Parque Provincial Ischigualasto, San Agustin del Valle Fertil

Explore the natural wonder of a World Heritage Site as you view the formations at Parque Provincial Ischigualasto.

  • A place to keep going, incredible landscapes. I recommend going to the evening, around dusk, when the Sun drops generates beautiful views

  • A place that is worth living it and not only to know it. Walking, activities not limited to riding in the car, you can awaken your senses and experience the place from another approach.

  • Particularly beautiful natural park on 125 km of Villa Union. Guided tour (ARS 250 pp) where you in convoy with your wagon rides and 5 places stops. Guide speaks a little English. It is a paradise for paleontologists with many fossils from the Triassic. Gorgeous!

  • Fascinating place. 250 million years of earth's geological history in a fantastic landscape. Dinosaur fossils and more.
  • It's worth a visit. Really good scenery
  • 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 *_*
