Of all my travels, this place is by far the hardest to find any information on, so I want to do my part to change that. First off, position yourself either in San Luis (1.5 hours) or San Juan (I think 2.5). Joining a tour in either city is probably the best case scenario, but from what my hostel's staff... More

We visited today by public transport. 1. There are frequent busses until 8:05, then nothing until 12:00. We took the 8:05, but the park gets very hot as you walk, so an earlier would be better. 2. Many people say the bus drops you at the ranger station. No. It drops you on the main road near a shop and... More

If I'm not mistaken, there are 2 different paths to go through. One might be for like 2 hours, it's already an amazing view. Crazy stories and life in that place are almost magical. There's a longer tour for a couple of more hours, that's gotta be fantastic. If you're a lucky bat-tard you'll get to take the "Sierra de... More

This place was amazing, breathtaking views. We felt it would have been helpful to have the following information prior to visiting: Access to the park is difficult. We tried to arrange a tour however were advised that there was only 1 tour company in San Luis who were able to provide tours and the tours ran on Sundays and Thursdays... More

It took us about 2.5 hours from San Luis Capital City to get there, but it is well worth it and You will leave the place taking with You Very Memorable Pictures to Cherish forever! I definitely Recommend this place to visit on... More

It is a bit hard to get to this national park but the views are stunning. Apparently there is a bus service but in the end I hired a tour with a guide based in San Luis (city). The journey from San Luis took about just under two hours and once we were there we walked on some of the... More

If remote is your thing, this is it. The setting is beautiful but getting there is a challenge. I had to pay a cab $100 US to take me up from San Luis, but that said, it was worth it.

We set out on a day trip to see this park from Mendoza. You definitely need to confirm your route with someone that's been out this far beforehand. We tried following the map via San Luis and that was a mistake. It was almost 5 hours to get there--as opposed to 3 hours via San Juan. However, once we finally... More
