We drove to mirador de bandurrias for a short family outing, then walked to las islitas. The walk is easy for all ages and the air is really pure... the destinations really worth it!

A short hike uphill brings you to spots were you have a beautiful view on San Martin and Lago Lacar. If you don’t want to walk: you can go up by car/bus.

Nice place to trekking in the middle of the forest and contemplate San Martin de los Andes and the Lake Lacar. There is a Mapuche´s community there!
