We were in San Martin in the summer and made the mistake of driving up the dust road all the way from the town, rather than driving back along the road towards Villa La Angostura. The view in the evening is HUGE and I got...More

It is unfortunate to have tourists taken for fools. We had payed the full weekly fare, and expected to good receive adequate service for a full Chapelco experience and received only 20% of it. My family, kids and friends arrived to Cerro Chapelco on Sunday...More
