I loved it, they have it all, the perfect views, rooms, food, hotel service...I know it is rather pricy but they have specials and discounts so do not doubt it. I will be back soon!!!

This is approached by a short but rough road. It is a nice view of an old bridge and this very short "river" connecting the two lakes. We took a peep as it was recommended to us, but against the other outstanding views on the Seven Lakes Drive, it doesn't compare.

Rio Correntoso is located in Villa La Angostura (Argentina) and is the effluent of Lago Correntoso (27 km2) into the Nahuel Huapi Lake (557 km2) with only 200-300 meters longitude. It is not easy to find because is down the highway and very short. I recommend stopping especially if you are doing "The Seven Lakes" drive. Great spot for fly... More

We walked along the shore from our hotel to get here. The journey was better than the destination. Ran into a group of teenage girls from Mendoza who treated my 18 year old son like a rock star. Met a dog as well that followed us for a bit then saw him in town again later that evening. Treated the... More

This is a must visit. Not properly shown on the highway if driving you need directions. The short river connects lake Correntoso to Nahuel Huapi. The view is spectacular. Don't miss it.

It took us forever to find this small river- mainly because they were doing construction on the road you take to go down to see it- the road is not labeled so its easy to miss it- it is possible that they will add a sign. To find it- leave Villa la Angostura going north and the road is on... More

The Rio Correntoso is a beautiful spot. Walk over the high road bridge for good views then go down to the white bridge below for another outlook. The water is crystal clear and fast flowing. Really stunning.
