San Martin de los Andes is a nice quiet little town between the Andes and the Lacar lake. It has that swiss style on its constructions, and the people that live there are very friendly. It's an outdoor town, where mountain biking, skiing and hiking are a must.
It's definately one of Argentina's must see. It's where the 7-lake route starts, one of the most impressive and most beautiful roads there are in Argentina.
So if you like snowy mountains, beautiful lakes, and pure air, come to San Martin, you won't regret it.

    Snowy mountains, beautiful lakes, and pure air......what's not to like?!! Great info on this beautiful town. Looks kinda like Lake Tahoe (of South America!) ;-)
