#1 of 6 in Beaches in Province of Neuquen
Swim in an iconic Patagonian setting at Playa Quila Quina, located on the southern shores of Lake Lacar. Expect a sizeable crowd here, as ferries bring batches of tourists from San Martin several times a day, and many others arrive by car. Look for a small track branching off from the beach, which will lead you through the trees to Arroyo Grande, a nearby waterfall where you can escape the crowds.
