    You will work with the Museum Community , they are all turismus local workers .

    Picturesque Puerto Octay is one of the best-kept secrets in the region and one of the most charming towns in the Lake Llanquihue District. Situated on the north shore of the lake, it was once a major lakeside port. Today, time seems to stand still in this peaceful town full of German colonial style buildings, many of which operate as inns. They are the legacy of the immigrants who founded the town in the early 19th century.

    During easter and christmas, we help with the organization of Puerto Octay´s museum to host fairs where local craftsmen and producers sell their products as a way to promote the town and all thats being produced there. So we use all the help we can to help installing stands, keeping the garden, babysitting, entertaining, etc.
    This is our way of giving back to the community.
