Pucón to Pucón Kayak Retreat by BUS

Buses in Pucón run every half hour (from 6:00 am – 10:00 pm) and cost roughly $600 pesos (circa $1 USD).

  1. Across from the Jac Bus Station in Downtown Pucón are buses with the label “Caburgua” on top. These local buses are small (roughly 20 passengers).. MAKE SURE YOU TAKE THE RIGHT ONE LABELED – CABURGUA.
  2. Tell the bus driver you want to stop at “Pucón Kayak Retreat” or our neighbor business “Cabanas Metrenehue” at “Puente Metrenehue”.
  3. After about a 10 KM drive, look for a yellow kayak by the gate. If you cross over the Trancura (via Metrenehue Bridge), ask the driver to stop immediately. Get out, walk back across the bridge and take your first left into our property.

Pucón to Pucón Kayak Retreat by TAXI or Uber

Taxis cost between $8,000 and $15,000 CLP. Make sure you get the taxi driver to quote your price upfront!

Driving to Pucón Kayak Retreat

  1. Drive through Pucón and take the International Highway in the direction of Caburgua.
  2. Pass the roundabout, go a few kilometers, then pass a small airport on your left. Keep going straight.
  3. Approximately 10 KM from Pucón (and 4 KM from the small airport) you will leave the commercial district and enter more forested terrain. Just prior to Puente Metrenehue (the bridge that crosses the Trancura River) is a street light, which is agood marker at night. Our property is within sight of the bridge, so if you’ve made it that far, you’re super close!
  1. The retreat driveway is JUST before the Rio Trancura bridge (aka “Puente Metrenehue”) on the right. There is a kayak at the gate but is not easy to see.
  2. If you cross the Rio Trancura Bridge, you’ve gone slightly too far. Just turn around and take the first driveway to your left after your cross BACK OVER the bridge (if you’re standing on the bridge, we are just upstream on river left).
