San Martin de los Andes

Scenic Drive Beaches Winter Sports
Perched on the eastern tip of Lake Lacar, laidback San Martin de los Andes feels in tune with the nature around it. Sitting at an elevation of 640 m (2,100 ft), the settlement of around 23,000 people retains its small-town atmosphere despite its potential for large-scale tourism and a growing number of visitors choosing to vacation in San Martin de los Andes. The surrounding mountains and the clear waters of the lake make a memorable backdrop and offer a range of outdoor activities, such as hiking, mountain climbing, and skiing. Tourism in San Martin de los Andes experiences two peak seasons--summer and winter. Customize your holiday with our Argentina vacation generator to create an adventure that suits you.

Where to stay in San Martin de los Andes

Only a small portion of San Martin de los Andes actually touches Lake Lacar, but it's there that most of the best accommodations can be found. Cozy ski chalets and lodges make up the majority of places to stay here, although a few budget hostels offer something for travelers with limited means. During peak times, the town center can get quite noisy at night. Stay a few minutes out of town for a quieter experience with memorable views.
