Once you get to the park, it is well organized. You have to join a tour to visit the sites. It is a little pricy, 600 pesos (March 2017) for a 3.5 hour tour and 250 pesos for the park fee. I stayed in the...More

Like other parks in the area (notably Parque Provincial Ischigualasto), unless you are in La Rioja to specifically to sightsee the area, they are challenging to get to and visit. However, the views are stunning and there was a good balance of bus rides (to...More

The park may be worth visiting, but it is so hard to get it done. There are too many hurdles that one needs to overcome before one can join one of the expensive excursions (unless you are a local). Virtually nothing is written in an...More

To keep it short. If you have only time for one park skip Ischigualasto, the so called Valle de la Luna, and visit Talampaya. It is much more impressive and reminded us of Monument Valley but much less crowded. It has beautiful red rock formations,...More

Hola Jarek. No te recomiendo hacer los dos parques el mismo día. Para disfrutarlos precisas un día para cada uno. Espero te sirva mi opinión.
