    You will be staying in a tourist area of Argentina very close to the mountains and right next to the River Sauce. The town of Villa Dolores is about 3 kilometers away where you can visit the cafes and buy anything you need. Villa de las Rosas is close by, every Saturday a famous market is held where you can buy local produce and handmade goods.

    You will meet local people and enjoy learning about Argentina and the culture of mountain people. Gabo can show you the native plants and talk about their medicinal usage. The area has endless kilometers of public land where you can go for walks along the river, or climb the mountains.
