Chelin & Quehui: the heart of the archipelago
Set sail on our very own boat, the Williche, journeying southwest to the islands of Chelin and Quehui on this exciting full-day expedition.
We’ll dock at Chelin, a beautiful island laden with original houses tucked along old-fashioned streets, where we’ll stumble upon the neoclassical World Heritage Site church which has been painstakingly preserved with the help of local artisans and architects.
We’ll continue to the cemetery, a fascinating sight to behold with tombstones imitating the village’s very own wooden shingled homes, making it appear like a miniature town of the dead, lost in time.
After viewing neighboring islands from a look out and crossing a small forest, we’ll sail to Quehui Island, reaching the island center via the calm waters of the Pindo Estuary. Here, we can try kayaking, cruising the shoreline by Zodiac or cycling trails with amazing views.
We can also walk down the picturesque streets of Quehui, which receives many visitors to its annual “Ocean Festival,” a traditional gathering featuring area cuisine, folklore and customs. We then lunch aboard and return to the hotel
