  • It is an amazing place. The landscapes are wonderful. If you come from San Martín de los Andes you will take 2 hours aprox. Much of the road is gravel. Access to the national parks have cost. National resident $120. Children from 6 to 12 years $60. There are many options to eat. It is good to bring food. The trip from Puerto Canoa is incredible, bordering the Lanin a didactic super Guide.

  • I'm going every summer. It is my annual dose to energize me for the whole year. To go with family, friends, alone, as a couple. To make many activities, as well as just to rest.
