Though the city serves as a regional transport and commercial hub, vacations in Puerto Montt rarely focus on the city itself; instead, Southern Chile's volcanoes, glacial lakes, and national parks get most of the attention here. Established in 1853, the port city has prospered primarily because of its salmon farming industry, with much of Puerto Montt having an industrial, working-class feel. You'll find a good set of places to eat in town, including some of the region's most popular restaurants. Still, the main attraction of Puerto Montt remains its convenient location close to the region's natural highlights. Puerto Montt is in Los Lagos Region.
