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.

Once we arrived at the river it was out of the van, on with the gloves and no hesitation straight ...
... since last winter and seeing lots of snow pictures from back home. The views were amazing as well! It took 5 hours to reach the summit. We had water and snack breaks on the way up, usually in a rocky area or on the side of the steep incline where the guide would have to use an ice axe on the snow to create a flat spot for us. We were looking forward to getting to the top and just sit but after we saw the crater we were both too excited. Seeing the smoke coming out of it ...
Obviously I woke up on the bus. Felt pretty rested. Only woke up two or three times to stretch my neck. Think we arrived around 9ish. Which meant like half an hour after I woke up. Pucón is considered to be the adventure capital of Chile. Loads of outdoor activities to do. In Pucón we stay at Dondegerman hostel, which was a 10 min walk away from the bus station. When we arrived at this place we sat down and Guidi (our tour leader) went briefly through all the activities we could ...
