  • A very nice walk, being a place of archaeological value, and with small walks, it is advisable to go with water and elements of protection to the sun, the advantage of going with your vehicle, you can have everything in it, and being entertained with the landscape the hours pass fast

  • Amazing scenery, with guide, entrance is not expensive, museum, a unique experience. the transfer within the park is done in caravan headed by the guide in private car or contracted vehicle, we did it with Soria Hnos. from Fertile Valley.

  • Unmissable excursion to the famous Valley of the Moon, exceeding our expectations, in the footsteps of the Dinosaurs. Strange figures on the rocks that change over the years. We made it in our truck, in a 12-car lot. The Americo guide (Grande Meco!) got in our car which gave the trip a bonus. He reminded us of a high school geography teacher, with passion and knowledge. Actually with my lady we ended up learning a lot from the hand of your knowledge. There were five stops, in which Americo was describing and explaining what had happened in those valleys for thousands and thousands of years. Very interesting! There are new walkways for the hike through arid terrains, although if these places were sponsored by the North Americans, there would already be Dinosaurs walking through the Valley and much more paraphernalia than the cute Museum at the entrance. The entrance fee $450 for all and $250 for Sanjuaninos. There are not many hotel structures in the nearby area, except 70 kms in Fertile Valley.

  • Landscape beyond imagination. The tour is well organized with several frequencies. The bicycle tour is worth doing, you can see the fauna closer. You can hire everything at the park or through the web
  • Great spot for camping, nice bathrooms/showers, friendly staff, and good tour of the valley. Interesting geology similar too that found on the Southwest United States. We camped during the winter end June 2019 right before the eclipse. Saw Andean condors at and around the park.
  • Amazing park! We’ve had a very interesting and enjoyable day! We strongly advise to start the day with the « classic tour » (in the car) for 3hrs then, after lunch break, do a hike that start at 3pm for 2,5hours. Both activities are really complementary. The park should be clearer on the timing of each activity, on their website, to enable everyone to prepare better the day (eg: timing of the classic tour, timing of the beginning of the hike, etc) The staff was really friendly and knowledgeable !
  • Great park with amazing variety of rock formations. You ride with your own vehicle in a convoy with a guide, ours where really knowledgeable and friendly. Takes about 3 hours but it is worth the stop. We camped there the night in their new camp ground - great and clean facilities.
  • Nice and educating place... Must visit for school and college students... Even for parents who wish to relive there old memories... It usually focuses on old traditions and the old games placed by children, their lifestyle, their daily routine and everything at one place... If you visit do upload the pics on the internet and encourage even other people to visit this place...
