3 amazing places in San Rafael

San Rafael (Mendoza) offers endless places that leave those who visit them breathless. Today we want to tell you 3 amazing places in San Rafael.


Outside the  typical circuits , San Rafael ( Mendoza ) offers endless places that leave those who visit them breathless. A land full of natural beauties and beautiful experiences to enjoy. Today we want to tell you 3 amazing places in San Rafael:

  1.  Atuel Falls . In the district El Sosneado there is a unique but not so well-known attraction: the Atuel Falls. There you can find guides who know the area and make excursions to the waterfalls. Horseback riding is possible to cover the 60 km to the ruins of the thermal hotel, which is very close to the Chilean border. A unique experience reserved only for brave people. The waterfalls impress because they are the only ones of their kind in this part of the country, where mountains and melting rivers predominate.
  2.  Salinas del Diamante . Located in El Nihuil district, Salinas del Diamante is a National Protected Area of Mendoza province. This is a huge open-pit salt mine, 60 km from the city of San Rafael. There is the Salt Museum, which serves as an information point for people who want to visit the Salinas. Both at the entrance to the museum and in the vicinity of the saline there are machinaras that were formerly used to extract the mineral.
  3.  Overo Volcano.  Overo volcano is steps from El Sosneado district, on the rising Atuel River. Located in the heart of the Andes mountain range, it is a geological formation of more than 4600 meters high. The Overo is an inactive volcano and is therefore crowned by eternal glaciers. It is an ideal place to perform superior mountaineering.

Meet these and other amazing places in San Rafael.
