We will continue the trip to the famous Villavicencio Hotel, which constituted the classic image of Mendoza mountain that, together with its beautiful gardens and parks, make up an unforgettable walk at any time of the year. Visitors can appreciate the beauty of the area according to the tones of each season.

Leaving the city of Mendoza, we will take the old route to Chile, a path loaded with history, since San Martin traveled with its Andes’ Army in the liberating campaign to then head towards the provincial route No. 52, where we can see the Canota’s Monument and an imposing view of Mendoza’s mountain range.
We will arrive at the Vaquerías post, former place of ‘baqueanos’ and muleteers, and today the place where the first park ranger section of the Villavicencio Natural Reserve works, created in 2000. Advised by specialized guides, we will get in touch with this delicate ecological balance, covering 70000 hectares of extension.
Then, we will continue to the old international road and we will travel part of the Caracoles road, named this way for its large number of curves. Finally, after taking photos of the Villavicencio gorge from the height, we will get to know the historic Villavicencio Hotel and its gardens. It is an excellent excursion for those who do not have a whole day to know the mountain of Mendoza.
