Puerto Montt

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.
Get out of town with these interesting Puerto Montt side-trips: Puerto Varas (Parque Nacional Vicente Perez Rosales & Petrohué Waterfalls). There's much more to do: get impressive views of Volcan Osorno, tour the pleasant surroundings at Angelmo, explore the activities along Lago Todos Los Santos, and take in the waterfront at Muelle de Paseo.

To see where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Puerto Montt day trip planning site.

Main city on Chile's Chiloe Island, Castro represents one of the country's oldest inhabited settlements, making its fortune as both a tourist center and transportation hub.
Kick off your visit on the 20th (Sun): get lost in a book at Biblioteca Publica de Castro, then admire the striking features of Church of San Francisco, and then make a trip to Costanera. Keep things going the next day: explore the striking landscape of Chiloe National Park, then stop by Aylla Chiloe, and then examine the collection at Museo Municipal de Castro.
