Puerto Montt

Though the city serves as a regional transport and commercial hub, vacations in Puerto Montt rarely focus on the city itself; instead, Southern Chile's volcanoes, glacial lakes, and national parks get most of the attention here. Established in 1853, the port city has prospered primarily because of its salmon farming industry, with much of Puerto Montt having an industrial, working-class feel. You'll find a good set of places to eat in town, including some of the region's most popular restaurants. Still, the main attraction of Puerto Montt remains its convenient location close to the region's natural highlights. Puerto Montt is in Los Lagos Region.

Where to stay in Puerto Montt

The most attractive of Puerto Montt's accommodations sit by the water, with new-build and nicely aged hotels offering extensive views and comfortable rooms. Move away from the water and prices tend to drop somewhat; budget hotels and guesthouses cluster in largely residential areas of the city, offering a nice enough place to put down your bags and go explore the region. If your focused on exploring the surrounding landscape, consider staying close to one of the main arterial roads for convenient regional travel options.
