Villarica Volcanic Caves

I am travelling in August to Chile and I found interesting this program of the volcanic caves. It is possible to go with children (ages 8 and 12)? It is worth while? How can I do the programation of this tour?

I think there is a minimum age of 12 for visiting the caves. As far as I remember, if you have a car you just drive out to them (about 12 km from Pucón) and pick up a guide there. If you don't have a car, then your hotel or guest house can arrange a tour.

One thing which the whole family can enjoy is a visit to the hot springs at Huife. There are changing rooms and lockers, lovely hot pools and eating options which range from sandwiches to a full meal. Again, you drive there (about 30 minutes from Pucón) or get your hotel to arrange transport.

You usually get a better price arranging tours through your hotel and they pick you up from there.
