A new hotel only 4 years old overlooks the lake and mountains. Photos cannot do justice to the breathtaking views!!! The rooms are on the small side, typical for Argentina, but the amazing views from the floor to ceililng windows opens up the vista so that you feel you are actually on the lake. The staff is very gracious and helpful, but the continental breakfast is limited with no fresh fruit. We bought our own fruit from a supermarket on the way to town. A lovely spa with sauna, hydrojetted therapy shower, and a heated indoor-outdoor pool makes a lovely respite after a day of hiking the mountains and forests. It is difficult to hike on your own, except for Bosque de Arrayanes, which is a lovely, level 13 km (26 km round trip) hike in the forest along the lake. For other hikes, I recommend the services of an experienced guide who is absolutely excellent -- Dario Remorino. We have been to Angostura 4 times and have used him the last 3 times. He is knowledgeable not only about the flora and fauna but also about culture, history, philosophy, and nearly any other topic you may be interested in. He has authored a book on hiking. Dario has a heart of gold, and we have come to consider him (and his wife) as special friends. This time he took us on several hikes, but we were especially privileged to trek up a volcanic mountain where we were rewarded with amazing views of lakes and 10 volcanoes, including the one which erupted last June. The location of the hotel is about 2 km from town but there is a sidewalk all the way. A taxi to town costs about $4 (US). This little gem of a charming village right in the national park is our favorite place in all of Argentina and one of our favorites in the entire world.
