  • Beautiful landscapes along modern route with great works of engineering. It was declared the best road work of the year. It connects Jachal with the Valley of the Moon

  • Excellent condition. Wonderful views and is ideal for filming the change of scenery that occurs from the route to the exit of the tunnel.

  • As we don't have own vehicle, we hire in San Juan Capital excursion with BACUR tourism to the Ischigualasto National Park. We were dissatisfied with the service, that it when hired it had said us that the price included breakfast and lunch (and that length was almost 10 am) and included the entrance to the Park. Once paid, they clarified that breakfast and lunch were not included, and arriving at the place the guide who took us, who transferred her passengers, asked that we pay the entry since it was not included. We had to put more money than because we had put, that by the way, don't get all cheap. It was worth it, since the Guide to the return (of wave) made us know this wonderful way. We passed by Huaco and Jáchal.

Where to stay in San Juan

Within Av. Circunvalacion sits the main bulk of San Juan's places to stay. Plush, modern high-rises tower over the central neighborhood, while older, more traditional hotels line the edges of the main urban parks and plazas. Budget-friendly options come in the form of unassuming, converted residential blocks and rental apartments. If you head outside of the ring road, you'll have a choice between relaxing lodgings on the estates of local wineries, and a good selection of back-to-basics campgrounds.
