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.

After an un eventful bus ride watching Dexter we arrived to a gorgeous day in the town of Pucon. A nice guy at the bus station pointed us in the direction of our hostel and we happily picked up our bags in search of adventure. Pucon is famous for the Villarrica Volcano which is a must climb if you are in the area. It is the second most active volcano in Chile and has snow at the top all year round. It is also a ski field in winter. On a good day you can look into the crater and see ...
... this road and then head off right’, he said. He drew a line where supposedly a road might be. A few hours later, via numerous dirt tracks, we found a little hand-written sign saying ‘Cani’. We parked, asked directions and off we set. Five minutes later, the car had to be abandoned and a very steep hill was the way ahead. I let Mike go on alone and preferred to take in the scenery: tiny farms with their beautiful horses, baby ...
