Four proposals to enjoy San Juan in winter

The cold months are a good time to visit San Juanthanks to its good climate and an offer based on its natural and gastronomic attractions.

And although the Valley of the Moon is the star of the place, there is more to see and do in the province. Here are four proposals for this winter:

1. Ischigualasto Provincial Park

To explore Ischigualasto It is traveling the same paths that the dinosaurs traveled 180 million years ago, between arid landscapes that seem to come from another planet.

Ischigualasto, in San Juan. The Valley of the Moon as you have never seen it.

The main attractions of the place -declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO- are the paleontological remains of the Triassic Period and the strange stone formations shaped by the wind, water and sun that gave the park its unofficial name: Valle de la Luna.
