Travel Blogs from Puerto Varas
I didn't really give Puerto Montt a chance, I had tried and failed to book a hostel so instead took the offer of renting a room in a little old lady's house. She was very deaf which made communication harder. it was 10 minutes from the centre so after dumping my bag I headed out to try and find some of the famous curanco - a dish of fish, seafood, chicken, sausage and potato cooked in a whole in the ground. Unfortunately the market area I headed to was closed up so ...

We’re staying about a kilometre from the centre of town in a well-rated hotel called Casa Kalfu – and as we approach we can see it’s a beautiful building and very interesting architecture.
