  • The book is a place very beautiful, but simply is another visit more to do an excursion and take you money, not is something so extraordinary or that not would see in other side. The famous House of mineral water bottles is in complete abandonment and the only thing they did was put some posters and a few plotters of advertising so you know that it's the same, but its State is unfortunate. You can breathe pure air, you can walk, all in the open air, I repeat is very cute, but not the lovey-dovey, somewhere or fu or fa. The chapel may seem you extraordinary to someone who is an unbeliever, for my da same thing. And hose that supposedly comes out the same mineral of the bottles water, is as a very little thing, if water is so important and gives it a particular place attraction, it seems silly that a simple hose, as that you use for washing the car or the sidewalk of your home, a water fountain would have been more worthy. In short, if you don't make the trip not to lose much.

  • More recommended visiting the reserve, there are two ways to access it, one is by the a tour of high mountain which I have descent and the other is by Av. San Martín, allowing you to turn by Centre le and then go to the reserve. My visit was in winter and the view was really incredible, income has a minimum cost of $60 but worth it completely, bring food and drink (because it there but it is surprisingly expensive) all over the place was prepared by the same landscape architect who designed the Bosques de Palermo in Buenos Aires, is a surreal landscape that one does not expect to find , since Mendoza by its height has little vegetation, here will find an amazing combination of ferns, pine trees and trees surrounded by parks and fountains in the middle of the mountain. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • Inciamos the tour of uspallata, through the RN52. Road gravel and saws that allows crossing the Andean foothills on trails of snails... incredible views, with animals wild 58 km of pure adrenaline for travel in 2 hours. At his point more high ae reach almost 3000 mts of height. Super recommended. There are no Inns, baths, or supply throughout the tour. Ten years ago the walked from villavicencio to uspallata but recommend this circuit because the views are better down than up.
