Scenic Drive · Beaches · Ski Areas
Perched on the eastern tip of Lake Lacar, laidback San Martin de los Andes feels in tune with the nature around it. Sitting at an elevation of 640 m (2,100 ft), the settlement of around 23,000 people retains its small-town atmosphere despite its potential for large-scale tourism and a growing number of visitors choosing to vacation in San Martin de los Andes. The surrounding mountains and the clear waters of the lake make a memorable backdrop and offer a range of outdoor activities, such as hiking, mountain climbing, and skiing. Tourism in San Martin de los Andes experiences two peak seasons--summer and winter.
