Playa Quila Quina, San Martin de los Andes

(4.4/5 based on 1,400 reviews on the web)
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. Our San Martin de los Andes vacation planner makes visiting Playa Quila Quina and other San Martin de los Andes attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This day has been challenging. The route is amazing with great estradões, trails, asphalt, dirt and dust, winds, a Grove and the day we cycled, a lot of rain. But the landscape is beautiful, the roads and trails are challenging and the arrival on the beach there is a descent to take breath.

  • Beautiful place Quila Quina, you can get in auto or in boat collective (sale 300 ida and turned) you can pay with card of credit out of the dock of the Lake lacar. you got a hostel to eat or take your food as we did. don't forget to rent a kayak to navigate the waters of beautiful turquoise! Very funny. accompany you while ducks you these at the Lake. you have places of shadow if it is hot. DO NOT LET GO.

  • They charge entrance to the Park, Argentines not San Martin residents pay $90 going by car. It is a beautiful beach with good view of the mountains and a half restaurant hair. I recommend to bring food, you can much be filled with people. You can rent chairs, tables, kayak, and others. Have access to bathrooms public clean
