What people are saying about San José de Maipo

AWESOME EXPERIENCE! Everything’s so well coordinated and the people from the travel agency are so kind. The bbq was delicious, the wine amazing and the whole experience itself. I would recommend to the hot springs service provider to fix a little bit up the bathrooms, the conditions are really really bad. To the jeep on tour crew, ¡awesome job! Service, experience, food, everything!

The natural hot springs were wonderful, the drive there was beautiful and the night under the (almost) full moon with campfire and BBQ were fantastic. A wonderful experience in the Andes Mountains! Thank you!
