Robinson Crusoe Island

Island of pirates and treasures, visiting it is going into the fantastic world of writer Daniel Defoe. Look everywhere for Friday, so he can guide you along the coastal cliffs, through the lush endemic vegetation and to the amazing sea monsters represented by the coveted lobsters of the Juan Fernández Archipelago.

Also known as Desert Island, as it hugs the Pacific with the most absolute loneliness, Robinson Crusoe is the ideal place if you want to get away from the world and enjoy a new level of connection with nature.

Swim in its crystal-clear waters, dive to the bottom and discover the rich underwater life. Enjoy diving in the company of the friendly South American fur seals, indigenous species of this Biosphere Reserve, a place that has inspired many legends.

Go kayaking, fishing and sailing. Test your physical stamina along the trekking paths that run through virtually untouched lands like the Centinela Hill, Puntas de Isla and Puerto Francés. End your day by tasting a typical seafood dish while on a “chalupa”, a boat that has a kitchenette onboard.

When planning your trip, remember to withdraw money from the ATM while on the continent, as there are no banking services on the island and because the local shops are only for basics.
