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.

Whilst in Pucon, we made the most of the Chilean wine. We discovered that it was as cheap to drink wine as water! We drank our way through the different varieties, like ...
... lagoon with some of the clearest blue water I've ever seen. We hiked down stream for a while, looking for somewhere to have a swim but alas there were 'no swimming' signs everywhere and some pretty serious currents. Afterwards we tried to walk to another hot springs that we'd seen a sign for on the road, but unfortunately it was a private hotel. Damn!
It was an awesome five days and we probably could have stayed longer, but it was time to move on.
