  • Very nice place to spend the day with family. You serve very well and offer you a guided tour where you learn much about the geological formations in the area.

  • The place welcomes you in a restaurant, where you can eat different dishes. We ate a delicious empanadas. Children that attend the place are very friendly and excellent guides to explain the geological features of the place. To access the 2 waterfalls, are paid 120 pesos. 2 ways you can go. One can do alone, and the other is accompanied, since it includes the explanation field. Our guide was Matias, was really a pleasure listening to him. Without a doubt, one learns. You get to the bottom of the waterfall, is very cute the ride, the difficulty is low and travel is short.

  • Excellent walking and explanation. They are a few guides. The restaurant was occupied by training and we were offered a place in the kitchen. By God that rich homemade pizza and a delicious dark beer. Magical place and attention. Insurance come back to try the goat and make the wing walk another waterfall.
