When asked about their favourite town in Chile, travellers often answer Pucón, Chile. This little town in the Los Ríos region offers many activities -- much more than the quiet Villarrica nearby. It draws a huge amount of tourists every year, due to its close proximity to the Villarrica and Huerquehue national parks. Young, party-loving backpackers will enjoy Pucón's bars and nightlife, while others will head straight to the wonderful nature by which it is surrounded.

There's plenty of choice when looking for accommodation. Pucón, Chile hostels are numerous and scattered throughout the town. Prices can vary and may rise depending on the season. The good thing is that you can compare and pick what's best. Always check the location. If a Pucón, Chile hostel is located in or near the main street, noise will continue throughout the night, while a Pucón, Chile hostel a bit further away is a bigger guarantee for a good sleep. Also the dorm size should be taken into account; the more beds, the bigger the chance of being woken up by night owls returning from Pucón's cosy bars.

Most hostels in Pucón, Chile, offer good accommodation, but if they are cheaper than the others, expectations should be lower. Dorms could be cramped, walls may be thin, and toilets could be limited. Nevertheless, some of Pucón, Chile's hostels are amongst the best hostels in the country and still ask reasonable prices.

Aside from partying and sleeping, Pucón offers a plethora of activities. The main street houses more than a dozen agencies that organise tours and adventures for every age. There's rafting, canyoning, kayaking, mountain biking -- and last but not least, the Villarrica volcano climb. Undoubtedly, the hostels in Pucón, Chile, will also provide you with information about these activities, sometimes even allowing you to book them at the hostel itself. Don't forget that booking them in advance during high season is a good idea. If you want to save a bit of money and explore the national parks by yourself, just head to the microbus terminal in the center of town.

Whatever you are interested in doing, Pucón has something for everyone. The great amount of tourists might give the place a crowded feeling, but it is a genuinely cosy place to be, and whatever your plans are, you'll end up staying longer.
