Ischigualasto Provincial Park

Cuyo - “desert country” in the Indian language - is the region of the high peaks, the snow-covered volcanoes, and the large wilderness spreading from the Andes mountain range and foothills to the steppe.
The visit to Ischigualasto - Talampaya Natural Parks, is a true journey to the dinosaurs era. Ischigualasto, also known as “Valle de la Luna” (Moon Valley) because of the amazing diversity of forms and colours of its landscape shaped by erosion, is one of the world’s most important paleontologic sites. The Talampaya River Canyon reveals amazing multi-shaped layers in its high red walls.
Pink flamingos, Andean ducks, “vicuñas” and “guanacos” cohabit freely in parks and natural reserves, while condors fly over the area.
The region displays the full splendour of the Central Andean Range. The Aconcagua (6.959 m) is the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere, and its steep slopes are renown and respected by mountain climbers from all over the world.
In the valleys of La Rioja, Mendoza and San Juan, among leaves of grapevines, farms and wineries, visitors can go along the Wine Road, an attraction of international renown.

When it comes to travel abroad, there are a few items you surely must focus on. Perhaps expertise is the most important. You are looking for a safe trip as well as an accurate schedule with no surprises nor unexpected payments at all. Chamorro Travel Services is in the incoming tourism business since 1982. Our 25-year background is the most relevant asset we use to highlight when we first know passengers from all over the world.

Trust is probably the other main column to check when you evaluate the qualifications of a given travel agent. Quality certificates are not for everyone in Argentina, due to the lack of government's and national organizations' control over small town's providers and far located suppliers. We comply both IATA and AAAVyT certifications, being the highest quality standars to accomplish. It requests a deep knowledge of every single provider all along the country, so we can choose the resources that fit each passenger. When those seals and our name are envolved, no risk is our policy.

Expertise and trust is what we sale. Full satisfaction from our customers is what we get. They are who decide year after year if the grade "experts" fits us.

Chamorro Travel Services gives you a full-country coverage although remaining a mid-size company. This allows Juan Carlos Chamorro, share holder and C.E.O., to be your personal contact no matter how special your requests are or your needs become. To be in touch with a real pro at any time makes all the difference between standard and custom-made tours.

Tour packages are good in order to compare and build a budget. But a rich, spicy, unforgettable experience is only possible when you deal with people who understand your desires, who read your needs and who are really able to deliver the tour program you were waiting for.
