  • Beautiful place. You can appreciate all the native trees of Los lagos región. If you are lucky you will see foxes, birds, frogs, and if you are more lucky who knows you will see a Puma. Remember that you can go to the park through the entrance of Lenca, chaica or through the entrance in Correntoso.
