Los Penitentes Travel Guide
Shopping There isn't the largest variety of shopping in Los Penitentes and travellers looking to splurge will do better in the nearby city of Mendoza. There are, however, a few small shops selling souvenirs, sporting goods and the like, and the local shopping centre is a good place to indulge in some retail therapy.
Restaurants Los Penitentes offers plenty of eateries for foodies of all persuasions. Several restaurants offer great international cuisine and excellent value for money, while restaurants located on the mountain allow skiers take a much-needed break and enjoy a steaming cup of hot chocolate.
Nightlife There is not much nightlife in Los Penitentes, but a few hotels offer occasional shows and disco nights, while a few pubs and bars are dotted around the resort. Young travellers looking for a night of partying and drinking best head to one of Argentina's other ski resorts.
Activities Skiing and snowboarding are the order of the day at Los Penitentes, while the Snow and Sled Park is great for those wanting to try their hand at tricks and rails, and the tubing park provides another option for skiers.
Negatives Los Penitentes is fairly quiet. Travellers looking for wild nightlife should look to other ski resorts in Argentina for a more lively holiday.
