  • Well worth the ride. Very interesting, very cheap. It's cold, even having gone days of heat as they were passing the time was giving a good notch.

  • Stay away from the central city. The Route involves paved road and Earth. Depending on the time of year the telescope pointed at a region. Great instructors. Has only a telescope and depending on the season or event, the flow of people is great. ** Lack public investment.

  • The ride to the Centre of Capricorn can and should be done from time to time. Goes for the family, couples in love and lonely will also have good hours of peacefulness. In addition to observe the heavens through telescopes, we also received information from professionals who work there, always willing to tell a little more about who you are interested. Remember that silence is golden and the images we see in the sky are like jewels. Charm!
