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

The history is amazing and the landscapes were breathtaking. You are in and out of your car as you take the tour. The hikes you take (15 min max.) are light and easy. Still - where good boots or shoes. Service in the cafe was awful by any standard. Buy a sandwich to go (excellent bread) and save yourself the... More

This park was a fun activity to do, though a bit hard if you don't have a car. We stayed in St Augustin and had to hire a car and driver for the tour. When we arrived we put our name down for the next tour. The tours happen hourly. We then visited the museum and little shops to kill... More
