When I woke up the next morning I immediately set-off to see churches. I ended up taking the local micros to go to Achao, Dalacahue, and Chonchi to see some churches that are considered "patrimonio de la humanidad". The churches are all pretty cool because they are big for such small towns. It's actually interesting that they were all built because the old missionaries wanted to make the eastern side of Chiloé into a garden of churches. I wanted to see more churches, but it would have taken forever using the micros to get to all 16 churches that are national monuments. I would definitely recommend signing up for a tour if you want to see them all. If nothing else using micros it cost me 5000 pesos to see the 3 I went to, so any tour is probably worth the money just saved on micro tickets. I would have taken a tour if any were offered, but it seems as if Chiloé tourism is completely shut-down until true high season (end of December-ish). If you're planning on coming here make sure to come during high season unless you're renting a car and can drive wherever you want on your own.
