GET­TING AROUND

The fastest way to reach the Selkirk look­out or the sum­mit of Cerro Cen­tinela is on horse­back. Sad­dle up with Guido Bal­bon­tín from Ca­bal­gatas Tierra Mág­ica, who can also take you through the en­chanted for­est at Pla­zo­leta El Yunque.

FOOD AND DRINK

Af­ter hik­ing the is­land’s many trails, sit down on brewer Clau­dio Mata­mala’s deck for a cold one from his Cerveza Archip­iélago. cervezaarchip­ielago.cl. Ni­cole Marré and Guillermo Martínez at Más a Tierra Eco-Lodge swap the clichéd Chilean folk­loric mu­sic, fried foods and white rice for oc­to­pus carpac­cio, am­ber­jack ce­viche and golden-crab stew, served to a sound-track of reg­gae, bossa nova or Span­ish pop. masatier­rae­colodge.com

HO­TELS

If you yearn to get away from it all while you’re away from it all, Cru­soe Is­land Lodge has ev­ery­thing you need to live like a pam­pered ma­rooned sailor – hot tub and sauna, pisco sours, scuba gear, freshly cooked lob­ster and golden crab, a li­brary with a fire­place – on a shel­tered bay out­side of town. cru­soeis­land­lodge.com
