  • Lake Lacar is located at the beginning of the city of San Martin de los Andes. With almost 50 kms of extension and almost 600 meters deep, it is a lake formed when the glaciation is removed, consequently it is of glacial origin. Its beginning is San Martin, its end is the town of Hua Hum. Daily excursion catamarans depart (all day) that travel in its entirety, with sighting of the Quila Quina site, Cascachi waterfall - where you can do a hike on foot - and ending in the town of Hua Hum (augujero in the sky according to the local language). At the end of San martin has a large beach to enjoy the sunny days of summer. It is possible to hire rental kayaks, rowing boats or water bikes. Restaurants and food carts can be found in this area.
