Great Alternative to Bariloche

08/09/2011
Even though San Martin de los Andes is an affluent resort town, the culture is very laid back and not at all uppity. The town features beautiful old school Swiss architecture as well as more modern alpine wooden buildings. The town is rather pretty and thankfully the height of the buildings is regulated, so it’s not likely to see any ugly high rise developments.

Other pros of San Martin de los Andes include the fantastic restaurants, the nice après scene, and the interesting shopping. It is a beautiful town, but one con is that only a tiny part of town sits on the lake, and the town doesn’t have the majestic lake views seen in other Lakes District towns.

It is a well developed town that caters well to tourists, but it is more refined than Bariloche and doesn’t have the associated underbelly. It’s still a touristy town, but it’s not crazy like Bariloche. See our video here
