  • When we arrived in collective at Cologne Switzerland we find a fair of crafts etc very nothing very special style of the coast Argentina (type Carilo or Mar de las Pampas). Apart from that around you got hills and a beach where the view is beautiful. You would never go.

  • Nice place to stroll with the family, eating typical meals and try artisanal ales. (I recommend the Lamb Burger and the hot dog with sauerkraut)... In addition the days Wednesdays and Sundays the craft fair can be found.

Best things to do in San Carlos de Bariloche

Where to stay in San Carlos de Bariloche

Despite an abundance of economical lodgings, most budget-friendly options in Bariloche get fully booked well before the start of peak season. Hotels charge the highest rates during popular ski months (July and August), when you're least likely to find a cozy room without a reservation. Mid-range hotels near the town center remain the best option for most tourists, offering car rental and tour arrangements along with the usual amenities like free Wi-Fi, cable TV, and laundry service.
