  • The area is very nice, it is great and the maintenance is great. On Sundays admission is free. It is advisable to go with a hat, cap or parasol to protect yourself from the sun.

  • A great option for travelers eager to explore and get to know a little-known area of our country, getting to this place is not easy, but when you get it the view and the tour are spectacular, very hot, it is recommended to wear clothes, appropriate footwear, hats or caps and sunscreen and against insects some sections are closed for review and conservation reasons such as the game of Ball and the observatory, it is also recommended to read before the arrival of the place there is a guide with an app, but it would be worth that in the area would sell some brochure or guide to the area for people who do not have an electronic device.
