Friendly receptionist,Natalia with good English.Overlooking the lake,it is a twenty minute walk into town,so not central,but the views are worth it being that little bit away.Breakfast and dinner served.Wi-Fi in rooms is not bad.

I had roasted chicken and fries. And I took some of the dinner rolls as part of my sustenance for the hike! We returned to We are Patagonia and met Angie and Andrew who just arrived. I finished packing my big backpack and had what could be the last time I sleep on a comfortable bed for the next few ...
... a shared platter of King Crab 3 ways, a gratin, a mousse and finally inside smoked salmon roll. Maria decided on locally inspired lamb shanks while David went with a South African inspired stuffed chicken breast smothered in a curried lentil sauce. Absolutely divine!!
We wandered through town to help walk off lunch and went past the fire station, which ironically had burnt down. We would have laughed but seeing a flag flying at half mast ...
