The theme of this hotel is to blend in with the environment as much as possible with the outside made from mud blocks which make the hotel look like part of the landscape. It overlooks the lovely Ultima Esperanza Sound ( Last Hope Sound). The service is excellent and the hotel boasts a really great restaurant.

There were sixteen hotel guests on the boat including two young woman from New York who had tried the trip the previous afternoon and had to turn around due to weather conditions and they were really hoping that today we would get there.

... that was being prepared for sealing. Last time we would have had some 500 km of ripio. GG is looking a lot brighter this time. We found another nice hospedaje on Colon Street off San Martin (Hospedaje Marial). Later we walked out and saw Kaiken hostal, the place we stayed in 2009 (just around the corner). It may have been better as it had WiFi.

Especially in the middle of the unpopulated and desolate desert road of Ruta 40 - We picked up a couple hitchhikers!
One of them was brandishing ...
