    It is a place to meet since it is unique. Visits with their own car, but with a guide are. A guide who leads a caravan of many cars. Five stops where are made e lguia will explain the characteristics of formations. Also referred to a building of the University where research and teaching are carried out and explain how they identified the fossils of dinosaurs and other species. The entrance is less expensive than the Talampaya Park. Whether college students wear libtreta or record because there is much difference in the cost of the entry. It takes approximately four hours travel.

    We liked this place a lot. We must go with a guide but each one goes on your vehicle, bone makes a caravan of cars type and who goes first is the Guide. There are 5 stops total is one where lowered the car and the guide explains all about where we are. There is time for questions and photos. The tour is very cute. There is a place where a coffee before the explanation of fossils at the penultimate stop. Coffee or what one buy is very welcome at this point of the road! Highly recommended!

    An earring in my life that I could meet, and did it with great pleasure. The visit is interesting, although in winter holidays it is complicated by the large number of visitors. The tour is made in own vehicles, following a caravan that stops at different stations in which the guide offers an explanation and are available a few minutes for the photos. It's worth the time.

    Fascinating place. 250 million years of earth's geological history in a fantastic landscape. Dinosaur fossils and more.

    You can only see the best of this beautiful UNESCO park on the 3 hour self driven car tour. So you'll either need to take your own, find someone who'll let you in theirs or hire a remis. The tour includes a couple of short walks. The scenery changes colour, texture and vegetation every 5 mins. Well worth the trip.

    Good Things Come To Those Who Wait! Well, I have waited for more than one (1) month to see the Parque Provincial Ischigualasto and finally on Thursday, February 2, 2017, my wish came True! This park reminds me very much of the other park called Talampaya out in La Rioja because both parks have a Dinosaur Style Museum, plus have several Rock Formations. Some of the names of the Rock Formations that we saw were called "El Gusano", "El Hongo", "El Submarino", "La Esfinge", "La Cancha De Bochas", "El Valle Pintado" and "Entre Otras". It was an amazing Experience and we had Clear Blue Skies with No Rain! I took many pictures and with me came Jorge, our Driver And Tour Guide, Plus Ricardo and Nahir who were other tourists with me during the Excursion. I want to also personally thank Yamile from Pinkanta Viajes out in San Juan Capital City for Making This Possible! I also want to personally thank Sonia from the Ministerio De Turismo for Helping Me Out As Well! Sincerely yours, Howard Paul Shore Visitor Executive, Volunteer Writer For Google And Tripadvisor /HPS

    Views over diverse and alien landscapes were amazing. Don't save your SD card space here and make sure everything is FULLHD at least. Spanish tour guide enjoyed his excellent expressive speech. I think he ordered us to not walk around and stay on walking paths *_*
