Puerto Chacabuco is a Chilean town in Aisen commune. Administratively it belongs to Aisen Province in Aisen Region and is located at the head of Aisen Fjord. It is the main port of the region, a port of call for ships sailing to the Laguna San Rafael National Park and the terminus of a Navimag ferry service from Puerto Montt.
Before the great burnings of the Patagonian forests and the eruption of Mount Hudson volcano in 1991 Puerto Aisen was the main port in the Aisen Fjord, but the ashes and earth erosion decreased the navegability of Aisen River and the port had to be mover further to the coast where Puerto Chacabuco now stands.
