Meeting Location and venue

Pucón ( is situated in the Araucanía Region (38° Lat. South), onthe eastern shore of the Villarica lake, with views of the cone-shaped Villarrica volcano. Pucón is a small town, but a major centre of adventure tourism in Chile, due to its privileged natural surroundings, near a volcano and several lakes, natural reserves and hot springs. Some of the activities that can be done near the town are trekking, rafting, mountain biking, horseback riding, bird watching, fishing and canopy. Forests around Pucón are composed of native trees, like Araucarias (Monkey puzzle Trees) and Nothofagus, where rare endemic flora and fauna can be found.

The conference hotel and venue is the Gran Hotel Pucón, built in 1934 at the shore of the lake. We were able to negotiate competitive rates for the participants of the meeting and we can thoroughly recommend this place. Additionally, information on other accommodation options will also be posted.
