Doña Pipa – Cabañas de Campo
ArcticTropic was the guest of Doña Pipa Cabañas in Barreal, Calingasta in western San Juan Province for two nights and a day. The Inn is owned by two brothers , Ramón and Diego Ossa Federico. Ramón runs many eco and adventure tours through Explora Parques – which leads excurions to four National Parks spread out over thousands of square miles – some of the trips last several days. ArcticTropic made use of limited time by going to nearby Parque Nacional Leoncito.
The Posada is comfortable and casual – reminiscent of being in the Western United States, but with delicious Argentine food and wine.
THe rooms are simple and quiet – bu there is wifi !
ArcticTropic took a bike ride up one of the dirt roads in town on a beautiful spring morning.
Riding is also offered – with Western saddles.
A healthy and tasty dinner awaits in the restaurant – welcome protein after a long day trekking and riding. It is open till midnight.
