San Martin de los Andes is a small beautiful Alpine style town, located in a valley in the foothills of the Andes Mountain range and on the shore of Lacar Lake.
People compare this town with small ski villages in Switzerland, others say it just looks like Aspen 20 years ago.....
If you are willing to get to know a little bit more about our way of life and enjoy the warmth and hospitality of the locals, then lodging in our recommended cabin resorts, boutique hotels "hosterias", and dinning in our local favorite restaurants will be a great choice for you!
Several public access waters are available as daily fishing programs, all are a 40 minutes to 2 hours drive. With this option you will find regular wade fishing days to rivers like the Malleo, Chimehuin, Quilquihue, Meliquina, Caleufu, etc, also the chance to do float trips to different sections of Alumine, Collon Cura and Chimehuin rivers.
If you like sight fly fishing for big cruising rainbows and browns, some of the nearby lakes offer amazing fishing opportunities. The use of motorboats is limited to some lakes inside the National Park so some of the best fisheries can be accesed by float tubes, which we provide.
