Esquel

4.1
Although Welsh immigrants arrived in this area in the mid-19th century, Esquel was officially founded in 1906, which makes it a relatively young city by world standards. Despite the town's lack of impressive history and stunning architecture, a trip to Esquel takes visitors to a pleasant area in Argentine Patagonia dominated by the foothills of several major mountain ranges. Camping and hiking are among the tops things to do in Esquel, which serves as a good base for exploring the nearby national park and taking trips on a narrow-gauge train, said to represent the world's southernmost railway line. Esquel is in Province of Chubut. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: Esquel and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Esquel

Some of Esquel's most affordable lodgings are basic hostels located quite a distance from the main bus terminal, which may not work for visitors without their own transportation. To stay closer to the city center, consider a mid-range hotel with a good selection of modern amenities. The local tourism office can also provide you with a list of rental cabins and apartments in the surrounding area, ideal for tourists interested in skiing, hiking, or exploring the nearby national park.
