Located south of Chile’s more popular tourist destinations, Puerto San Antonio is easy for non-Chilean tourists to miss. In the summer, vacationers from Santiago arrive, and this gritty port town becomes more dangerous. Even so, the City of San Antonio is working hard to help tourists, and the tourism office near the Plaza de Armas has excellent information about what do see and do in Puerto San Antonio.
Puerto San Antonio has many good restaurants by the harbor that serve fresh seafood. Several fine dining establishments are located on hillsides, offering wonderful views of the port and harbor.
