Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes

Reviewed By RicardoRabinovich - Buenos Aires

This is the only branch of the National Museum of Fine Arts in the interior of Argentina. In a very interesting modern building, it houses a remarkable collection, for a provincial South American town, which has exemplars from Modernity to nowadays. When I went, a very good time exposition was also featured. The museum cafeteria is THE place to make a stop in Neuquen City.

Parque Rosauer

Reviewed By Luisina005 - Buenos Aires, Argentina

Es un parque precioso, tranquilo, ideal para ir a descansar, a tomar un mate sin necesidad de ir al río. Tienen un sector con juegos infantiles y con aparatos para hacer ejercicios. Muy lindo lugar en el corazón de Cipolletti. Un paseo muy recomendado.

Paseo de la Costa de Neuquen

Reviewed By Peter11Melbourne - Melbourne

Travelling on business we spent most of our time in overheated meeting rooms and a walk along the river was a fantastic break: while paths, etc. are well developed and easily accessible, the river itself has a rugged wild beauty about it. Currents and eddies are clearly and easily visible - I doubt anyone would be nuts enough to swim in it. Losts of bird life and despite the fresh day, quite a few people strolling along the path. Great. Soul balancing :)

Represa El Chocon

Reviewed By Patty D - San Miguel, Argentina

Muy linda el agua, y gigantesca obra. Había estado hace muchos años pero de chiquilina y ahora volví de grande y realmente pude apreciarla en toda su magnitud. Hay que desviarse un poquito de la ruta si van para el sur, pero vale la pena tomarse unos minutos y sacar algunas fotos para el recuerdo. Un viento tremendo eh!

Limay River

Reviewed By Norb W - Tucson, Arizona

We did a river float on the Limay river. although you are in a raft, there are not rapids, just an occasional wave or two. It is beautiful scenery for the whole trip, very peaceful and quiet. Our guide pointed out various items of interest and answered many question about the area.
We were greeted at the end of the float at a small lodge which furnished snacks and beverage.
The whole trip was about 1 1/2 to 2 hour trip, but well worth the trip. A great experience.

Volcan Dumuyo

Reviewed By geoloboy - Buenos Aires, Argentina

I went to the Domuyo Volcano willing to trek on to the summit, with two friends and a mountain guide. From the beginning, all the road from Chos Malal to the volcano's base is incredible, the different landscapes which the road drives you through is amazing. Then, the 4 day-long trekking was worth it, with marvelous sights of glaciers and all the volcanic "pampa" to the north. This mountain, "el techo de la patagonia" (the patagonian roof, meaning its the highest mountain in the area, with 4700 m) is almost as high as the Mont Blanc in the Alps, but the place is completely surrounded by nothing, desolated, empty, and that's the main cause of its eternal beauty.
Even the drive to the volcano's base is worth it, if you are willing to have a different experience in a god's forgotten place.

Lago Hermoso

Reviewed By vhluna - Neuquen, Argentina

Hermoso en cualquier época!
Se llega por la ruta de los siete lagos, desde San Martin de los Andes a Villa la Angostura. A unos 40 km de San Martín sale el camino de ripio de 5 km hasta el lago.
Se puede ir a pasar el día, a pescar, a navegar, tomar sol o simplemente a quedarse sentado y perder la vista en ese paisaje indescriptible

Iglesia Catedral Neuquen

It has been a while since I was last in Neuquén but still have very fond memories of the city, its Cathedral and its people. A great jumping off point for trips further afield.

San Martin Monument

Reviewed By OilRover - Houston, Texas

To be sure, I have seen much bigger and more impressive monuments in Latin American cities but there is something really special about the San Martin monument in Neuquén. I visited this monument this morning, quite early, when the sun was just starting to rise, and the streets of Neuquén were gloomy and quiet. I sat for an hour watching the colors change and brighten on the monument, and I have to say I had a bit of a "moment".
Few people travel to Neuquén from outside Argentina, unless to barrel on through to places like Bariloche and points south. Neuquén is more than just a good place to shake off the dust, and I encourage travelers yearning to enter the "real" Patagonia to spend a day or two in Neuquén. And if they do, they must of course visit the San Martin monument on a winter's sunrise.
