I loved this reservation but it's better to visit it on your own so you can get to walk it through and through. Guided tours are too short. It features an old Norman style hotel, which was looted by the 1976 military Junta so you...More

I you can, by all means rent a car. It need not be a 4x4; just make sure that it has good clearance and a good engine. You will be climbing mightily. After leaving Mendoza to the North (this it the only time where it...More

I loved the scenery. Being close to wildlife representatives is the best (I've been just meters away from a grey fox!). I hated not being able to spend more time in every spot (the drawback of being part of a tour group). It's worth taking...More

Basically, this is a ruins of a hotel/spa. The famous Villavicencio water bubbles up from a spring. Take a few empty bottles to fill and you'll have sweet water to drink for the rest of your trip.

This is a very nice and interesting ride going up the Andes... Views are very interesting... The roads are tricky and I would never drive it by myself... A tour is the only way to do it.. Some of the views are outstanding
