    Night at Puerto Varas

    December 26, 2017 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    We decided to spend the night at Puerto Varas. The hotels were quite expensive near the beach so we decided to check some of them away from the coast. On the way to one of them, we passed the Gruta de Lourdes just next to the main church, Corazón de Jesús. Its a small grotto in a park with the statue of Mary there. People had decorated it with flowers and lit candles. We couldn't really find any information board regarding the special significance of the place. The church was closed by the time we reached there but we found a nice cabaña just next to it at a decent price of 50000 CLP for the 4 of us. After checking in, we walked down to the town center again to fetch our car and later for dinner as well. The skies had cleared by then and we could see both the volcanoes along the lake shore.Read more
