Parque Lomas de Arena, Santa Cruz
(3.6/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Explore the 14,000 hectares (34,594 acres) of Parque Lomas de Arena, a semi-arid coastal area featuring sand dunes rising to 12 m (39 ft). The park opened in 1990 to protect the dunes, but encompasses a variety of terrain including jungle, tropical plains, and a picturesque central lagoon. Keen-eyed visitors can spot numerous mammals and over 250 avian species here. Currently, no public transport services the park, so your best bet is to visit with a tour company; consider one that operates specific birdwatching excursions.

  • The place is cute and nothing else. It does not have an infrastructure for tourists. Close to the hills there is a hotel which is completely neglected and unmaintained. But can be a good option for the lunch and if is running the pool, for cooling is in a day of heat. But, it is best to take everything you need... such as water, sanduiches etc. It is good to know but at the same time I see it means dangerous since there are no police in the place, and I've already heard from many assaults tourists there same.

  • Prekarsen Park, but overshadows the visit only one-the quality of the roads and the desire of local law and order Ministers tear any alien depending on its appearance on a tidy sum for entry.
