  • It is a place absolutely incredible, wonderful, worthy of visit, should be more economic for Argentines, since the values of all the activities are quite expensive.

  • Placid navigation. Enjoyable from the moment of entering the boat. Impeccable guides and, obviously, the photographers on Board (aren't cheap photos) are artists capturing expressions and landscapes.
