Where the Río Negro and the Río Peulla empty into Lago Todos los Santos, 20 nautical miles east of Petrohué, the hamlet of Peulla traditionally earns its livelihood from tourist traffic that patronizes Hotel Peulla and its restaurant, whether overnight, on day excursions from Petrohué, or en route to Bariloche; there is also a new hotel to supplement the Peulla. Chilean customs and immigration is only a short distance east of here.
Day-trippers and through travelers have time enough to walk to Cascada de Los Novios, a waterfall just a few minutes from Hotel Peulla. Only overnighters will have time for the eight-kilometer climb of the Sendero Laguna Margarita.
