Esquel

(4.5/5 based on 1,600+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: nature, sightseeing, adventure
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. Whether you only want to go to Esquel, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Argentina trip generator.

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.
