Horseback riding can be performed to cover 60 km to the ruins of the thermal hotel, which is very close to the border with Chile. A unique experience reserved only for the brave. The waterfalls are impressive because they are the only ones of their kind in this part of the country, where mountains and melting rivers predominate.
  2. Diamond Salt Flats. Located in the El Nihuil district, Salinas del Diamante is a National Protected Area in the province of Mendoza.
