  • Was still closed and we went only to the lookout, but the view is great and you can see species of ducks and flamingos in the pond

  • My favorite!!! There's no way to explain what I felt in that place, even not being able to climb on the rocks and without entering the Park and may only look from above, left me impressed. the colors have the laguna is something lovely! This tour made on the same day that the altiplanicas lagoons. It was magical to be there, I want to go back when the Park reopens.

  • The Piedras Rojas are currently closed, on behalf of a man who disregarded the rules and made kite surfing in its waters. Unfortunately, only the contemplate of viewpoints, but it was enough to feel the energy and beauty of this magical place. Very beautiful!
