    The place is divine, I recommend going to take the you in the place of Lady Di (comes out more expensive than others), but worth it because the setting is magical, very nice and neat. EYE! You should go from the 16 before everything is closed!

    We went and came from trelew today already we had the return flight to Bs As the night. There are collective every half hour. The value is not high. Houses of you very nice, as a negative point each service this 350 pesos and brings everything and rich, but they don't give you the possibility of taking only a you (went on couple and two services of you ends up overrunning much food that if well can you take to having to take the plane then was uncomfortable).
