Marina, Merlin's wife, met us as we arrived in El Chalten and took us to the apartment and familiarized us with its amenities. She also gave us recommendations for various hikes available on trails starting a short walk from the door. We found the apartment to be just as described and pictured. Although the bus stop and park visitor center are on the opposite side of town, we found the apartment perfectly situated. A grocery store, laundary and several restaurants are all within a short walk. Our five night stay flew by and it is hard to imagine spending any less time in El Chalten. We'd urge others to book at least that much time as the hikes are incredible and the changeable is such that it's nice to feel you have to push it on the worst days. Three of our five days offered good weather, two were okay, but not good enough to see much of the surrounding landscape. Merlin and Marina live right next door and are readily available if anything is needed. Overall we felt as though we made the perfect choice in staying at Las Agachonas. We will recommend it highly to any of our friends interested in visiting this magical area.
