San Rafael Weekend Get-Away
Just 240 kilometers (150 miles) from Mendoza, San Rafael is an accessible retreat, offering just enough to keep you happily busy for the weekend. Cradled in rich natural beauty, this peaceful town has attracted both a thriving tourism industry and a resident population of artists, poets, and musicians. San Rafael serves as an excellent setting out point for visiting more rural destinations, such as Malargue, home to the Fiesta Nacional de Chivo, an entire celebration dedicated to grilling goat meat. Other popular day excursions include horseback riding into the Canon del Atuel and rafting trips in Valle Grande. A tour group or rental car is your best option to see the spread out sights; or at a more economical rate, you can take the bus from El Terminal de Omnibus.
