Explora offered outstanding service from the time I arrived to Eastern Island to the time I left. I signed up for some of the half day tour options that gave me a very good idea of the many sites in the island. I enjoyed the food a lot; a great introduction to Chilean flavors paired with pretty good wines. The hotel blends in with surronding nature and provides a luxury that is dear to me: comfortable, green, and not kitschy.
