Lovely little sea-side village with a great beach and views of nearby volcanos. Unfortunately, it was rainy and overcast when we were there (February 2018) but we enjoyed walking through the town and getting some photos on the beach.

This lake is very big and has several small cities surrounding it. The views of the Osorno volcano across this lake are stunning and the view of the lake from the top of Osorno is equally fantastic.

We came to Puerto Varas as part of Celebrity Cruise excursion out of Puerto Montt, Chili. Lake Lago Lianquihue is the second largest lake in Chili with about 870 sq. miles. The town and the large are framed by Mt. Osorno, a snow capped volcano.

Stopped at Puerto Varas on our way back to Puerto Montt. Most of the group went to see a local church. Lots of hotels and restaurants. Gateway to Patagonia. Would be an interesting place to stay for a few days. Great view across the lake.
