Welcome drink, James Turrell museum, Winery Tour and tasting of 3 wines.
We came here again after 10 years to see especially our most favorite “open sky” installation from James Turrell, which is amazing.
Unfortunately the Colomé staff did not allow us to stay until the late hours to enjoy this art work. They allow now only access for their hotel guests, which was out of our budget. Too bad...
They don’t like any off-road driving in this area, so please always stay on the roads!
We spend the night in our camper on the parking lot and nobody complained.
Beautiful place. Only disadvantage: parking lot is close to the main road and there is some traffic to the mine even at night.
Much quieter option to camp is behind the mine going towards Antofalla.
Luisa is very kind and welcoming. We could park and sleep in our camper in the backyard, with very clean shower and bathroom for 250 Pesos p.P. (300 Peso p.P. with electricity).
Big rigs may not be able to enter (max height less than 3m).
Food in the restaurant excellent and freshly prepared.
At this estacionamiento we did run into Guardaparque, which charged us 300 Pesos p.p. Park entrance for foreigners. Easy access to beautiful rock formations from here.
The road from El Penon is easy at this time of the year, there is a „4x4 only sign“ but no 4x4 needed if you stay away from the sandy sidetracks, only a bit rough ripio at times. Very nice scenery, we recommend the trip.
Nice new pool with hot water. Still under construction.
No sign. Turn right after big Villa Vil entrance sign when you come from south. You have to cross a river and then turn right. With high clearance and little water no problem.
We stayed here for two nights. Unfortunately, we did not meet Walter because he was on a trip, but allowed us to stay any-case.
Banos and showers for campers are under construction, quincho is ready.
We got very valuable tips from Walter.
