Fodor's Review

Fundación Quintay, a former whaling station that operated from 1943 to 1967, has been converted into a quaint museum that gives you a window into this coastal town's past. The museum, along with the skeletal remains of a whale, are just a stone's throw away from the handful of brightly colored fishing boats at the wharf.
