Lucía V's City Tips

  • The easiest way to get around is by car. There are multiple rent-a-car agencies in town.
  • By bus: You'll need a "tarjeta de aproximación" (electronic card) which is sold in the offices of the companies that manage the buses and in different shops around town.
  • The city government website offers detailed information on the bus system and where to buy tickets.
  • For more information, visit the tourist information office at the Centro Cívico or Bariloche's tourism website.

    As one of the most renowned chocolatiers in Bariloche, Mamuschka is not to be missed. Wrapped in beautiful red tins and boxes, and guarded by the iconic Russian dolls that give the brand its name, these delicious handcrafted chocolates and sweets will become your absolute favorites after just one bite.

    Built upon a family tradition of producing only the best handcrafted chocolates, Rapa Nui was founded by the son of an Italian immigrant, whose children still run the business to this day. Following this legacy, the store offers the most amazing creations, like chocolate truffles, bonbons and pure chocolate bars.

    Founded by the Goye family, who emigrated from Switzerland in the 19th century, Abuela Goye is a classic restaurant of Bariloche. The store is flanked by the image of the brand: the iconic 'abuela Goye' and inside is a world of chocolate delicacies of every shape and size. There's something here for every type of sweet tooth.

    • Personal favorite: a Bariloche invention, the "chocolate en rama" (made by spreading the chocolate on a marble surface, letting it cool and then scraping it off with a spatula so that the finished product ends up resembling the texture of a tree branch).
    • The store also offers cakes, ice cream, jams, and the classic Argentine "alfajores."

Each intricate design is handpainted onto plates, saucers, bowls or cups at their factory, which has been located at the same address since 1948.
