Latin America > Chile > further Regions > Puerto Montt Patagonia

Puerto Montt is located in the South of Chile, in Northern Patagonia. A city next to the Pacific Ocean, with a great view to islands, volcanoes and mountains. Arround the cities we can find pristine nature with lots of rivers and lakes and dense forests.

Weather is cold and rainy in wintertime, warmer and drier in summer, but we can allways expect rainshowers in the middle of our summer.
