Welcome to El Rincón

After 25 years as Seafarer’s it was time to put down some roots on terra firma.
Since our twenties, the Maritime industry had provided the opportunity to travel extensively, and experience people and cultures of many countries.

Searching for a ‘new life’ we came to Chile for the first time in 2011 and travelled thousands of kilometres both North and South.
The beauty, diversity, and changing landscapes of Chile were awe inspiring.
On this journey, we found ‘El Rincon.’
An established Hostel since 15 years or so, in a region of Chile that enjoys a very pleasant ‘Mediterranean’ climate, standing in 2 hectares of beautiful and natural garden.

We hope to offer our Guests all the things we liked best from our own travel experiences in Chile.
At El Rincon you will find a calm and peaceful surrounding of natural beauty, a homely atmosphere, good food, and friendly company.


Roland & Wendy look forward to meeting you!
