  • Cute and historic place to visit. It is not a must-see. You can walk and rein in picnicking.

  • Beautiful park with plenty of room ... impossible to meet him on foot, rent a bike if you want to go through a major part of the Park.

  • Worth it, there are several attractions, the Park has a Lake, the zoo that will be an eco-Center and games for boys, shame is in reconstruction and now can not see. Breathtaking view of the mountains.

  • Beautiful walkways and well maintained. Lots of people walking, biking, jogging, or just enjoying the lazy pace within the park. Very safe during daylight hours.
  • Excellent for picnic day, trainning, etc., there is a beautiful golf course, a few minutes away from downtown, i totally recommend this place if you are looking for breathable clean air
  • San Martin Park is the largest park in the southern hemisphere, it boasts colleges, museum, lake, restaurants, stadium and and sports clubs.
  • Outstanding park with many landscapes and perfect for picnic or running
  • Great park. So green in the middle of the dessert.

Where to stay in Mendoza

As the center of Argentina's wine industry, Mendoza offers plenty of conventional hostel and hotel options, as well as a good selection of short-term apartments for rent. Visitors taking language courses or spending several weeks on the wine route usually snatch these early in the tourist season (which lasts from mid-December to late-February), so it's a good idea to do some research and contact the owners before you arrive. Keep in mind that some of the town's hostels only offer beds to guests signed up for their wine tours.
