The Rio Dorado
Reviewed March 14, 2008

Over the past eight years, during our month long stays in Argentina, we have stayed in a number of excellent places in both Junin de los Andes, San Martin de los Andes, and other beautiful towns in Patagonia. Rio Dorado Lodge is one of the most outstanding. They have large, immaculately clean, and well appointed log built rooms, great beds, many amenities, and large well kept grounds along with a trout fish pond. Their gourmet breakfasts are excellent. The owners and their staff do everything possible to make your stay outstanding. In addition, the rooms and lodge are non-smoking. The area is quiet yet just a few minutes from Junin de los Andes. While their prices are slightly higher than other lodging in Junin they provide the best quality, service and value for the money.
While staying at the Rio Dorado Lodge we use the services of Flotadas Chimehuin run by Angel Fontanazza and his family for guided fly fishing trips on the Malleo, Collon Cura, Alumine, and Chimehuin and nearby lakes. Flotadas Chimehuin is the best fly fishing guide service I have found in Patagonia. They have outstanding equipment, speak English, excellent food, reasonably priced, and a comprehensive knowledge of the best fishing rivers and lakes in the region.
If you enjoy fishing -- the Chimehuin River goes right though the town --, and outdoor activities I would recommend staying in Junin de los Andes rather than the touristy and larger San Martin de los Andes which is about 40 minutes from Junin. Stay in Junin close to the outdoor action and tranquility and then spend a evening in San Martin to do your shopping or a dinner in a different town.
