  • A good ride. Great view of Bariloche. In Otto you can meet the rotary bar, with its 360-degree turn.

  • This is the location for the cable car up to Confitería Giratoria Cerro Otto. Bus 51 will drop you across the street on Pioneros. It's near KM5 on Bustillo but will require about a mile hike towards Pioneros. Unless you're hiking or biking to the top of Cerro Otto, it's pretty much the only way up. We showed up a half hour before the published closing time and they told us they were closed. The next day when we went to the top the listed last decent time was two hours after the published closing time. I'm not sure why "they were closed" but it is probably a "local thing". Just be aware if you're a tourist that you should get there first thing in the morning or at least a couple hours before closing. The view from the cable car on the way is amazing and worth the ride. I assume to "balance" the system they make you wait and let a lot of empty cable cars go by. Wait was only about 10 minutes but curious since I haven't seen that done before on other cable cars.
  • Kind of expensive but worth the investment. Try to arrive early because queues are very long and you will need to wait ages to enter the restaurant on top. Lots of kids.
  • Expensive and never be Copán with resident.

  • The view is great (Coast rise 300ars julio2016). Attention in the cafeteria is good but the waiting time is a disaster. We ask 4 dishes and only arrived two and while the other two (the order was loin sandwich). Can get with the 51 from the Centre civic warning that fall in cerro otto. Passage 10. 80ars paying with card comes up
