San Juan acts as a more humble and provincial version of nearby Mendoza, with all the wineries and lush landscape, but less of the hustle, bustle, and international guests. Using its perceived secondary status to its advantage, San Juan's tourism appeal comes from its unpretentiousness and relative lack of concessions. That doesn't mean you'll be wanting for things to do in San Juan: highlights include nearby wineries and protected areas of wilderness, along with modern architecture, spas, and museums. Take a look at our Argentina trip itinerary site to refine the details of your trip to San Juan.

Where to stay in San Juan

Within Av. Circunvalacion sits the main bulk of San Juan's places to stay. Plush, modern high-rises tower over the central neighborhood, while older, more traditional hotels line the edges of the main urban parks and plazas. Budget-friendly options come in the form of unassuming, converted residential blocks and rental apartments. If you head outside of the ring road, you'll have a choice between relaxing lodgings on the estates of local wineries, and a good selection of back-to-basics campgrounds.
