  • We went this route traveling from San Juan to La Rioja and the landscapes that we enjoyed impressed us along its route. The route is in good condition with great amount of curves, contracurvas and tunnels. There are some areas where you can stop and take good pictures. It should be handled with caution as there may be some loose animals.
