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.

  • The Villarica Lake is busy on both ends by the cities of Pucon and Villarrica, both connected by asphalt road of 24 km bordering the southern shore of the Lake. The Lake has with beaches of sand black which are of this color by living in areas volcanic. The main beach of Pucón is called Playa grande, there you can swim in summer and sports such as sailing, water skiing, windsurfing and kayaking.
