Villavicencio Reserve Trip
After picking you up from your hotel in Mendoza at 8 a.m, we will head north to the amazing Villavicencio Natural Reserve, one hour away.
On the way, besides seeing the beautiful Cerro de la Cal hill, we will make a stop at the monument of Canota. You will hear about the important role this wall played in the independence of Chile and the famous liberator José de San Martín.
Once at the Villavicencio Reserve, we will stop at its interpretation center, where we will discover the area's abundant flora and fauna. Guanacos, foxes, wild cats, and black eagles are some of the amazing animals that inhabit this place. And with a bit of luck, you will see some of them up close.
Afterward, we will explore the gardens of the Hotel Termas de Villavicencio and its chapel declared a National Historical Monument. The last stop of the trip is at the viewpoint of the snails, a natural balcony offering unique views of the area's amazing winding roads.
We will finish the excursion returning to your hotel in Mendoza at 1 pm.
