Dalcahue Things to Do
The bay is actually a canal that divides the Isla Grande (big island), where Dalcahue is, from the Quinchao Island, where you'll find Achao, Quinchao and Curaco de Velez. You'll have good views of fishermen coming from the sea, and nice pictures, like this one in particular.
The Dalcahue cracft market is next to the pier, and has some interesting silver craft and the usual chilote wool clothes. By the picture you can notice that wool sweaters are a must, and much better if they've got bright colors. They're around $10.000 pesos (less than US$20)
Although it's not as magnificent as the Castro or Achao churches, the church of Dalcahue still has some of that old chilote style that makes it different.Related to:
