  • We met together with "Footprints", the resort's restaurant, traversed by the River in search of gold and gold-mine abandoned under the Hill Tomolasta. I recommend strongly to learn this picturesque mining town of yesteryear (Carolina), San Luis, which is about 80 kms. Potrero de los Funes. It's very nice to be able to take pictures and walk its streets on foot. "Then contacted with ' footprints ', which organize excursions and entertainment. It is nice to eat something in the restaurant having armed for tourism. I recommend the full loin sandwichs leaving rich and abundant at good price. Then climb into the galleries of the abandoned gold mine walk near the river colorado by the color of its waters and as a grand finale. The company provides drivers, helmet and headlight to traverse as well as a service of guides with good instruction and provision. To play for a while to be mining and understand how it works in these areas. Very nice!

  • Very good experience for which we are interested to know the nature and the history of our country! The guides are very friendly and strive to convey the feeling and the customs of miners. The guided tour has an affordable price. At the end don't miss to try good empanadas which served in the restaurant is next to the office that it organizes visits to the mine, also sold a few delicious chocolates, at very reasonable prices!
