Valley of the MoonPrint
The Valley of the Moon, otherwise known as the Ischigualasto National Park, is in the north-eastern province of San Juan, about a five hour drive from the provincial capital of San Juan City. Although the Valley of the Moon is obviously the main attraction, along with its sister park Talampaya in next-door La Rioja province, there is lots to see and do in San Juan itself as well as other beauty spots in the province, from bathing in the sulfurous hot springs just outside the city to caravelling –that’s karting with a sail- on the dry lake bed of El Barreal in the Andean foothills. Horse-riding, fishing and windsurfing as well as plenty of history and culture give San Juan a special place in guidebooks.
