Puerto Montt, Chile
Puerto Montt is an important port city and the gateway to the Patagonia region of southern Chile. Located at the northern end of the beautiful Reloncavi Sound, Puerto Montt reminds some visitors of Seattle, Washington, another city on a sound with a volcano for a backdrop. Founded by Germans in the mid-1800s, it features European architecture with shingles, high-pitched roofs, and beautiful, ornate balconies. Many travellers use their accommodation in Puerto Montt as a stepping stone for visits to Chile's nearby southern Lake District, the magical Chiloé islands or Chilean Patagonia, but others spend all their time enjoying the city's charms.
The city offers a variety of attractions to visitors on cheap holidays to Puerto Montt. Museums include the Museo Juan Pablo II and the Casa del Arte Diego Rivera, while the city's unique religious and secular architecture includes the redwood cathedral (Iglesia de los Jesuitas) on the city's plaza. Some of the area's most spectacular national parks - Vicente Pérez Rosales and Alerce Andino - are only an hour away, and nearby pueblos along the Reloncavi Sound and the Pacific coast beckon. And Angelmo, a small fishing village within walking distance of Puerto Montt, features great seafood and handicraft shops. But the city's proximity to Chiloé and Patagonia is Puerto Montt's main draw.

Puerto Montt is a strategically located travel hub, with highways, ferries and railways available to take travellers to nearby coastlines, islands, ice fields and more. Just off the coast, a short boat ride away, is Chiloé, made up of nearly 100 islands, although only 30 or so are inhabited. Modern development is slowly starting to arrive, but Chiloé's way of life is still very traditional, with stilt houses on the shores and wooden churches and chapels seemingly everywhere. But Parque Nacional de Chiloé, on the west coast, is the reason most people come to Chiloé. Very accessible to visitors, it offers numerous hiking trails through dense coastal rainforest. Castro, the island’s capital, makes a good base for exploring the park, although Ancud, another good base for exploring Chiloé, is a fishing village that bustles with activity and local colour.
