President Mauricio Macri made the comments to reporters Thursday in Bariloche, a visit televised by several local stations.

The town in southern Argentina is known for its lakes and snow-covered mountains.

Macri said Obama would "spend a few days" in Bariloche, but didn't provide more details. A spokeswoman at the U.S. Embassy in Argentina declined comment. A spokeswoman in Argentina's Foreign Ministry said she couldn't immediately comment.

Obama's visit to Argentina is planned for March 23-24. It was not immediately clear if the trip to Bariloche would be a vacation or if the official visit would be extended a few days.
