Though the city serves as a regional transport and commercial hub, vacations in Puerto Montt rarely focus on the city itself; instead, Southern Chile's volcanoes, glacial lakes, and national parks get most of the attention here.

There's still lots to do: get impressive views of Volcan Osorno, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Llanquihue, get engrossed in the history at Puerto Montt Historical Museum Juan Pablo II, and see the interesting displays at Museo Antonio Felmer.
