No reservations! Rent and car a just drive down the coast?


My wife and I are considering simply renting a car and driving down the coast in search of cheap lodging for a few days. Is this safe? Should we expect it to be easy to find reasonably priced lodging on or near the beach this time of year? We have been trying to find an apartment in Palermo or Las Canitas the entire week, walking all over the place, searching the internet for hours per day, and just would like to get away for a few days. We were in Bariloche for 2 weeks and the wife says "I need sun!!"

Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.
