LOVED this place. My family of 5 had our own cabana with two bedrooms, and a full well equipped kitchen in the cabana. Emma, the owner, and Valentina, were both amazingly friendly and helpful. Valentina spent an evening with me and my family teaching us how to make Empanadas! The place was warmed by a wood burning stove, into which coal and wood were place nightly and every morning if we wanted. We picked peaches and apples from the trees behind the cabins. Would DEFINITELY stay here if ever back in Pucón.

Well, after Dan's marathon hike up the volcano, Sat was a lazy day and it didn't help that it was cold and wet too.
Sun was yet another lazy day with the afternoon spent at the hot springs at Los Pozones. Well, not totally lazy as the hot springs are located down a very long very steep set of stairs. So many pools to choose from, …

Its one of the worlds most active volcanoes, one of only 5 worldwide to have an active lava lake within its crater. It hasn't erupted since 2008 …
The trip has officially been worth it. The awkward moments with my host family, the relative level of starvation, the borderline racist comments towards my north American origins are all suddenly worth it. Santiago is cool, for like a day, but Chile has the widest variety of natural beauty that I'd much rather acquaint myself with.
It all started when my host sister told me to google Pucon. So take a moment and ...
... and sat on a bench at the shorefront of Lago Villaricca enjoying the sun. Whilst sat there the town’s volcano siren began to sound and our Lonely Planet guide had said to run if you hear it, but no one seemed bothered. We later learnt that it is tested daily at noon. After that we grabbed some lunch and lay on the grass by the lake again and dozed off briefly. We made our way back to the hostel and gathered our things to catch the bus. When we got to the terminal we bumped ...
