Our city´s privileged natural setting, surrounded by Lanín National Park and its enchanting tourist circuits, and the warmth of our people, all add to the complete service facilities that will meet the demands of anyone who chooses our place for their vacations. 

Our young mountain city, placed in the midst of the Andes and on the coast of Lacar Lake has turned into the main tourist destination in the Province of Neuquén due to its permanent growth.

At 640 meters above sea level, it is located in the Wet Patagonian Andes, featuring mountains covered by dense native woods, crystal water streams and huge biodiversity, which all in all contributes to its high environmental quality.
