  • We went to the park with a bus tour (450 pesos) and the entrance was 250 pesos (100 for national students). The guy owning the bus company also owns Ischigualasto Hostel. He only speaks Spanish though...  more »

  • 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 *_*
