Happy Birthday in San Martin

A travel blog entry by dananddana


Three hour bus ride to San Martin, we arrived to cloudy skies and empty stomachs. Found our way to the hostel, not so stoked on the accommodations at Rukalhue. You win some you loose some, this one was clearly a loss. O-well, off to see the town.

Our impression was San Martin is the travel destination for the local outdoor enthusiast: …

Relaxation in the Lake District

A travel blog entry by erinj


... we sorted out our transport to El Chalten for a reasonable amount of time and money. After that we were able to enjoy the rest of the day, seeing more of the surrounding lakes and mountains. As the bus pulled away from the town we didn't want to leave San Martín, but we did enjoy beautiful views of the lake with the mountains behind. Our time in Argentina's Lake District drawing to a close, we headed out on route 40 towards ...

Chocolate heaven with some pretty good views!

A travel blog entry by nadinehanlon

This is a top pick!

... buying one big slab of solid chocolate which I know I would enjoy just as much, so during our quick tour of the shopping street me and Peter ducked in and out of the chocolate shops trying the freebies instead! It´s pretty good chocolate.. maybe not the best in the World but definitely good for South American standards! (Needless to say my favourite was the one with a thick layer of dulce de leche in the middle, haha!)

... the grilled trout, which was covered with ham (which they carved fresh from the leg in front of us as they were preparing it) and roasted garlic, and accompanied with similar roasted potatoes and sautéed vegies (it was delicious, but see why I would suggest a plate-sharing?). To accentuate our dinner we had also ordered a bottle of a local Malbec (Saurus), which had hints of plums, and a pleasant velvety finish that worked for the ceviche, the grilled ...

    The hostel was clean and and the staff was helpful. It was exactly what you would expect from a good hostel, but breakfast and dinner was included in the price of a dorm room. An excellent value for cost. We aren't sure if that is just during the high and mid season, but definitely worth considering if you are headed there.
