Laguna Brava, Province of La Rioja

  • We hired a guide in the Laguna Brava cooperative in Vinchina - we went with our own vehicle along beautiful mountain places. We went through a small village, Jague where we awaited dona Nina with delicious freshly made pies and pastries for the afternoon. Reach the Lake populated by flamingoes was a unique experience. The guide was always attentive to evacuate all doubts. Excellent

  • One of the most beautiful place of Argentina! Still unknown, difficult to access and very preserved, provided it lasts... Super Highway to go, still a better light return and place the fantasy of a diamond giant seam in the middle of the highest volcanoes in the Andes. The diamond becomes turquoise along the lagoon. Flamingos pink and delicious vicuñas animate this fairyland. Go ahead, but respect this enchanting place and keep your breath, can there suffer from altitude sickness.
