Survey the 1,500 pieces from the pre-Columbian era at Museo Mapuche Pucon, dedicated to the display of artifacts and ephemera of the indigenous communities who dwelled in Southern Chile prior to colonialization. Lythic art, silverware, pottery, and weapons spanning hundreds of years all share space here. The works stand behind glass panels, accompanied by full information on their respective periods. Be aware that stated opening times may not be altogether reliable throughout the year, so make a backup plan for your excursion should the museum be closed. Put Museo Mapuche Pucon into our Pucon road trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

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.
