With the city and commune set among a wealth of impressive natural sights, holidays in Villarica tend to be outdoors and full of adventures. The volcano and lake of the same name undoubtedly represent the main attractions of Villarica, with numerous tour companies arranging ecotourism experiences in the protected areas of landscape. Traditional Villarriquences have made their money from grain and dairy farming, though a recent wave of European and American expatriates, drawn to the summer recreation and winter sports of the region, have changed the dynamics of the city somewhat, opening it up to international tourism. When using our Chile sightseeing planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Our expert advice on where to stay in Villarrica

The main urban area of Villarrica features a wide range of accommodations, with tourism in the area long-established and catering to outdoor adventurers and laid-back sightseers alike. Choose from simple budget hostels located on the side streets a few roads back from the lake, or more upmarket hotels situated closer to the water, with many rooms offering extensive views of the impressive lake. Unsurprisingly, lots of accommodations cluster in the area surrounding the lake. Follow Highway 199 east around shore to scope out some of the region's more exclusive hotels and resorts, offering facilities such as spas, restaurants, and swimming pools, plus views of the lake.
