  • Sierra de las Quijadas National Park is part of the circuit of the dinosaurs, a landscape where we are transported to the geological past 120 million! Important archeological of the Huarpes villages and geological, sites makes it unique in its kind. With different proposals as: circuit viewpoints, traces of the past and Potrero de la Aguada with farallones (natural walls with almost 200 mts from verticality)... visit the place makes us feel so insignificant before so much beauty and Majesty! He has a center of interpretation to its input, and an area of camping... without good services are still scarce... one has to understand what the important thing is be Contemplatives and learn to manage with essentials... Why recommend to wear clothes suitable for the different walks, but also shelter at low Sun thermal amplitudes are very well marked. A few kilometres from the place is a villager the Rodriguez family restaurant where you can taste stew goat to the wine, or baked barr... among other delicacies! San Luis, capital, until the distance is approximately 127 km... taking it into account for overnight or refilling fuel... and from Villa de Merlo 260km... but Ruta Nac 20 Lujan, both those who have service stations.

  • A few kilometers from the capital of San Luis you can learn a unique landscape that makes us think how it would walk on the moon. Ideal to visit in autumn or spring, in summer, be careful on hot days.

  • I went with very few expectations and let the place surprised me. The tour was very good and within all economic. I recommend it and advise carrying water for walks because they are very strenuous and the Sun gives you all the time.
