  • This National Park is characterized by the presence of cacti as we call them all familiarly, although there are many varieties, there are everywhere, far and wide, and is where lost sight, thousands and thousands of them, as if they were giants in their individuality. Is enter by route provincial 33 that is the same of the costs of the Bishop and within the Park is located the famous route Inca "straight of the tin tin" of which will comment by separate. One can stop by the side of the road and observe this immensity calm with its "inhabitants" the cactus and not I enter in details because you have to see it to understand, but if are already aimed to Cachi or the reverse range from Cachi unveiled the Cuesta del Obispo, then detenganse a few minutes to observe this unique and unspoiled beauty. Not be charged entrance to enter to the Park.

  • Who was in Argentina and is not even driven from Salta to cache, has missed something, because then he is not driven by the Parque Nacional Los Cardones. A surreal landscape, the same his looks. You must necessarily enjoy the silence!

  • Muy lindo parque!!
  • Nice landscape to manage. We found the Park descending from the Quebrada de Escopie heading towards Cachi, this way is beautiful to handle, crossing the line of Tin Tin with countless number of cacti on both sides of the route.
