Accommodations and Food
La Ligua has inexpensive but pleasing lodgings at Residencial Regine II (Condell 360, tel. 033/711196, US$12 pp with private bath).

Rates include breakfast, cable TV, and parking.
Lihuén (Ortiz de Rosas 303, tel. 033/711143) offers snacks, sandwiches, and homemade ice cream, and more elaborate meals in its more formal restaurant next door. Costa Brava (Ortiz de Rozas s/n), half a block west of the Plaza de Armas, is a seafood specialist.
