  • Very interesting rock formations of ferricrete, made by petrified termite or ant nests, however, not much else to see here.
  • I already shared them. Simply wonderful. Impressive.

  • It is a Geopark and protected area. The caves are millions of years old, and even though it is very small so that you can visit, it is a very nice place to spend and make history. Highly recommend to schools and educational institutions make the tour. There are where to buy souvenirs and food, carry water or buy there, warm days are felt in the walk. There is parking and tables in the open air under roof. There are also tables in the interior, air conditioning, TV and fireplace. In terms of food, there is no kitchen, is sold as a food, sandwiches, alfajores, empanadas, energy bars, soft drinks and ice cream. Health services are very neat and manicured. There is a small balcony and outdoor sculptures. Charged a symbolic entrance, very low cost, and small children come without cost. We pay $50 Uruguayans (less than U$ S 1.7 per person) the tour is done once every hour and is a previous introduction video and a small exhibition of fossils and minerals in the area. It is worth the trip, cultural interest or family departure outdoors.

  • The place is great, if you're doing tourism in uruguay you got that going. Shame you require to see a video, go with a guide, little time for diafrutar. It is not something that can be all afternoon, if in the Park. But the main attraction is very limited by guides that do not put any wave. To take care of it this perfect, but should be a little more free thing and not so much old excursion.
