Puerto Varas

Thursday 10th November. By Paul.

In October we met a couple hiking in the Rockies that knew a great friend of ours, Sidney, and also travelled in Chile, our current location. They told us how Puerto Montt is a place to avoid and Puerto Varas is a town to hang out in. So right they were.

Even though the towns are separated by only 20 minutes, the feeling is so different. The Germans had a big influence in Puerto Varas, so it is compact and has lots of pretty buildings. There are two volcanos overlooking the lake, and the coffee served here is not nescafe instant.

These are actually non-objective observations as we didn’t get out of the bus at Puerto Montt, on advice of our friends in the Rockies, the lonely planet guidebook and our desire to maximize our time in great places.
