  • 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!

  • Villavicencio a magical place removed from a Swiss postcard / German, wonderful in the heart of the mountain... surprise effect, do not expect what you will find! A heritage of us all, a place that you can not see our wonderful Argentina! Steeped in history, super friendly guides, extraordinary landscapes, facilities very good thinker to receive tourists. Excellent value: price quality service!
