European Landscape in South America
Everywhere you go in Pucon you can see the Villarrica volcano. Choose one restaurant, order some of those marvelous "empanadas" and drink a pisco admiring the breathtaking view of Villarrica. Those wooden little houses, the cool wind coming from the Villarrica lake . The Park Lake Hotel and its great breakfast.
One thing that you can't miss when you arrive to Pucon are the wooden flower shops with their shiny colors. Wooden flowers are one very good gift for yourself if you want to remeber Pucon. There all types of flowers, with all kinds of colors. They're around $500 and $1000 pesos, depending on the size of the flowers. Nice gift. Definately.
Pucón Family Stay and Independance Day
You'll have a great time in Pucon, the adventure tourism capital of Chile. You can climb volcanos, go hiking, biking, river rafting, and jump out planes, if you wish.
If you want to stay with a family, I suggest staying with Lalo. See my accomodations tip.
It's a sleepy little town, but nice to visit, fast internet, and good food. Just be sure to avoid the rainy season. You won't be able to climb the volcano unless the weather is perfect. I stayed there a week in their winter, and it rained every day. Ick.
