Sleep between the treetops. This is how it feels when you stay at one of the most magical hotels in Chile, the one with the Huilo Huilo nature reserve, in the Los Ríos region. There you can choose between the Nawelpi Lodge, the Nothofagus, the Fungi Kingdom and the Magic Mountain (this was the first to be built). All are made with noble materials, such as wood and rock, and none have televisions. This, because they have the policy of disconnecting and approaching nature.
Note: in all you will find maximum comfort, including spa service, swimming pools and good restaurants.

They do not have television, so that the disconnection of the city is something real. Do not forget to try what comes out of your kitchen that, although it only serves breakfast at the moment, works with local products, such as the muña muña, the chañar, the carob tree and others.
