Renting an automatic car in Bariloche

by Pbobroff

We will be traveling to Bariloche in May and are having a difficult time
finding an agency that has automatic vehicles. If anyone knows of one, whether at the airport or just outside the airport that would be great. Otherwise,
since our hotel is 20 minutes from the center of town what would be the best
way to get around. Has anyone been to Aldebaran Hotel & Spa. Do you know of
an upscale hotel closer to town? Don't really need the spa but liked the
feel of the hotel. Any ideas would be most welcomed.

I had similar problem in East Europe - and found a very interesting solution which did work.

1) Look at Bariloche yellow papers and find NEW CAR DEALERSHIPS (not rental agencies!)
2) Call (SkyPe!!!) these agencies and ask, do they have cars to rent. In most cases they do and they won't mind to rent the cars to non-clients. And they often have automatic cars.

What is interesting - their prices are lower, too than of rental agencies.

Great idea - I will try that. In the meantime I was able to find one agency
that is local and had an automatic vehicle. If anyone else is looking, the name is Aba rent a car.

Travel Tips for San Carlos de Bariloche

Circuito Chico Drive

by TexasDave

This is an easy 43 mile trip that can be done in half day or less depending on how fast you drive and how long you spend at the lookout areas, etc. It takes you right past the entrance to Llao Llao, the original resort that opened up the whole Lake District.On your way back you can stop at Cerveceria Blest and get some locally brewed beer.

Quite a mouthful

by TheWanderingCamel

San Carlos de Bariloche takes its name from a Mapuche Indian word, Vuriloche, meaning "people from the other side" ( a reference to crossing from Chile)and from Carlos Wiederhol, a German from Chile who opened a small store here in 1895. He'd be surprised if he came back today. Following the gazetting of the town in 1902, immigrants from Alpine Europe - Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Italy- came to settle, bringing with them their distinctive style of architecture and much of their way of life. The outstanding beauty of the region and its suitability for a myriad of outdoor activities eventually led to tourism becoming it main raison d'etre however, and now Barliloche is the main hub of all-year-round tourism in the region.

The town itself hasn't a lot to offer but it's certainly worth a look around. The Centro Civico is built of local stone and wood with a striking and rather mediseval looking City Hall, gate, official buildings and clocktower - and a graffiti-splattered statue in the middle of the square. The tall steepled cathedral sits in a small park. Although the town sits right on the edge of Lake Nahuel Huapi , it almost seems to turn its back on the lake and is much more concerned with providing the tourists with as many ways to buy chocolate or a sweater as possible. Stray dogs are everywhere. Hotels and restaurants line the side streets - this is a tourist town pure and simple, and as such, it doesn't really seem to have either much character or a heart.

The town's environs may be dotted with beautiful private homes, there are swish apartment blocks and time shares wherever you look, but drive around the back streets on the outskirts of town and you'll soon see that not everyone lives in such style. Unemployment is very high. The workers who keep this tourist paradise clean and serviced are relegated to little better than slum living themselves and any downturn in the tourist industry is disastrous for them. There really is a worm in this particular beautiful apple.
