November will definitely be early for Futa.

If you're looking to get better and meet other people PKH is the way to go. Boaters from around the world, David and his staff (which I'm lucky enough to be a part of this year) can take care of shuttles/logistics so you get as much river time as possible.

The other option is to find a place to rent in Pucon. I haven't done this nor did I ever consider doing this but some people obviously go this route.

I will say though, being able to get off the river, come home and have dinner taken care of and eat and be surrounded by people who are all passionate about the same thing is a pretty incredible feeling.

For a trip reference, I stayed at PKH from early November through early January, then headed down to Futa for January through mid February. I was fortunate enough to stay at a friends house while in Futa but teh next best option is Cara Del Indio. Right in the middle of the Bridge to Bridge section.

For creeking in Chile the earlier the better

If you want to get on more creeks and waterfalls then the earlier the better. The snow pack can keep the water table high and lots of stuff may keep running through November. If you are a class V boater then highly recommend November if you can get to Chile that early.
