  • San Martin de los Andes is one of the most picturesque cities of Argentine Patagonia. The surrounding hills and the Lake offer some amazing viewpoints to admire the natural surroundings and the urban architecture of this beautiful village. One of the most emblematic and much visited is the Mirador Arrayán, which offers one of the best postcards of Lake Lácar and San Martin de los Andes. The path can be done from the beach, walking, by bike or by car/taxi. The road is very steep, unpaved and surrounded by cypress trees. After a short time of bubbling Lake will begin to appear between the trees. The Observatory is a modern, well signposted and accessible, even for those with mobility problems. The panoramic view is simply stunning, set between the reflecting pool, the pier, the ships and the town down there, contrasts with the mount Bandurrias and your forest in front of us.

  • This difficult Middle route to reach there but once you get the view is beautiful. No doubt it is highly recommended to take pictures and see all San Martin from the top.

  • Great panoramic views of the lake and San Martin de Los Andes. Easy accesible by car, approx 4km from the exit of the town. Don't miss the sign on the right in a big left turn. Hint : after the Mirador continue 500m to find la "Casa de te"! Check it out on g maps.
  • Excellent view of the Lakar Lake and San Martín de los Andes

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.
