When to go
Chiloé’s climate is as varied as its culture: even in the summer months, from December to March, expect rain, fog and 20-degree heat in the same day. The isle sings and dances in February with Festival Costumbrista Chilote in Castro.
PlanesFour times a week, the Chilean airline Latam runs a direct, two-hour flight from Santiago’s Comodoro Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport to Chiloé’s only airport, Mocopulli Airport in Castro. There are direct flights to Santiago from the US and Australia, but flights from Europe, Africa or Asia stop at least once enroute.
AutomobilesWith so many sites all over the isalnd, hiring a car in Castro will give you complete freedom to explore the island, but be warned, petrol stations are few and far between here and parking can be problematic in smaller towns.
