Located at the meeting point of the Neuquén and Limay rivers, Neuquén is the largest city in the Patagonia region of Argentina. While it has been a transportation hub, it has also developed into an important paleontological region. The nearby vineyards are excellent and not as well-known as other regions in Argentina. Take the road less traveled and book your flight to Neuquén with LATAM for a friendly and unique experience.
