  • Beautiful park. We went in the winter and hiked sendero los Lagos and it was absolutely stunning in the snow. If you are in the area you can't miss this park!
  • Climb to San Sebastián. Great view from the top and perfect for a day out.
  • Excellent and extensive Park to explore. It has all trekkings, easy, medium and difficult, hours or days. The landscapes are typical of this area, with lagoons and large slopes. The Park infrastructure is good.

  • It is a wonderful place, where nature is shown in its maximum expression, very nice Park for treaking. I recommend go with time, they open at 8:30 am. They are approximately 3 to 4 hours to reach the area of lakes, mainly in ascent, this time of winter, the lakes are frozen, it is beautiful. Totally recommended. Wear comfortable clothes, water and food.

  • Preferred national park. It is very beautiful. I caught my attention the amount of flora that had this park, for me I had never seen araucarias, I was surprised by the amount that was in this park. It has very good viewpoints and many waterfalls. One can be downloaded in the Green Lake if one wants it. What am I, I recommend it.

Where to stay in Pucon

As a world-renowned haven for outdoor adventurers, Pucon features a wide range of options when it comes to places to stay, though the bottom line for even budget prices is significantly higher than elsewhere in Chile. Many of the most affordable establishments are the hostels clustered in the city center, which often feature communal areas popular with the backpacker crowd. On the other end of the spectrum, you can opt for upscale lodges with their own pools, restaurants, and Wi-Fi capabilities, also within walking distance of just about any place in town. Pucon teems with adventure travelers in January and February, when prices go up and availability plummets. Make reservations ahead to avoid disappointment, or opt to go outside the height of tourist season.
