    Visit this place gives us the possibility of being in a unique place. Turn on the Secretary of tourism of the city of Malargüe must be ordered. The entry is through a (approximately 6 KM) road that the date is in relatively good condition. Within the cavern travel is not very long, but it takes time given that access to the various rooms is somewhat difficult. Although access is restricted for children under 6 years and adults older 65 years, do not recommend for kids under 12 or 13 years. It is not recommended for people who suffer from claustrophobia or have mobility problems. In addition, the number of people per group should not be of more than 6 (counting the Guide). Otherwise, it is likely that not everyone can hear the explanations (which are very interesting) to different formations can be seen. Unfortunately, only a part of the cave is accessible but definitely worthwhile.

    Excellent experience entering and moving within caves with rare mineral formations and eye-popping colors. The bad thing when outside there is much wind you get and move becomes very difficult to go with children

    We hire the tour with Karen Travel (Santiago face was our Guide). The road to cavemen crazy, beautiful where you look. The excursion inside the cavern is carried out in an organized way, since it enters a group at the same time. The guide was excellent, told us many stories, since it was one of the first to work within the cave, until the Government of Malargue to take charge along with national parks.

    A place not to be missed! Very interesting, by the natural wonders that we can appreciate both the legends that adorn the place. However, I do not recommend it for anyone. While the tour is not complex, it has certain requirement that is not recommended for large people, or people with claustrophobia. I recommend to wear gloves to enjoy a little more :)

    Excellent. A tour of the interior of the Earth. You have to be in a basic physical fitness.

    A nice visit to a different place. The physical requirement is not wide. Bear in mind that is a cloister closed, sometimes small but without vegetation or insects of any kind. Different things are aprovechenlo!
