First, I am the owner and visionary of Pucon Kayak Hostel. Second, thank you Tango and fixedgearmike for your positive recommendations.
We would be enthusiastic to host you and your group. As a director of a kayak academy I was lucky enough to purchase Rio Trancura riverside property just 6 miles from Pucon. As Captain said Chile is expensive. But Pucon Kayak Hostel changed the game by offer whatever our kayak clients want. If you want an all-inclusive guided tour of the rivers, lodging in one of the geodesic domes or the hosteria, great meals and coaching then we'll give you as good of a program as you will find.
If you are a do-it-yourselfer on a budget then you have camping and dormitory and cook your own meals options.
The cool part of the place is that it brings kayakers together under one roof. Nightly, in the center piece quincho kayakers are sharing stories and beers next to the fire as they eat dinners. It is not uncommon to have kayakers from 8 various countries at dinners.
Guests can rent our kayaks for $20/day. You have the option to rent our trucks or hire a shuttle or hire a guide.
What about the kayaking? Ask anyone and you will hear that the Pucon area offers arguably the best kayaking on the planet. And it's not just class V. It's class II, III, IV and V on our backyard Rio Trancura. And a multitude of other runs for the beginners and intermediates make the area work for every kayak level.
