Ancud

A city of 40,000 people, Ancud was the capital of Chiloe Archipelago until it was superseded by the city of Castro in 1982.
Step out of Ancud with an excursion to Isla Aucar in Quemchi--about 58 minutes away. There's much more to do: get outside with Pinguineras, enjoy the sea views from Faro Corona en Chiloe, identify plant and animal life at Chiloe Island Penguin Colony, and don't miss a visit to Plaza de Armas de Ancud.

To find photos, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, read our Ancud attractions planner.

Belfast, UK to Ancud is an approximately 30-hour combination of flight and car. You'll gain 4 hours traveling from Belfast to Ancud due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Belfast in December: high temperatures in Ancud hover around 20°C and lows are around 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Castro.

Main city on Chile's Chiloe Island, Castro represents one of the country's oldest inhabited settlements, making its fortune as both a tourist center and transportation hub.
Explore Castro's surroundings by going to Muelle de las Almas (in Cucao) and Cascadas de Tocoihue (in Dalcahue). Spend the 26th (Thu) exploring nature at Chiloe National Park. The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Costanera, head off the coast to Lemuy Island, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Feria Artesanal Dalcahue.

For reviews, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Castro vacation planner.

Drive from Ancud to Castro in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. In December in Castro, expect temperatures between 20°C during the day and 9°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
