What to see

Aguas Chiquitas Nature Reserve - El Cadillal

It has three access gateways: Campo Los Alisos (the only one with basic services), Campo de las Azucenas (only accessed in 4WD vehicles and with a very popular trail in October, when madonna lilies blossom) and Cochuna - Laguna del Tesoro lagoon. Free-of-charge.
