San Rafael

With its idyllic tree-lined streets, San Rafael provides a tranquil setting for relaxation in the heart of Argentina. Most San Rafael itineraries include walks along the Diamante River and tours of the area's vineyards, which produce some of the country's finest wines. Though the town itself offers little in the way of modern tourist attractions, a San Rafael holiday might venture out to the nearby Lake Los Reyunos, a popular canoeing and windsurfing destination. Alternatively, you can while away a few pleasant days in this quiet provincial town, wandering the shady streets and visiting tiny cafes. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: San Rafael and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in San Rafael
