Quellón is a small town at the southern end of Chiloé Island. It is a fishing and transportation hub for the area and not a particularly interesting tourist destination. Although you might want to experience the thrill of standing at the southern extreme of Chile's longest road, the ruta 5, which is marked with a plaque and mounument just outside of town at Punta de Lapas.
The ferry to Chaiten on the mainland is expensive but sometimes the only way to travel the carretera austral without the detour into Argentina. In winter sundays only, in summer more frequent. Fare is Ch$ 12000 pp, Ch$ 65000 for a car (not including passerngers, driver is Ch$ 6500).
The plaque marking the end of the chilean Panamerican Highway (ruta 5) is just outside of town at Punta de Lapas (also a relatively good beach for this far south). Take any bus on Ladrilleros that says Punta Lapas - 20 minutes and Ch$ 250.
Whale watching. There are a few local companies arranging whale tours. November to March. Ana Maria Jara Millo on the boat "Ana Villosa" call 82467340 or 94270380. Alternatively there is Ruben Riedel on boat "nachito" call 77138014 or 97881686.
Every day during the summer an authentic curanto takes place at the Turismo Millaguen near the end of the Panamerican Highway (Km 3, email firstname.lastname@example.org). Take any westbound bus on the main street that has "Punta de Lapas" as a destination - Millaguen is on the north side of the road down a steep driveway.
The curanto is at 1:30 (the excitement starts about 12:30 when the fire gets going - watching the construction of the curanto is as much fun as eating it). Seafood, chicken, sausage, pork, and fava beans are buried in a pit and cooked for half an hour. Lunch with wine costs abour Ch$ 4,500 (2/06).
