If you want to see the Andes, this is your place. Full of snow in winter and with reasonable snow in summer, the beautifull views are memorable. In winter, be carefull with the weather. In summer, do not venture without guide. The views of the Aconcagua are a must! You can`t leave Mendoza without your photo here.

It takes - dependent on the traffic -around 1 ½ - 2 hours from Mendoza to the entrance of the Parque Provincial Aconcagua. There are two routes possible – one brings you around 1 ½ to 2 hours towards the Aconcagua – and with the written permit you are allowed hiking up the Confluencia. We left very early Mendoza and...

For a lazy Saturday walk, we definitely walk around this park and surprisingly enough everybody else was out and about. We didn't feel alone but at the same time not crowded. Good views, fresh air and good exercise. Lots to view Ana vegetation around

Rented a car in Mendoza to make the drive to Christ the Redeemer on the border between Chile & Argentina. Stopped at the park on the way back to Mendoza. They charged a small fee to enter and a quick walk/hike takes you up to a very nice view point for the mountain. Well worth the stop.

Very nice roads all the way to the park, good interpretive material in the visitor center and signs on the trails. Easy walking and stunning views. No need to go with a tour- it's an easy drive with a rental car and the entry fee was nominal (I think it was 20 pesos). You can walk as little or as... More

You should go there. First check if it is open as it winter is closed because of snow. A lot of hikers climb the Aconcagua but for that you need time and preparation. But you can visit the base of the mountain that is at 3000 mts altitude and have a great view. And the road to get there is... More

I've been here in recent trips a few times but this last time sadly the weather was still in the way (in May thats really rare). It was snowing heavily and freezing, but we still manage to get into the entrance of the park after passing a few border patrol controls (chains for the tires were a must). We couldn't... More

Definitely worth a visit, the vistas are amazing! it was snowing during my visit, adding to the ambiance but also blocking some of the views. My tour stopped a second time, once the weather had cleared up.
