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.

The bus driver stopped the bus at the point right before the river overtook the road and informed us, the passengers, that there was ...
... off, and by now our butts were a little tender. Thankfully we decided to take the main road home and it turned out to be mostly down hill, with the first 4km being nice and fast. Just outside of town we decided to have a break from cycling and played a round of mini golf, good times. After dropping our bikes off we found a lady selling Churros (a Spanish doughnut) filled with Manjar (Chile's version of Dolce de Leche). The only problem with the lady selling the Churros, was that ...
... at the volcano. Wow! We were quiet, just sat taking it in, feeling incredibly lucky to just have that moment to ourselves.
What wasn't so great about Pucon was these little bugs that flew in circles round your head. They made the sound of a bee but looked like a beetle. They would not leave anyone alone. We spent the walk back down batting these little buggers out the way.
We waited for the bus back to Pucon with a Chilean family. Their little boy kept catching ...
