PIanning a day trip is easy due to the short distance between Pucón and Lake Caburgua. Besides, its pleasing surroundings and warm water are extremely appealing whether you want to swim, sunbathe or simply relax on the sand. The road is also attractive and there are a few very popular tourist attractions just outside Pucón, for example the footbridge over the Trancura River or the detours to hot springs and Ojos del Caburgua falls. We reached a small, pleasant town with everything a visitor needs: cabins, restaurants offering typical Chilean food, supermarkets and craft shops. We finally got to the lake and its stunning colors. The blue sky mottled with white clouds reflecting on the water, a few boats, displaying their full sails and the people on the beach were absolutely moving. We stood in the shade of some huge trees for a few minutes taking in the beauty of the scene.
