    A little dirty, especially the Lake. People Strip waste water and obviously there is no sufficient care by pair of authorities. The circuit is ideal for aerobic activities.

    A lake that was born from construction of a dike. Beautiful environments, although from the year 2015 road surrounding the Lake has begun to deteriorate, trash accumulated maintenance-free in their rides

Where to stay in Tandil

Thanks to Tandil's popularity as a weekend and holiday destination for domestic and international tourists alike, it features a wide array of accommodation options suitable for just about any budget. Downtown you'll find a number of larger-scale hotels and rental apartments that offer privacy, onsite dining, and fancier accoutrements catering to business travelers and tourists. In order to get out into nature, many visitors opt for "cabanas," traditional Argentine cabins in the surrounding countryside; bear in mind that these are rustic and charming but only practical if you have access to a car. Booking ahead of time in the summer high season is an absolute must in Tandil, as lodgings fill up fast.
