Visit the reservoir at Potrerillos Dam for a bit of outdoor adventure. Take some time and rent a kayak, wind board, or small boat to explore the water. You have plenty of options for water sports in the area, but keep in mind that motors are not allowed. You can swim here, so consider a dip to admire the views of the mountains from within the emerald waters. Bring some food to take advantage of the barbecue pits along the reservoir. Alternatively, try to catch your meal at the fishing spots.

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.
