  • It is a beautiful route with several tunnels and bridges up to curve. There are a few vantage points along the way where it is worth standing and looking at the landscape. It has very particular technical characteristics as defenses to prevent landslides. It is not rare that you see a condor, above all in the area near Ischigualasto and also quite tame guanacos that let you get close. Please enjoy the road and don't rush

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.
