Enjoy the beautiful landscape of Villavicencio and its mineral water springs.
We will visit charming landscapes of the Villavicencio area, a natural reserve located at 3,030 meters. We will go through the Industrial Zone and Canota Monument. We will continue our trip to the famous Villavicencio Hotel, a classic image of Mendoza’s mountain that, together with its beautiful gardens and parks, make for an unforgettable walk at any time of the year.
Leaving the city of Mendoza, we will take the old route to Chile, a path steeped in history, since San Martín traveled it with his Andes Army in the liberating campaign; and then head towards Provincial Route No. 52, where we can see the Canota Monument and an impressive view of the foothills of Mendoza.
We will arrive at the Vaquerías stall, a former place for baqueanos and muleteers, and today the place where works the first park ranger section of the Villavicencio Natural Reserve, created in 2000. Advised by specialized guides, we will come into contact with this delicate ecological balance, covering 70,000 hectares.
Then, we will continue towards the old international road and we will cross part of the Caracoles road, named in this way for its large number of curves. Finally, after taking photos of the Villavicencio gorge from above, we will get to know the historic center of the Villavicencio Hotel and its gardens. It is an excellent excursion for those who do not have a whole day to get to know Mendoza’s mountain.
