El Cerro de la Cruz, Villa Carlos Paz

Trek the popular El Cerro de la Cruz, a hill on top of which stands a 15 m (50 ft) statue of a cross. Hike the gradually climbing path, well marked and about 2,200 m (1.3 mi) long, enjoying the peaceful atmosphere along the way. When you reach the top you can admire this city landmark, rest on a bench, purchase snacks at the kiosk, and snap a few photos of the surrounding area. Wear suitable shoes and be careful during the descent, as the rocky path can get slippery.

  • It is a long and quite demanding way! But the experience we liked mixture of nature, physical activity, and panoramic views of the city. We went with a 4-year-old boy but had to carry most of the way.

  • It is a walk of approximately 1.30 hours of ascent and while down, with well-marked trails, viewpoints balconies, excellent view of the city and Lake, not suitable for people with disabilities drive that stretches it is difficult to climb and trails very Rocky at the top there is a small kiosk where you can buy some snack, also there are bedside tables to hang out and take some good mates, go with clothes comfortable and good Footwear and choose a day of little heat or cloudy because on the way there is no shadow bring water and attempting to raise early, the complex open at 8 pm and you have to register to get on and off of it.

Where to stay in Villa Carlos Paz

Despite its small size, Villa Carlos Paz features a solid array of accommodations thanks to the steady stream of city-slickers looking for a weekend of relaxation. Plenty of larger hotels featuring onsite restaurants, pools, and more upscale furnishings cluster around the highway intersection at the southern tip of the lake. While these obviously get you closer to the downtown nightlife, they generally come with a higher price tag. If you're looking for something a bit more budget-friendly, try renting a room at one of the city's many "cabanas"--smaller, lodge-like hotels farther out from the city center.
