Parked up near the island. Could’ve gone further for the spook-effect. Very windy but it quiets down overnight. A wonderful experience.

A fun but spooky though quiet and peaceful place for the night. There are still a few trains running that you can hear during night.

Wonderful place to stop overnight. Go for a walk in the piedras before dinner time.
7. Before entrance Reserva Eduardo Avaroa
FREE (entrance to the park BOL 150/ person)
