  • The Park is beautiful and has a rich history. It runs in your own vehicle with a guide who goes forward, paving the way. This provincial park guides are experts in the history of the place and do very well get their knowledge. Safety pin!

  • You have to bancar heat. The trip is long and very picturesque. It is worth what it costs. There is a place for merchandising, but you have to carry cash. There was no posnet in February. The entry also pay in cash. There is no signal in the area. Wear hat, sunscreen, slippers, camera with lots of memory, mandatory! Follow the instructions in the Guide. We went in their own car, the road is dirt and there are rocks. There is a bus for groups. The tours have time but leave followed. It's all impressive!

  • Must-see if you are in San Juan, and if you want to know a provincial park with a lot of paleontological and geological value: you can see all of the Triassic period (beginning of the dinosaurs). If these stay in Valle Fértil, visit the exhibition of dinosaurs in front of the main square.

  • Beautiful stone formations, places where you feel like you are on the moon. You can only access the park in a guided tour where you drive your own car following the car of the ranger. The tour makes several stops where the ranger explains everything... but it is all in spanish.
  • Fantastic landscape but limited support for non Spanish speakers.
  • 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.
  • It's worth a visit. Really good scenery
