With rafting companies, grocery stores, Internet cafes, coffee shops, ice cream parlors, and more along the main street, Pucón has the relaxed atmosphere of a summer retreat. The lively downtown area features open-air markets, a variety of restaurants, and boutiques—a unique combination of the fun and functional. Upscale hotels and casinos line the beach of Lago Villarrica, which offers swimming, sunning, boat rentals, and ample opportunities for rolling and technique tune-ups.
The surrounding area boasts many sightseeing and recreational diversions. The most notable of these is the chance to climb the active volcano that towers above the town of Pucón. The day-long excursion will take you to the summit of Volcán Villarrica. If wind conditions permit, you can peer into the cone to view the escaping gases and sometimes, molten lava. Trips are offered daily through Sol y Nieve. Also in close proximity to Pucón are los Ojos de Caburga park and waterfalls, hot springs, a zip-line (canopy) tour, horseback riding and more. To the West of our area is the coastal port of Valdivia. Highlights of the city include a tour of the Old Spanish fort, the artisan center on the wharf, and the harbor sea lions. Relive a piece of Chile’s history as you wander among the cannons and back through time.
