Cuyo is the region of the high peaks, the snow-covered volcanoes, and the large wilderness spreading from the Andes mountain range and foothills to the steppe.
The Cuyo Region is in the central-west of the country and it spans three provinces: San Juan, Mendoza and San Luis.
The visit to Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley), is a true journey to the dinosaurs era. The amazing diversity of forms and colours of its landscape shaped by erosion, is one of the world’s most important paleontologic sites.
Andean ducks, “vicuñas” and “guanacos” cohabit freely in parks and natural reserves, while condors (the national bird) fly over the area.
In the valleys of this region, Argentinean grapes, future world-renowned Argentinean wines, are grown. Some wines you must try: Malbec, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin and Riesling.
