|Puerto Varas is one of
Chile's most charming villages, located on the shore of Lago Llanquihue.
Like Pucón, it is an adventure travel hub, and it is also the gateway
to the Parque Nacional Vicente Pérez Rosales. Unlike its neighbor
Puerto Montt, 20 minutes away, it is a spruce little town, with wood-shingled
homes, a rose-encircled plaza, a handsomely designed casino, and an excellent
tourism infrastructure that provides all the necessary services for visitors
without seeming touristy.
A great vacation city in the Lake District, just a short ride north from Puerto Montt, Puerto Varas has casinos, restaurants and hotels. Called the city of roses, it stands beside Chile's largest lake, Lake Llanquihue. Across the lake, scenery is provided by two magnificent volcanoes. If you are to see just one city in Chile this is it. In fact as an experienced traveler to Chile I would just go to Puerto Varas and stop and enjoy.
A great base of operations for Chile's Lake country, Incredible Trout fishing or just wonderful place to stop, relax, enjoy the sceneray and the hospitality of its people.
