There aren't many towns in the world where you can come out of a grocery store and see the towering majesty of a smoking volcano. Pucon, gateway to the Chilean lake district, started off as more of a staging post and grew into a thriving resort. Today it seems the pendulum has swung a little too far towards catering for tourists. The town of Villarica, about 30 minutes' drive away, offers more authenticity.

Pucon is a charming part of the lake district in Chile, and reminded me of Oregon or Washington in the US. Black sand beaches make the lake a landmark, and a good place for an easy weekend of camping and lounging, or a good base camp to climb Mt. Villarica

Just a short flight from Santiago (or a longer overnight bus ride), this little Lake District town makes for a great adventure base camp. Must-dos in the region include hot springs and if you're up for a thrill, volcano climbing.
