Pucon Kayak Retreat has a great location right outside Pucon. You can put on the lower Trancura right on the property. The lodging is great and the staff is very welcoming and accommodating. If you're thinking of travelling to Chile to go kayaking definitely give these guys a try!

Pucon Kayak Retreat is amazing! What an incredible spot right on the river in the world’s best kayak destination. I arrived quite early in the season and David was able to connect me with local paddlers, outfit me with boat and paddle, and open my eyes to the phenomenal paddling in Pucon. We ran high water upper and lower Trancura, Todo Palguin, Upper Liucura, as well as scope out various park and huck waterfalls. All within 20 min drive from the Retreat! I totally fell in love with Pucon and the Pucon Kayak Retreat! I’ll definitely be back soon. If you come to Pucon go with the Kayak Retreat. 100% worth it!

We had an awesome stay at Dave's kayak hostal, very convenient for a kayaking trip since it is located at the take out of the Upper Trancura. Dave helped us a lot with kayaking logistics and showed us a lot of different sections of river. If you are looking to go kayaking in Chile, Pucón Kayak Retreat is the place you have to go! Thanks a lot Dave and see you next year!

If you love the outdoors, than you’ll love the Pucon kayak hostel! The hosts are stoked, nothing but love and respect for the outdoors! The most amazing feature is the out door shower surrounded by huge trees in your own little Idaho.

I came to Pucon Kayak Retreat for three weeks and it has been nothing short of exceptional. The staff are extremely kind and always going about their day with smiles on their faces. The comfortable and unique accommodations are surrounded by a beautiful property hidden by large trees and gorgeous greenery. There are numerous World Class rivers nearby that I had been dreaming of running for years, not to mention some of the most breathtaking riverbanks I've ever seen. The owner Dave can always be found on the property and is always there if you need anything. Dave can answer any question you have about his business or anything Chile related, he is extremely kind and clearly very passionate about what he does. I would recommend Pucon Kayak Retreat to anyone and I will most definitely be returning!

Going into my time at Pucon Kayak Retreat, I had very high expectations. Many close friends of mine had stayed with Dave before, and all their comments highly praised the Retreat. To say the least, I was not disappointed. Dave was extremely warm and welcoming to our large group and provided the best place possible. Located in Pucon, the epicenter of whitewater kayaking in Chile, we had access to many great rivers and waterfalls. The Retreat itself is located on the banks of the Trancura, an excellent beginner river. However, within an hour's drive you can find some of the best paddling in the world. There's a section for everyone. The service at the Retreat was excellent, and Dave did everything possible to make our experience the best. The food was delicious, the rooms were pristine, and my time was amazing. I've already began to plan my return trip! Thank you so much!!

Pucon kayak retreat is one of greatest places I’ve ever been too. It’s on the banks of an amazing river and near the upper palguine which is one of my favorite rivers I’ve ever run. The housing is amazing and Dave is such a great host. It’s been a phenomenal trip.

David Hughes and his staff at Pucon Kayak Retreat put together a fantastic trip for our college program Rivers of Life through Colorado Mountain College in Steamboat Springs. Our needs were vast and required a high level of logistics with guest speakers, river shuttles, food shops, and more. David's staff offered great one-on-one instruction and conversation with our students and helped create a trip of a life time for us! The accommodations at the retreat were first class and the food was above and beyond. We look forward to bringing our next group back!!

Thank you Matt. Hosting Colorado Mountain College, co-developing Chile river conservation, and working with the CMC students has been one of the single most rewarding projects of my career.
