Playa Catritre, San Martin de los Andes

(3.5/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Relax on the shores of Playa Catritre, a lakeside beach close to the Patagonian town of San Martín de los Andes. You can reach the beach via bicycle from San Martín, although the hilly path might be more tiring than you'd anticipated. If you're feeling brave, take a dip in the lake's chilly waters. For a refreshing evening under the stars, bring your tent and stay overnight at the beach's campsite. Expect large crowds during summer, when people stay until the sunset at around 8 pm. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Playa Catritre by using our San Martin de los Andes vacation builder.
