|Transportation Information and How to Get to Lago Budi|
|Lago Budi, Boca Budi, and Puerto Saavedra|
The closest major communities to the lake are Puerto Saavedra and Boca Budi. They are the jumping off points to the lake, and have the most tourist infrastructure. The hard top road turns to dirt road in Puerto Saavedra. The dirt road to the town of Boca Budi, just 2 km up the hill from Puerto Saavedra, is in excellent condition and buses run about every 30 min. Direct access to the Lake is either via a dirt road that splits from the road between Puerto Saavedra and Boca Budi (about 1 KM), or from a longer dirt road that passes through Carahue (about 30 km). The Boca Budi road is the fastest and recommended route to Lake Budi.
There several buses from Temuco a day, including direct buses from the rural terminal (Please see our Temuco section for details). You can also take the smaller rural micros, but you will have to change buses in Nueva Imperial and again Carahue, but are worth the stops for at least lunch and a good look around. No matter how big a hurry you are in, the price is the same.
To get to the lake and town of Boca Budi, the Boca Budi resort provides a micro that runs about every 30 mins as a service to the community and transportation for visitors. There is also one other private micro that services the Boca Budi resort, and the lake in particular.
