The Estancia Cristina offers a day trip but to get the full effect an overnight stay is definitely worth it. The setting, the amenities, the scenery and the staff make this a great place to enjoy nature and relax. The horse back riding, the hike to see the glacier, the fossils and the soaring condors are experiences that are special. We got to spend just one night and the opportunity to close ones eyes with all the sights and sounds playing over and sinking into memories was . . . . memorable. Walking out in the morning with the sun slowly coming up behind the tall mountains to the east is also inspiring.
The staff are very courteous and considerate.
