Lots of outdoor pursuits are on offer in this region. You can tackle many on your own. For hiking guides, rappeling, horseback riding and other tours, stop in to the offices of the agencies conveniently located on Av San Martín.


There's a range of decent-value cabañas and hotel rooms in this tourist town, though prices spike in the summer and on long weekends when you'll need to book ahead. The tourist office has an extensive list of cabañas, some of which are only convenient if you're arriving in your own rental car.


Some restaurants close one or more days per week outside the December to March summer months. Self-caterers will find supermarkets and artisanal food shops on the main street.


The town is divided into two sections by Río Sauce Grande. The main street, Av San Martín, lies south of the river, as do the bus and train stops and most other services.
