Chiloé Travel Guide

When to Go

When best to visit Chiloé? In one word, summer. The islands usually get only 60 days of sunshine a year, mostly during the summer months of December to March. Some parts of Chiloé, much like the Pacific Northwest and Ireland, receive more than 150 inches of rain annually, and most of that falls between April and November. You should be prepared for rain any time of year, though. The high-season crowds are not overwhelming, and they make the island look festive. Off-season Chiloé is beguilingly forlorn. Though admittedly not for everyone, the mist and fog that prevail here deepen the mystery of the island, while the crisp, breezy air is refreshing.
