Welcome to San Juan


No slouch on the wine-production front, San Juan’s wineries are refreshingly low-key compared to the Mendoza bustle, and the province’s other attractions are all within easy reach of the capital. Most come here en route to Parque Provincial Ischigualasto. Driving only a short distance north of town, you'll notice the dusty clouds produced by large-scale mining. To the south, just off RN 40, there are six olive-oil producers.

The city goes dead in summer, especially on Sunday, when all of San Juan heads to the nearby shores of Dique Ullum for relief from the sun.
