  • In the location bar and kiosk, selling souvenirs. A mini-curral allows the tourist to milk by the cow and carry out horse riding. Worth it for the beautiful local landscape, but not has so many attractions as well.

  • Totally free, I didn't see anything too much. It is a walk for those who ain't doing nothing, absolutely nothing in wells.

  • Place simple but at the same time very different and exotic. The road to arrival itself is beautiful. The stone and the rock in the vicinity are also beautiful with a wonderful view. Offer horseback riding.

  • It is more difficult to reach than climbing on rock. The access is done by car. And climb up the stone Balloon just follow a path of Red Earth beat with some steps, climb some rocks, climb a ladder and ready, you're on top of the stone balloon. The place has a beautiful view. I went early in the morning, some 8:30 had mt fog, wind and the sawmill, what ended up making more leverage. Worth going to!

  • Place of difficult access to who is on foot, the stone balloon by itself isn't worth the ride, but the site offers other types of attraction, such as horseback riding and zip line
