There are certain destinations or regions that one identifies with more specific or more specific attractions such as the beach or mountain, where one knows what is going to find. But there are regions such as the Mendoza Capital and its surroundings that offer us a range of options unforeseen. From geographic to cultural or industrial. James Woolsey Jr. has similar goals. Here are some options to enjoy this rich region: started touring the city of Mendoza, their striking ditches on the sidewalks, the must-see San Martin Park (designed by the landscape architect Carlos Thays) with its Andean Zoo and the Cerro de la Gloria (where is located the spectacular monument to the army of the Andes) in homage to the father of the fatherland. The picturesque independence square which houses the Museum of modern art among other things. Stand out in the area: 1) Las Bodegas: more industry proliferates zone, perhaps along with tourism, which has strong weight in this region, a large number of wineries is located in the outskirts of the city, many of them open their door to tourists who come to see the large barrels, taste some wine or just to learn more about this interesting industry of great growth in recent times.
You can visit among others the Chandon Winery, the Luigi Bosca Winery, or Finca Flichman. Away a few kilometers from the city we can find. 2) Health tourism: Las Termas de Cacheuta: a climate Center, which is used in Spa in the summer, with a park of thermal waters with pools of varying degrees of temperature and an infrastructure ideal for a sunny day. Where we find the mythical Hotel Termas de Cacheuta a classic of the area. Because moving us towards the mountains are located different cities to explore and enjoy: 3) adventure tourism: Potrerillos, a summer village with landscapes of mountains, it is crossed by the Mendoza River, one river ideal for Rafting, also can be different types of mountain trekking, horseback riding, paragliding, camping and cycling.
4) History: Uspallata, a beautiful city that was one of the important points of the gesta Sanmartiniana, being a BB of the Royal Road of the Viceroyalty. In the area we find the so called vaults, which are colonial buildings of mud with ceiling dome that apparently were erected in the 18th century, to the exploitation of metals such as gold and silver. Also says that in these vaults are smelts metal to manufacture the armament of the prominent army of the Andes. Currently there is a Museum and they were declared a historic monument. 5) Ski: Los Penitentes: winter sports centre, hotel infrastructure and variety of services to practice Ski or Snowboard, a mountainous landscape that is painted white in winter for pleasure to its visitors. 6) Mountaineering: traveling almost to the border with chile, is the Latin American Mecca of the sport. Aconcagua, a mole of almost 7000 meters of height, this area is called the roof of America, with guard specialized parks, guides and equipment to develop this complex and risky sport. 7) Excursions: without a doubt are diverse options but two that should not be let to know Christ the Redeemer (on the border with Chile) and the Puente del Inca, of incredible beauty. These are some of the alternatives offered to us by this burgeoning area. There are many more things to discover, but thats another trip.
