After a couple of months deciding when we were going to visit this place (that we've heard off from some american and european friends), we packed our bags and took a flight that got us to the incredible Hotel & Patagonia Alto Melimoyu in "La Junta" late at night. We departed the next day taking a one hour trip that took us from la Junta to the Lodge, and that it was like going somewhere you've never heard of before. Bulky and leafy roads through a bushy forest made us feel like we were in the middle of a Jurassic Park.
Once we got there we were astonished by this lodge, its architecture and decoration, are only overcomed by the coziness of the rooms, attention and landscape that you can appreciate when you look outside the window.
Then, we had a lamb bbq (cordero al palo) with other tourists in a separated area from the lodge, and right next to the river. Those were some of the details that make the difference.
The next day we went fly fishing (best spots i've seen) in company of the instructor, but right before that, we went up the river where we encountered some hot springs that made us relax and get ready for action. We eve took a buggy ride and we visited Lago Verde, to see some other landscapes that are unique and fascinating.
We had such an amazing time and we would come back every time we could. We recommend this place like no other we've visited before.
A totally incredible and complete experience that exceeded our high expectations.
