Chaitén & Termas Amarillo

The town of Chaiten lies along the coast of Chile opposite the Island of Chiloe. In 2008 the long dormant Chaiten Volcano erupted causing widespread damage to Chaiten. The town is almost fully recovered now and has become a fascinating place to visit for tourists. Some of the main attractions are hiking to the summit of the volcano, visiting the ruins on the south side of town or going to the Amarillo Hot Springs.
