"A thoroughly great vacation package. When the boat trip was cancelled I mooched around Puerto Natales and had lunch there. Then I returned to the excellent Altiplanico Hotel and had a good read in the lounge with its fine wine, cheerful wood stove and panoramic view of the fjord. No problem. I had no phone calls so cannot comment on your "Our phone attention" box above. But I can recommend you for a well planned vacation package. Perhaps to recommend one or two restaurants in Punta Arenas and Puerto Natales, although I had all my evening meals in the Altiplanico's excellent restaurant. First class food."
