  • Colony "works" Sundays and Wednesdays only in terms of the main activities, craftsmen and curanto. The rest of the days can be found for a meal or a beer. The city should implement more you transportation to and from the colony since only happens every 1 hour collective 1 almost and always ends up burst of people.

  • Sunday 11:30 HR, day services, all the posts there are in theory... closed public baths... a vergueza. There are places to eat to 10% more cheap that bariloche, but is compensates with the trip. It's not worth it.

  • I can not comment of the restaurant. I went with the intention of buying fresh trout live in origin thinking I was going to get a consistent price and quite the opposite. In the hatchery trout costs 100% more face than any fish of Bariloche.
