    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Named as the tribe of aboriginals that ruled the central patagonia along thousands of years, and located inside of the hotel with the same name too, this restaurante is warm, and offer us international foods and the typical patagonic-andean meals, with the full meaning of the expression. Not expensive, good attention. I like it.

    Favorite Dish: Deer stuffed with fines herbes, supported by a thick San felipe red wine, merlot, if it is possible.
    Trout at dark butter style, with a smooth chardonnay of the Angelica Zapata cave, but take care on that, perhaps the bottle of this wine will be more expensive than the whole meals for two... (;-I

Esquel Tourist Traps

  • by gaviotaportenia Written Feb 18, 2005

    Los paisajes son HERMOSOS, pero la lancha que transporta pasajeros desde Puerto Limonao hasta Puerto Chucao es mala, terrible, horrible.
    Los asientos son miniatura, los espacios entre los asientos tambien y el pasillo para recorrerlo es menor a 50 cms, ya que las rodillas de los pasajeros lo achican terriblemente.
    No vayan, hasta que la empresa no decida hacer los cambios.
    Yo realice la excursion por la Agencia "Gales al Sur" y la operadora no recuerdo el nombre, pero prometo publicarlo.

    Unique Suggestions: Si ya compraste, realiza la excursion, pero elegi bien donde sentarte, ya que no te podras mover por 2 horas de tu asiento.

    Fun Alternatives: Quejense todos, hasta que cambien el servicio, ya que lamentablemente es monopolio (salvo que pagues mucho dinero mas, hay otras lanchas "exclusivas")
