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.

It is 8 am and we just boarded our last bus, at least for the next six weeks, as we are heading south from Pucón to Puerto Varas, our entryway into Northern Patagonia, where we will pick up our "Wicked" camper van.

When the water became too deep, we walked for a 1/4 kilometer, as a group, carrying our bags, across a bridge completely submerged, passing by a boat, walking across wooden boards as police officers took our hands to help us onto drier land where another bus was waiting for us to take us the rest of the way to Pucón.
Finally we made it to Pucón, 183 kilometers from San Martín de Los Andes, a drive which should ...
... I act; deplorable. We arrived early in the morning and I immediately gambled on turning left to get to the main town from the bus station. 1 hour and 500m-to-the-right we made it to the hostel. The town is super nice and feels like a ski village in Europe with wooden cabins/huts and a backdrop of the snow-capped Villarrica Volcano amongst other mountains. National parks are in abundance nearby offering skiing, forest zip line trips, white water rafting, horse riding ...
... spiders and slugs – how glamorous! When we said to Emma how gross they
were she said that we should wait and see what we get in Bolivia! Hopefully
will be a bit hardened to it by then as we don’t get there until March. Really
looking forward to Bolivia actually, its probably the poorest country we will
see – we get to go down the mines and go to La Paz which is supposed to be a
manic bustling city – bring it on!
