What people are saying about Buenos Aires Province

Ir entre semana es mucho mejor que un fin de semana por la cantidad de gente. Hay muchas opciones para comer en el lugar, nos encantó el local de Palta por las opciones de comida más saludable. Nuestros hijos son mellizos de 9 años y como era un día de mucho calor, les encantó pero fue muy cansador como para recorrer todo el parque. Decidimos dejar para otra vez la parte de la granja. El acuario y los aviarios son fascinantes para grandes y chicos. Un paseo muy disfrutable. Con niños de 9 años, calcular 5 horas. Más que eso les resulta un poco largo y se cansan. Las tiendas tienen buenas opciones, precios razonables. A la entrada te sacan una foto de familia y otra a los chicos solos, que podés comprar a la salida con un marco temático de cartón. Muy lindas fotos. Si comprás las 2 te regalan un vaso. Vale la pena. Tener en cuenta los horarios picos de tránsito: a la vuelta de tarde la autopista suele estar congestionada. Incluír costo de peajes y comidas para calcular valor final real.

Perfect day out. Colonia de Segramentio is spectacular, peaceful and absolutely beautiful

Easy day trip from Buenos Aires. We used our Argentina money there without any problems.

Very good, worth it! Guide Hernan was very attentive to us!
