Costanera Alvear, the southern beach of Mendoza

In the department of General Alvear was inaugurated Costanera Alvear, the southern beach of Mendoza. Families and friends enjoy the Atuel river.


To Mendoza, the Atlantic beach is  1,200 kilometers away.  That is why we have ventured, in recent years, in the realization and refurbishment of rivers or dikes beaches. Thus was born Playita de Luján, on the  Mendoza River  and  El Carrizal Beach,  on the shores of the dam that bears his name. However, all this is concentrated in northern Mendoza. But, now, the south did not want to be left behind and left inaugurated, for locals and tourists, the Costanera Alvear.

It is located on the banks of the Atuel River. Pospnademia reopened  its doors and received many visits on its first weekend of operation. Beach, river, drinks, zipline, music and quinchos are offered to guests. La Costanera Alvear can be visited from Monday to Thursday from 14:00 to 20:00, Friday from 14:00 to 01:00 in the morning; on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 11:00 to 21:00.

Admission to the beach has a  cost of $50 per person and children under 10 years old do not pay . Also works the old car with a wide variety of drinks and drinks, as a food truck. Besides, every Friday there will be shows.  You can also enjoy ziplining, sports, recreation,   kayaking  and good music. But all taking into account health care, with protocols and regulations in force regarding coronavirus. The place is located 8 kilometers south of the head villa of the department.

The site is meant to be a success, as its predecessors have turned out.  Luján Beach has become a classic of the Mendoza summer, for several years now. While the beach of El Carrizal, in great demand, although with some complaints about the color of the water in the piletones. However, the problem was quickly solved.In this case, the Atuel River is the most revered and cared for by the Alvearenses,  and that is why the neighbors celebrated this initiative, as it is a part of sharing something, first person, with nature.

The department, months ago, has been working on protocols to build trust in the midst of the pandemic.  There are more than 1,100 beds available, especially in the family unit, of which 80 percent are located in cabins.  It is also important to mention the option of rural tourism in the South department, with contact with nature. You can enjoy the outdoors, visit the wineries and  olive groves.  Being, most places, cared for by their own owners. In this area of Mendoza there is a great mix of immigrants that bring to history and flavors. In addition, there are multiple activities on the Atuel River. And the possibility to get to know General Alvear and  the South departments “from the sky”, with trips offered from the airclub. 

Definitely, we are facing a new mendocino tourist center that is not very visited by outsiders but that, due to new initiatives and attractions, will be increasingly frequented.
