After our trip to Mendoza, Argentina, we went to Patagonia.

Yes, guys, Patagonia will always top my favorites, and I recommend that you include it on your bucket list.

Why Rio Hermoso La Montana Hotel is the best Accommodation in San Martin de Los Andes PatagoniaWe went to San Martin de Los Andes which is a town in the northwest Patagonia. Located on the banks of Lácar Lake, you can definitely say that it’s a paradise! It is a destination where you can forget all the hustle and bustle of the city.
