  • Beautiful experience, our nature impacts... and Fernando de Desert Truncks' magical touches make him unmatched... (I wouldn't go with Triton) I'm sure I'll come back because every sunset is unique... If you come bring food for the black is a beautiful dog, she will accompany you!

  • An excursion to a wonderful place. There are options in several agencies that offer different options: visit the salt flat and close it with a fire pit and dinner outdoors, or visit a dinner stay with Patagonian lamb and empanadas. Both are excellent. But we opted for the second option. It was an unforgettable start out. The place is nothing but that's why it has magic and infinity flavor. I recommend it.

  • Very good excursion. With the few natural resources they made a very smart bet. We went with Triton excursions. Museum, company Barn of salt manufacturer, toast, dinner with lamb and star view. advisable to bet on the work of the inhabitants of Las Grutas.
