Hostal El Puesto is located in Puerto Rio Tranquilo, a small town on the shores of Lake General Carrera. Historically, on their way to their destination in Patagonia, travelers or farmers with their livestock would stop at the puestos (posts), which were small buildings made of wood, stone, or mud.

The hotel is simple and rustic, as all fixtures have been built using local noble materials and employing traditional techniques used since the times of colonization. The rooms and communal areas convey a sense of warmth and coziness thanks to the use of different woods from the area, bales of pasture, mud, sheep’s wool, and stone.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
