Lago Villarrica, Pucon
(4.5/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Stand in the shadows of one of the world's most active volcanos at Lago Villarrica. The lake, known for its impressive views of nearby Villarrica's snow-capped peak, covers a surface area of 170 sq km (65.6 sq mi), with several towns perched on its shores. Go for a swim at the main beach, in the town of Pucon, where large crowds gather in summer to enjoy water temperatures around 20 C (68 F). Kayak out onto the lake to take in the scenery in peace.

  • Cute and nice place for summer vacation, with varied activities that can be done, for adults and children, recommended completely

  • A beautiful Lake, with spectacular panoramic views. The boat ride is something that can not be done!

  • The landscape that offers the Villarrica Lake, is simply beautiful, with a fantastic view to the volcano of the same name, this lake you can walk in boats and bathing together with family or friends. The only downside of this Lake, is that with the large number of boats that run through this Lake, the water can be found a little dirty, so I recommend not to bathe together with very young children in this Lake.
