Hotels in Pucón – How to choose accommodation that is right for you?
Just a quick search for accommodation in Pucón on any booking engine and you will find over 800 options listed! This is an enormous amount given the relatively small size of the town. But it is also testament to what a great all-year round destination Pucón is and just how much there is on offer to do here!
However, on first glimpse the variety of options available can seem just too much.
How do you choose from the many many cabañas, hotels, hostels and lodges on offer?
www.pucon.com can help you! Now under new management and here to stay!

In addition, to help make this an easier process or you, check out our tips here based on a few essential questions:
#1. Size of your travel group?
This will immediately define if you need a hotel room for two, a larger self-catered apartment or a cabaña for more. It is usually the first filter style question you come across on most websites. Pucón has many cabaña style resorts that focus on the summer season only so you will find many of these available between November and April.
Insider info: Mornings and evenings here in the south can, at times, be fresh even during the summer months so if this is important to you then do check on heating options. Most hotels have good heating but not all cabañas do!
#2. Will you be travelling by car or intend to rent a car?
If you plan on travelling with a car this does extend your options as you can stay out of town and still move freely without relying on transfers or taxis.
Insider info: Parking spots in central Pucón can be hard to find during the summer months so get into town early to secure your spot.
#3. Do you have small kids?
A handful of places don't take kids in Pucón but most do. Some of the larger cabaña resorts are set up with kids play areas and have green spaces where they can get rid of some of that energy!
Insider info: It is fairly normal that kids stay free up to a certain age (between 3 and 6 years) if they don't require an extra bed, but if you do, even for a child under the "free" age bracket, there will probably be an additional fee.
#4. Are you looking for a hotel to beach style holiday or more active, adventure-filled days?
This doesn't really influence so much on the type of accommodation you choose as you can fill your days with whatever you like regardless of your lodging, but some locations are closer to the beach while others require that you drive in.
Insider info: If you are interested in adventure activities do contact your chosen hotel/cabañas in advance as they may have a link with one of the local agencies and can maybe get you a better deal.
#5. How important is it to you to be able to walk to restaurants from your hotel?
Pucón has many accommodation options in the center of town which means you can walk out of your door and find restaurants at every corner. The downside is that parking can be hard if the hotel doesn't have its own, and some places can be noisy until fairly late in mid-summer.
Insider info: Taxis are easy to get and fairly cheap so staying anywhere within 3-5 km from the center is a good option if you prefer a bit more tranquility.
#6. Do you want to have breakfast included or want to be able to cook your own meals?
Most hotels include breakfast but cabañas usually don't, or they charge an additional price per person if you book in advance. Some hotels have self-catering options onsite with small functional kitchenettes that serve their purpose for simple food preparation.
Insider info: Breakfast is usually served between 7.30 and 10.30 so if you plan on lazy long morning lie ins maybe your best option is to go for something self-catered where you can prepare your own breakfast at whatever time you choose!
#7. Do you want an onsite pool?
This is a perfect additional alternative, especially if you have kids. The black sand beach in Pucón is fantastic but can get very busy in the summer so having the choice could turn out to be crucial.
Insider info: If water temperature is important to you then do check when booking if the pool is heated as cool nights, even in summer, means the water can take a fair while to heat up naturally during the day!
Every couple/family has their own "must haves". Defining what "value added" means is highly subjective because it of course depends on what you truly, well, value! Is it that stunning view over the lake that is worth paying more for to you, or is a stocked mini bar essential? Do you want to be able to walk home from the late night bars or do you prefer to be out of town and away from the hustle and bustle? Do you really need wifi or do you want to completely disconnect?
By answering these questions honestly you can find something that fits your needs as Pucón really does have everything!

“Amazing experience, very professional & safe guides, great kit” We were recommended this company by our first choice - aguadventura - who were oversubscribed. I cannot rate them highly enough. Our group size was really small, 5 with 2 guides. When you compare this to the enormous groups of 20+ - all trekking up in a slow procession, which looked really dull, I think we had a great deal!

“Very Profesional, Great experience, best Value!” We climbed the Villarrica Volcano with this agency, and I must say that the experience was superlative. From the beginning John Barriga, the manager, gave us a very precise and professional briefing on how our journey was going to be. We were taken on a bus to the foot mountain and set off for our adventure. The guides are excellent and the clothing and other equipment we had, were very good. This agency is not the cheapest of the city, but it is certainly one of the best, if not the best of Pucon.
