Playa Quila Quina, San Martin de los Andes

4.4
#1 of 13 in Parks in San Martin de los Andes
Swim in an iconic Patagonian setting at Playa Quila Quina, located on the southern shores of Lake Lacar. Expect a sizeable crowd here, as ferries bring batches of tourists from San Martin several times a day, and many others arrive by car. Look for a small track branching off from the beach, which will lead you through the trees to Arroyo Grande, a nearby waterfall where you can escape the crowds.

    Be there perhaps enable those responsible, the owner, have at times, sometimes not... the quality varies. There are times that it is excellent, there are times that leave much to be desired, but you stay contemplating the landscape paradise and suddenly "is everything"... but the food itself is not. Prosciutto with fat. Salads that surprise you for the good, but that a main ingredient is wrong and ruin it... anyway... depends... on is luck. Does not fail: the landscape of which the consecionados take advantage to not give you a service commensurate with the. > I always go. summer and winter. However the above: is my weakness that deck... that place...

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.
