  • We did the tour of the Lake Nacre, hired in a tourist agency from the city centre. The ride out and back around 12:30 8:00 pm, are 4 charts and maia pretty in my opinion was the Chachin cascade. The walk was moderate, some climbs that tired, but all very well signposted, with stairs, easy to reach. Great hike in the midst of nature, with sound of the river. Our tour guide was excellent, explained everything very well. The other stops were:-Quila Quina, for lunch and relax, beautiful environment, with ducklings, nature, standing in Santa Terezinha baby Jesus, take a walk to get to the chapel in the Woods and Hua-Hum, border with Chile, beautiful place to enjoy a natu Reza, Green Water and mountain views.

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.
