This new tourism company, "Turismo La Cascada" belonging to Benjamín Alan Rossel Vargas. It has started to develop tourist activities in the area of Puerto Rio Tranquilo.
Its founder has a vast experience and knowledge of the tourism industry, based on a business activity he has carried out since the 1980s in the Aysén region.
Benjamín Alan Rossel Vargas began his business activity in the 1980s with the sale of passenger transport services on the intercity route from Puerto Chacabuco to Coyhaique and along the Carretera Austral. He also provides transport services along the interregional route to the X region and special trips to Argentina, as well as transport services along routes and tourist attractions throughout the Aysén region.
In the 1990s it incorporated regional and national freight transport into its business activities.
In the year 2000, the construction of cabins and flats began, selling accommodation services for tourists and businessmen. Gradually, it incorporated the sale of out door activities and car rental services.
Since 2010, with the purchase of the motorboat Cau Cau for the transfer of passengers and cargo, and later with the purchase of the Magella Spirit catamaran, the company began river and maritime transfer services for local passengers and tourists, including navigation in the fjords of the Aysén region and the transfer of passengers and cargo for the fishing and aquaculture industry.
On the basis of this knowledge acquired in 45 years developing a business activity linked to regional productive growth with land / sea transport and accommodation and cabin rental services, Benjamín Alan Rossel Vargas analyses the state of the regional market for special interest tourism, recognising the area of Puerto Rio Tranquilo, Valle Exploradores and Laguna San Rafael as the most booming area in the development of tourism in the demand for out door activities linked to glaciers and Patagonia.
The number of 60,000 tourists who visited the southern southern area of Aysén added to the installation in Puerto Rio Tranquilo of a wide range of complementary services to the visits and excursions to the explorers glacier and the San Rafael lagoon, which has increased by 150% in the last two years, increasing from 4 to 10 tour operators established in the town of Puerto Rio Tranquilo during the 2015 - 2016 season, support the decision to invest in this business.
