After visiting the Portillo Ski resort, we drove on and crossed the border into Argentina. If you like climbing switchbacks, that is a good drive for you! We did not hike far into the park, however, the mountains are beautiful, the park is peaceful and we had the place to ourselves. It was rustic and exquisite. Even if you are... More

Hiking up the Aconagua surrounded by the majesty of the Andes has definitely been a once in a lifetime experience! We crossed from Mendoza to Chile and definitely Aconagua is the highlight of the trip. Peaceful, quiet and amazing views!

If you're in the area, this is a great stop. The park has information about the area and Aconcagua. We walked the trail behind the office to get a great look at the mountain. An easy path, it took about a half an hour to get a good view. The wind blew but it wasn't very dusty. The highest point... More

There are several options available for getting to the park. Most tourists will go on a day trip, either private, as part of a group. The private tour tends to be overpriced, the group tour still isn't too cheap. On the group tour, you typically get the option to use a ski lift at Los Penitentes, paying extra. If only... More

This tour is totally worth it! Very beautiful landscapes and amazing views of the Aconcagua mountain. Don't forget to take warm clothes with you (even if it's hot in Mendoza), it can get very cold here. Also, be warned that this park is not in Mendoza itself: it's about 180km from the city, so you will spend a lot of... More

If you are looking for WOW, you will get some here. Beautiful views, climate, clean air. Light treks for all fitness levels. It's a full day trip from Mendoza and a great diversion from the (repetitive) wine tours. If you like nature, you're in for an awesome treat.

Climbing and hiking around the park is one thing during the South American summer, I´m sure it´s fantasic. This review is based on the classic drive to the park that the hostels pitch for 300 pesos. The park is about 180 K from Mendoza, so most of your time is spent in the car. Our guide Gabriel was nice enough... More

Definitely worth a day trip. The scenery will blow your mind! The views towards the park and in the park itself are incredible. So many places to stop off on the way and soak up the natural beauty. Still a quiet attraction without too many bus tours. An excellent way to spend the day in this wonderful area of the... More

Beautiful drive up to an information center from which one can take a short hike for an even closer view of this magnificent mountain.
