"Pucon, Chile" Pucón by ISPARTACUS

Pucón Travel Guide: 46 reviews and 136 photos


Pucon is a picturesque little town in southern Chile. It is an eleven hour drive by tour bus from Santiago. Pictured here is an example of German arquitecture in the town. Many Germans settled in Pucon and the nearby town of Villarica in the early 19th century.

There are some fine shops that sell German pastry...the real thing....and delicious...hmmmm.

Lake Villarica

Lake Villarica can be viewed at the edge of town. A better view can be seen at the nearby town of Villarica. From Villarica you can see the whole lake...it is an awesome sight...especially at sun-set.


There is a section of Pucon devoted to the tourist which consist of row after row of fine restaurants and small shops. Here I am dining at one of their fine restaurants. Tourist visit Pucon all year round with skiing in the winter months and boating and swimming in the summer months.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lovely tourist attraction with fine food and shopping.
  • Cons:Far, far away from Santiago-A LONG LONG DRIVE
  • In a nutshell:Beautiful scenery of volcano and lake-worth the trip.
