  • The hike offered by the reserve experience is very gratifying, even had the good fortune of running into us from afar a guanaco, in addition to the warmth and great knowledge of the guides. All highly recommended services!

  • Except the place of entry for eating or snacking (that charge you cute good things) to the rest of the book lacks infrastructure, signage... the Telegraph was a "casita" stone type cabin all full of graffiti; the rest of the reserve "BBS" missing signage. I did not like or recommend... has some beautiful places but nothing more... and over you charge!

  • Beautiful view.
  • Beautiful place. Indescribable with words. Spring day, in the morning, cloud, fog and clouds covering the peaks. Road with curves and curves towards the hot springs with lush vegetation, wet by morning drizzle, against silence total, suddenly truncated by the howl of a Fox hiding in some space that mysterious and spectacular place. Pure nostalgia. Film. Simply beautiful... October 2014.

  • Nice place, an entry charge to visit two places and it is absolutely worthwhile. After the visit to the hotel and the Chapel, it is recommended to upload to the viewpoints of the Hill, there, the view is wonderful. Take bottles to bring mineral water flowing naturally from the hill that is the same as one takes as a. It is recommended esacuchar the silence...

  • I found a very nice place to learn, which is between the mountains. A guide there are every half an hour explaining the history of the site. I hope that soon they remodel the hotel so enable it for the visit of the public
