Pucón is an amazing city that has all that you've got to and want to see from Chile. It has an incredible ski resort on the Volcano, it has a beautiful beach, incredible night life and exquisite places to eat and have a good time. Its a very good destination either to go with family or with friends. You wont regret it!
I went this year in May, and it was incredible, I recommend a visit to the spa at night, the stars are amazing of the Liucura Along the river. They are the first spas in the chain (Pozones, Huife, Quimeyco, Liucura) down to Pucón. Its beauty is the beauty that is typical of southern Chile, which is indescribable. It has long been a favorite place for young people, mostly backpackers and tourists, who are impressed by solitude and silence. These springs are famous for their natural pools made of rocks. It has 7 pools of different sizes and temperatures between 30 ° and 42 ° C. The river runs along Liucura the baths, which makes it possible to change the temperature for a few minutes diving in the river. The place can be accessed by walking down 100 meters to reach the valley of Liucura. When you get into the pools you can not enter with the car into the baths themselves, but, almost definitely they would have constructed a path to get to to the same pools.
This was a unique experience, travelling and discovering 4 of the most important thermal centers oin southern Chile was amazing, relaxation, fun, fine dining, outdoor activities, and more. Actually you just have to get to know and discover the beauty that Chile has to offer.
I tell you that this summer I returned from a visit to Pucon, is a lovely place in southern Chile, between the Villarrica volcano (still active) and the lake of the same name. There are many of things to do: winter ski center, volcanic sand beaches, hiking, caving in lava caves, hot springs and more. A highly recommended place for people who love nature and tranquility. I recommend many areas nearby the springs, the thermal wild, rock pools with different water temperatures along the river Trancura, it has little infrastructure but compensates with the sound of nature.

Years ago, when I was an engineering student in tourism, I had the chance to visit this place, it wasa trip with my friend from school, where he also had the chance to see beautiful places in the Pucón area and around. The nature reserve Cañi, and our main objective, the summit of Stone Eagle, with a height of 1600 meters with a panoramic view of 4 volcanoes in the area and the nearest villages. In the ascent to this we found biodiversity, forests of pine, coihues and other endemic species that can be more than 2000 years old, a dozen lakes, waterfalls and scenery that changes as we continued . The tour continued to be intimidating, at times the forest becomes intense, very populated and is not hard to get lost in the greenery, the sounds of birds and nature that makes you feel small, plus the odd story of pumas hanging around, give even more excitement to the journey. Finally, after hours of trekking, the objective was reached, but not before more than once, we wanted to give up, yielding to physical exhaustion , but it is the same need to reach the goal, the body conquered the mountain that lets get on with pain and exhaustion, but with the unsurpassed bounty to be on top and bring out the divine construction.
Pucón is a great tourist district. Here you can breathe clean air and natural beauty can see the Volcano, high rise hills, streams and rivers, and old trees. Pucón is a city unlike any other in the country. Here one can see many flowers, wooden signs and construction with stone and wood, as well as the friendliness of its inhabitants, which makes the Pucón community a friendly community.
On one of my trips, as a wandering cook, a few years ago, after preparing an event in the forest, on the slopes of the volcano, I was able to to the heart of a volcano, the only experience comparable is what one sees in movies or documentaries, these caves were formed when lava came up from the bottom of the earth, making its way and finding a way out, then, when in contact with the atmosphere the surface began to solidify until finally the process of eruption ends, and leaves behind empty caves which form a tunnel through which the journey was made. The place has an appropriate light, dim and mysterious that creates an intimidating atmosphere, not for nothing are the mapuches called Rucapillan or house of the devil, and remember that this is in a still active volcano, perhaps the most active in all of Chile. The area offers many other activities such as trekking, canopy, and 4x4, it also has catering facilities and everything needed for a wonderful adventure. Undoubtedly visiting the area is a unique experience that every traveller, adventurer or "vagabond" should do.
