The place is beautiful. The colored sands, mountains and rocks in a desertic scenery! You get to see some dinossaurs bones and footprints. The small museum has good information about the place. The only problem is that you have to go on a convoy, and the whole trip takes more than 3 hours. Too long. I think they should allow... More

We went two times. To times 130 km one way. Both times closed because the night rain. Ok the parc is closed, why not open the museum? Why not informing people on their website. So before you go, ask you hotel service desk to check if it is open.

The scenery of the Valle de la Luna is really beautiful in the middle of a desert. It really seems to be on another planet! Unfortunately to drive to the beautiful place you have to book a tour with a guide which spoke only spanish and in my opinion exagerated in telling information about this place as he also talked...

The trip to this park was very insightful! Our guide was very kind and she gave us a lot of interesting facts. The sights are amazing! This park is quite remote, but the trip to this park is amazing as well!

This place is amazing! You get to see really great views over the desert. It's best to go there by car (I don't really know if there is any other way). In the park there is a guided tour where everyone drives with there car and the guide shows you the best places and explains about the landscape and how... More

This park, and a partner Talampaya Park (90 km away) are both about 4-5 hours from everywhere (San Juan, Cordoba, Mendoza). Some tour companies squeeze both into 1 day, and if that is all the time you have, then so be it. Both parks are accessible only when accompanied by a Ranger. In Ischigualasto you drive your own vehicle in... More
