A central location but the lobby, bar and restaurant area do not really match the style of the rooms. The bar is chic and well designed with cool tables and a stone & hide decor. The rooms are fairly basic and the bathrooms jaded. The sushi was very good but the sharing platter was rather poor. Breakfast was cleared away with extreme promptness even though we were still eating.
Fine for one night but rather cold.

... Unfortunately, it was raining the whole time, so it wasn’t a very nice day for a walk. There was a big mall just about a mile away from the bus terminal so I went there to do some shopping. Since I’ll be heading to Antarctica in about a week, I need to pick up a few things before I get down there.
I was looking for some waterproof trousers, a hat, some thermals, stuff like that. I managed to find a fleece jacket ...
... In the past, the area had been essentially cleared of lumber by lumber companies. When the trees finally returned, a group of citizens decided to get together and build a hiking and skiing area. It now has a chair lift to the top of the mountain and a lodge. The area is called the Andean Club. Met our guide and bus at the port. Drove through town and started up a gravel road. About 3/4 of the way there the bus started having problems; it kept shutting off. We got off the bus ...
