  • Nice and well organised.
  • They have all kind of reading material about Patagonia's history and stuff
  • The mere mention of the word Patagonia awakens great expectations in the sport fisherman. The succession of mirrors of water, rivers and streams in Bariloche, is part of its nature of great beauty. Excellent environments that meet the expectations of all angler, either in spinning, casting or trolling fly patterns. SEE MORE

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.
