My wife and I arrive in Puerto Montt this June 26th, 2007 in the morning. We plan to take the two-day lake crossing tour to Bariloche on the 27th. My questions are: 1. Should we spend the one night in Puerto Montt or in Puerto Varas? We are willing to pay up to80 or so for the one hotel night and would like a nice, convenient location for one afternoon of touring. Any suggestions for hotel/hostel? 2. If you had one afternoon to spend in the area like us, what would you do? where would you go? Thank you for the advice.
My friend and I are spending one month in Argentina and Chile. The idea of visiting this island appeals to us, but is it worth the trip? How long does it take to get there from the Chilean coast, and how much would it cost us? (We would do it the cheapest way possible!) We could really only afford to spend one day there. Please advise!! :-)
