San Juan: Ischigualasto National Park - Moon Valley

San Juan: Ischigualasto National Park - Moon Valley

Visit to the Ischigualasto Provincial park, world natural heritage and natural science museum. Is located in the northeast of the province of San Juan, 205 miles from its capital city. Popularly known as the Moon Valley, this fascinating and strange place covers about 153 000 acres and, together with its neighbor, Talampaya in the province of La Rioja, it was declared Mankind’s Heritage. Its importance resides in the scientific value of the paleontological findings made in the area: an almost complete sequence of the Triassic Period of the Mesozoic Era. To visit Ischigualasto means walking on the lands that dinosaurs inhabited 180-million years ago. The moon-like soil and strange geoforms sculpted by the water, sun and wind on the rocks over million of years, has turned this place into an otherworldly site. Return by Nacional Route 150, taking a new route to Cuesta del Huaco. Return to San Juan in the afternoon.

The car, a Renault Kangoo, was too cramped and too small for 4 participants for the 12-hour trip. ALTHOUGH WE BOOKED AN ENGLISH-LANGUAGE TOUR, THE TOUR GUIDE COULD HAVE ALMOST NO ENGLISH. The entrance fee of Arg. 20,000.00 = € 20.00 had to be paid separately. This must be mentioned in the advertisement!!! Despite these adversities, we can highly recommend the tour. The tour guide, Cristian Ruiz, was very committed, competent and helpful. Despite his lack of English skills, we can highly recommend him. The Ischigualasto Park is fantastic and worth the trip.

This was an awesome trip, and we didn't have any issues. Just make sure you have plenty of time, as travel time is around 7 hours in total, but the park is amazing, one of a kind experience

It would have been better if I had received the same commentary in English as the other travellers did in Spanish.
