  • I happen to love birding. This reserve is a very short walk from town and definitely worth the couple of hours it takes to walk along the well marked gravel or planked pathways. It is picturesque...

  • An amazing quite natural place. 1000 pesos for a foreigner, 500 for a resident. Great for a free day to just walk around.
  • A nice place to have a walk and make some bird watching. Is the day is windy I would not recommend it. On the other hand, it has a direct access to lake Argentino.
