This park has well-maintained trails and good signage. Worth a visit. But unless you have a car and speak Spanish, you need to book through an agency. We had the luck to find BirdsChile, who sent us Carlo. What a terrific guide. He drove us on a wonderful birdwatching tour along the coast south of Puerto Varas and then hiking in Alerce Andino park. He knew the flora and fauna, geology and local native culture and satisfied our endless questions. He did not hurry us when we wanted to examine closely a crazily made spiderweb or photograph a flower. The hike to the falls and to see the 3,000 year old Alerce tree was a highlight. We didn't sight the Magellanic woodpecker or wire-tail but the sighting of the huala (grebe) and the flightless steamer ducks made my day!
