This place looks incredible in the sun. I was flabbergasted when i first saw it. All the colours and then that creepy building right in the middle of it. There was an info board there in Spanish and English, but difficult to read due to weather damage.

Wonderful stop right before you get to the Aconcagua national park. First, the natural wonder is a marvel by itself that has fascinated people for centuries. But second, although a natural marvel, it's become historic as well with the Inca's worshipping, Darwin's visit, and the railroad that ran past it for decades. Finally, there's some lovely stalls with stones for... More

The Inca Bridge wasn't built by the Incas, but was created by nature. Quite beautiful. Great stalactites. Yellowish discoloration due to the sulphurous content of the hot springs nearby. For safety reason you are not allowed to pass bridge these days. There is a viewpoint downstream from which you can observe the bridge, with some information in Spanish only. It... More

The legend of Puente del Inca is a wonderful story based in history embellished with time. Equal is the true story of the landslide which killed 30 people in the village but bypassed the small church. Another great break from the drive.

Puente del Inca is also the name of the town where one can see an arch / bridge over a river. There is a sulfurous hot spring nearby which colored the bridge / arch yellowish. Despite the name - the bridge hasn't been built by the Incas, however it is thought that this was a place where there had been... More

Puente del Inca used to be a major attraction in the middle of the Andes where a Spa Hotel was destroyed decades ago. Sadly, for the past 10 years, the bridge to the ruins of the hotel was closed do to a couple of accidents and the constant danger of collapse around the slopes. There are a few shops next... More

We saw this amazing place while visiting the Parque Provincial Aconcagua. It was just off the main road heading towards Chile. The colours and views were fantastic. There was a place to get some food and some stalls selling goods which i found very cheap. If you are that way it is definitely worth stopping to see.

These hot springs were one of my trips highlights!! They are on Rt. 7 on the way to Santiago. They still have the vestiges of the hotel that used to be there and the chapel is still standing and the water is hot!!!!!! Oh My God!! You have to see this place!!!! I took so many pictures!!!!

One of the stops on the way to / from the Chile / Argentine border, this is an historically and geologically interesting site. For good reasons, you can no longer actually go to the thermal baths, or walk over the bridge, but still worth the stop and photos .

I did this today. This beautiful natural formation is not to be missed out on. You can use their toilets here, get something to ear and but crafts of which I recommend the ones covered in natural sulphur from the stream under the bridge. Please respect the warnings, this beautiful place may start crumbling down if people do whatever they... More
