We are a family of 6. When our children were young, we spent many years living in Argentina and traveling extensively throughout Latin America. We returned three years ago to New England as our children prepared for their american college experience. We continue to travel a ton including spending our Christmas holidays at our beautiful home in northern Patagonia. Our house was built for a family with kids of all ages. Kid and Coe is a great way to share our home with an adventurous family.

Fly fishing and family adventures

This Patagonian village in the Neuquen Province, midway down Argentina near the border with Chile, has street signs shaped like fish and is famed for its fly fishing. As part of Argentina’s Lake District, bird watching, hiking, boating, horseback riding and walks up the extinct Lanín volcano are just some of the local attractions. Family adventures are most certainly the flavor of the day.
