    Description

    We are a couple that lives in the Sector of Villa Vanguardia, Northern Patagonia of Chile, to 106 km to the south of Chaiten. We are building a cafe and a camping area between the Frio and West rivers, the complete project consists of the reconstruction of trails used by the settlers and make them stroll for walks, horseback riding, mountain bike, besides using the 12 Kms of river That surround the field, developing Kayakismo and Rafting. I Luis is 65 years old and Lorena my partner is 51 years old. It is attractive since we are located in a sector of Native Forest with very little intervention of the people, remarkable and generous rivers for the sport fishing. It is a sector of passage in which thousands of tourists pass annually and at the moment there is nothing like support to the tourist. We guide our business to cyclists, backpackers, campers, our food provides services for the general public as well as food for vegetarians and vegans.

Yo Luis tengo 65 años y Lorena mi pareja 51 años. Es atractivo ya que estamos ubicados en un sector de Bosque Nativo con muy poca intervencion de las personas, rios notables y generosos para la pesca deportiva. Es un sector de paso en el que anualmente pasan miles de turistas y en este momento no existe nada como apoyo al turista. Orientamos nuestro negocio a ciclistas, mochileros, campistas, nuestra comida entrega servicios para publico general además de comida para vegetarianos y veganos.
