There are several lodging options in and around the park, ranging from hotels and hostels, to cabins and campsites. If you want to combine a trip to the park with exploring nearby Malalcahuello, the Chilean-Australian couple that own Chile Wild (www.chilewild.com) have super comfortable cabins and excellent breakfasts (from US$ 115). In Melipeuco, the Los Pioneros Tourist Center (www.lospioneros.cl) offers cozy rooms and cabins (from US$ 60) along with amenities like a restaurant, pool, and fire-heated hot tub. A more affordable option (from US $24) can be found at Hospedaje y Camping Relmucura (www.relmucura.cl), which is run by a Mapuche family who prepare traditional Mapuche food for guests. Much of the local cuisine is centered around Mapuche cooking, utilizing foraged or caught ingredients such as mushrooms or fish. Relmocura offers traditional dishes, made with love by Luz Maria Huenipi and her family. Las Terrazas de Melipeuco (www.terrazasdemelipeuco.cl), a mainstay of the Melipeuco dining scene, has a delicious menu where you can find both Mapuche dishes and Chilean classics (try the capellones rellenas or the salmon a la plancha). And you can’t leave without trying some of Don Anibal’s tender gaucho barbecue at Agroturismo Los Riscos (email@example.com).
