The Place

A very special place, just a few miles from Mendoza City.

La Crucecita
Refugio Auto-Sustentable
Piscina

Located just 15 miles (25 kilometers) from the city of Mendoza, there's a unique place called "La Crucecita". A long time ago, this place was inhabited by natives, Huarpes and then by Jesuits. Well known for its abundant watersheds and hidden watterfalls. So pure is the water here that decades ago, the first bottled water in Argentina was born, "La Araucana". Also known for being the first place in the Andes with a buddist temple, the small and original Stupa.


Despite being so close to the city, countryside silence can be enjoyed. Also, local fauna such as condors, purple eagles, foxes and others are frequently seen. Today, all this can be seen along with the first community of stone-made houses, powered by renewable energy.


Our mountain shelter has top-notch facilities where we enjoy asados, bonfire and local songs performed by our guitar-playing guides along with our friends and clients. A swimming pool completes the place where we'll be able to relax and cool-off after an adventure-filled day.

Our Options

We offer daily tours in the morning (10:00 am) or during the afternoon (3:00 pm). All Year Round!
During the summer, we recommend picking the afternoon to avoid the heat and enjoy the cool summer nights around the bonfire.


All the activities can be adapted according to your wants and needs.

Excelente experiencia! Se sintió más como si unos amigos nos invitaran a cabalgar y pasar el día con un asado. El lugar es increíble y tiene una muy buena vista (sobre todo de noche)
