  • Very nice place, going by route 52 is located the book. First go to the visitor center where children older than 12 years are paid $110 per adult and $80. In this place you can see a video that tells the story of the reserve and has access to a few trails. Then 1 km more along the hotel (in restoration) where I recommend that they participate in talk that gives one the Rangers where the story of the hotel is located.

  • The venue is cute although the first part of the Museum is a little abandoned. The rest is very good, interesting history. Visit close to the thermal baths of Villavicencio Hotel transports you to the past thanks to the story of the guides. It is not a place to waste. Also has a restaurant that serve delicious food and all the staff is good. Bring empty bottles to collect natural water direct mountain (is rich!).

  • The truth that expected more. The place is cute and looks very green. The hotel looks outside and they are fixing it. But it seemed to me that the area is very abandoned and while you charge (which is fine with me) do not give you anything in return. At least one bottle empties water Villavicencio and there one fills with water from the hose. Is a long road and one hopes a ride with a little more than wave.
