The hub of the Aysén region in Patagonia, this is a city in contrast, with modernity mixing with a traditionally slower rhythm in the shadow of the Andes. Within minutes of departing Coyhaique you can be fly-fishing on the Simpson River or trekking and horseback-riding amid magnificent countryside scenery. The town itself is constantly improving its shopping and cultural offerings for tourists. Throughout the year there are regular cultural festivals of all kinds, outdoor sports competitions, and surprisingly lively night spots on weekends.
