Playa Catritre, San Martin de los Andes

3.5
#6 of 25 in Outdoors in San Martin de los Andes
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.

  • One of several beaches, which you can visit at any time of the year. Even better if you do it in the summer to cool off in the Lake.

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.
