Much of Chile's southern coast looks like somebody crumbled up crackers and dropped them into the sea. Bahía Mala is situated among that fragmented landscape south of Puerto Montt. You take a helicopter in—not extravagant behavior, since there's no road access and the alternatives are boat or raft. The lodge itself is restrained, with four guest cabins that lord over three miles of private beach (a volcanic combo of black sand and dunes) and overlook a Pacific bay churning with dolphins, orcas, and sea lions. (Now you see why it's worth the bother.) To the east, thousands of acres of jungle are laced with waterfalls, streams, and saltwater lakes and guard the only access to the volcano that towers over the property. Fly-fish on private reaches of Río Bahía Mala or take the lodge's boat to cast at sea. Mountain bikes and sea kayaks are on hand, along with a stable of excellent horses. Included in the price are gourmet food, unlimited alcohol, and all the toys—except that chopper, which is also on call for heli-fishing trips.
