  • Excellent family ride, is done with your own vehicle in a caravan, will stopping at several points where the guide tells you in detail the story of these formations. In summer take plenty of water and a hat, long heat.

  • The tour did we undertake in the mini bus in which we mobilized, of he climbed the Guide and he was telling us a little bit of the wonderful history of this place. I don't remember the name of the guide who was leading us in a very entertaining way by the almost 4 hours of tour. It is worth taking the time to do so and take retinas the immensity of the place, and also listen to archaeologists working at the site. Please note that visits may be suspended by rain since the surface becomes very slippery. Finally there are some stands for souvenirs at the start of the tour, where the prices are reasonable and all sellers are very attentive. The WiFi in the place is very good.

  • 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 *_*
  • This national park is well off the typical tourist trail and I'm not sure how many international visitors to Argentina come here. But it is well worth the effort. The landscapes are incredible and there's a lot of variety you can see in just the one tour. The moonscapes are beautiful but the red cliffs are also a highlight. You need to go with a tour once you're there but that's a good way to learn a bit more about everything.
  • One of the best parks in Argentina. The views are amazing and totally unseen if you come from a populated area. Extremely recommendable
