Southern Chile agent


My husband and I were in the southern part of Chile in January ’05 and found the best tour operator we’ve encountered in our years of travel. He is Enrique Pavez of Lagos Andinos (Antonio Varas 445, Puerto Montt, Chile; phone/fax 56-65 254988 or mobile [9] 7079445, e-mail sales@lagosandinos.cl or visit www.lagosandinos.cl).

Enrique speaks excellent English, and the word “can’t” is not in his vocabulary. In a 5-day period, we requested and got a tour of Petrohué Falls and the Chilean countryside ($60 per person), including Puerto Montt, Petrohué Falls, Lake Llanquihue, Puerto Varas and Frutillar (not to be missed); a 2-day tour of Chiloé ($180 per person), and a day of guaranteed fish by fly-fishing ($250 — can have two people, but my husband went by himself). Enrique provided extra clothing for the fishing as well as a lesson, and the fish-catching guarantee was fulfilled.

On our return from Chile, he guaranteed that we would make it in time to catch the bus for Santiago or he would have someone drive us there. His driver had to drive us to the next town because we were slightly late getting back.
