We came to Pucon to hike to the summit of Volcan Villarica and left 3 days later having not done that, or very much else. Once again the weather closed us down - bugger, bugger, bugger. We had nothing but low cloud, rain, fog, wind and even a few flurries of snow. In the same hostel were a group of French guys who'd been waiting a few days for a break in the weather that never came, but in Puerto Varas we met an American couple who'd done it without any waiting, just the luck of the draw. Pucon is a nice enough town but without outdoor sports there's not much to do so we had a more relaxing couple of days than we'd expected. Because we couldn't see any of the mountains or volcanoes we didn't even take any photographs.
