The district of Chile Chico is located on the south shore of Lake Carrera, in the General Carrera province of Region XI of Aisén.
It is located 1,777 kilometers from Santiago, 190 km from Cochrane and 395 km from Coyhaique.
The presence of Lake General Carrera provides Chile Chico with unique microclimatic characteristics in the southern region, which allow the cultivation of peaches, apples, pumpkins, watermelons, corn, beans, other products from agriculture in the central area of ??the country, and the characteristic fruit of the city: the cherry.
These natural conditions have given the town, the name of "Ciudad del Sol" and make it the most important settlement point of the province. Chile Chico is one of the oldest towns in the Aysen Region. Its first inhabitants arrived in the area in the year 1905, and the colonization was marked by the incidents of 1918, known as "the war of small chile", in which the settlers had to face carabineros.
