here are a couple of pretty good blogs:

I'd look for all the markets you can find. You should be able to find plenty of handicrafts to check out.

There's an awesome market in Pisac. Also in Urambamba on Sunday's called Pablo Seminario and one in Iquitos I've been to called Barrio BelÚn. But you don't have to go to these places to find what you're looking for. I found lots of amazing crafts all over the country. Make sure to take a boo around the central parts of town for lots of neat shops and street markets.

Have fun!

You mention the boat trip from Puerto Montt. I presume it is the Navimag Ferry.

See what fellow Travelpodders have to say about this trip. It may not be a very good idea for someone who is unfit, or are you just kidding us?

The other trip out of Pto Montt is Skorpios, which is very comfortable indeed, and very costly.

I can't find any Travelpodders who have done Skorpios. It's probably too expensive for our poverty-stricken travellers. Nevertheless TripAdvisor has a few comments.
