· About Acrux ·

Acrux Stellar Destinations’ team combines passion for travel with an in-depth knowledge of South America. After traveling extensively throughout the continent during the past years, we are aware of what this region has to offer and would like to reveal some of its hidden jewels. In addition, the entire team of Acrux Destinations have studied, worked and most importantly lived in different parts of the world allowing them to bridge cultures and understand their clients’ needs perfectly well.

Paolo di Campello and Tomas Menceyra, Acrux’s directors, got together almost 10 years ago in 2007 when they realized that there was no travel agency in the country that could offer personalized trips and exceptional service. The idea was to offer travellers itineraries based on personal likes and interests and not just common touristic packages. Paolo and Tomas have known each other for a long time, since studying and working in the US (Boston and Miami & Los Angeles) for 7 years. Actually, they got to a point where they were recommending traveling to Argentina to friends and co-workers very often and nobody could take good care of them or offer unique experiences. Besides while working abroad in the financial industry was not the same, Paolo and Tomas totally understood their friends’ preferences while traveling.

    Argentina is the country of the six continents, probably the only one in the world that manages to summarize in its territory all the climates and landscapes. Below you will find a small summary of each of the regions that make up the national geography, from the unpredictable Buenos Aires to the solitude of the northern puna and the immensity of the Patagonian steppe.

  • Pampas

    Sea of grass
    "A sea of grass, broken by islets of slender palms,
    that spring up out of the waves of grass, as coral
    reefs rise from the depths of the Pacific Ocean."
    Robert Cunninghame-Graham, José Antonio Páez
  • Mesopotamia

    Gardens of Babylon
    "You have to go through terrible roads
    to reach her small, muddy house
    propped-up with red quebracho,
    full of trees is its patio
    and working Tools:
    a horse-backed coach, a plow
    and the landscape of her Chaco."
    Los Tucu Tucu, La Oma
  • Cuyo

    In vino veritas
    "Mendoza, land of sun and good wine.
    Mendoza, of the infinite Andes.
    My land, that of the sweet women of Mendoza.
    Mendoza, that which cradled freedom!"
    Guillermo y Horacio Pelay, Canto a Mendoza
  • Buenos Aires

    Queen of Silver
    "I don’t believe those who say Buenos Aires was ever born: I actually swear she is as eternal as water and air."
    Jorge Luis Borges, Fundación mítica de Buenos Aires
  • Southern Patagonia

    It is not the end of the world: it is the beginning of everything
    "The sunset was glorious: the valleys were black
    while the snowy peaks of the Andes maintained
    a tint of gold."
    Charles Darwin, Voyage of the Beagle, 1834
  • Northern Patagonia

    Land of myths and pioneers
    "Patagonia, Holy Land
    because God so wished.
    After the seventh day,
    He came down to drink
    from your rivers."
    José Larralde, Patagonia
  • Northwest

    Blessed be Pachamama
    "There, a small house shadowed by a fig tree
    and, under the tree, a dog sleeping;
    and when the sun sets,
    a herd coming back from the hills."
    Rodolfo Polo Gutiérrez, Paisaje de Catamarca

  • Buenos Aires – Córdoba, Córdoba
    A hilly landscape and favourable weather conditions are distinctive in Córdoba, a place where natural sceneries are mixed with colonial monuments. Little towns, historical antiques and cave paintings are found in a pleasant valley landscape, high plains and gorges.
    Cordoba’s hills rise toward the north-western Pampas plains. They are part of the “Sierras Pampeanas” mountain range, reaching 2,790 m high in the Champaqui hill. All these hills are particularly appealing because of their fertile valleys, deserts and salt mines.
    Whether horse-riding, walking or simply relaxing and enjoying the landscape from a quiet corner, the energy of the place transforms and renovates the body and soul.
  • Córdoba, Córdoba
    Córdoba has long been distinguished because of its cultural richness. Cerro Colorado Natural and Archaeological Park, with their Pre-Hispanic cave paintings being some of the most beautiful and complete cave paintings in the continent, has witnessed such cultural richness. Cerro Colorado was poet Atahualpa Yupanqui’s favourite place and his mortal remains lay next to his house, which is now a museum. Atahualpa Yupanqui, which means in Quechua language, “he who comes from faraway lands to say something”, was an Argentine singer, songwriter, guitarist, and writer. He is considered the most important Argentine folk musician of the 20th century.
  • Córdoba, Córdoba Province
    The proofs of the Compañía de Jesús’ actions from 1599 to 1767 in this province occupy a prominent place. Given the importance of the Jesuit Block and Estancias in Córdoba, these have been declared World Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO. Walking along the road called “Camino de las Estancias Jesuíticas” of the Jesuit Estancias you will have the opportunity to discover landscapes, traditions and habits which define the cultural and tourist identity of Córdoba.

    All along the way northward, you will find many 17th and 18th century chapels and farmhouses inherited from the Jesuits.
  • Córdoba, Córdoba Province
    Due to the great water insufficiency, the first great work of the Jesuits was of hydraulic engineering: a set of underground conduits by which the water arrived at the property from Ongamira, several kilometres of distance in the mountain ranges, and was stored in a great stem. Thus, Santa Catherine became the great center of cattle production with thousands of heads of cattle, ovine and hinny, besides the manufacture with its looms and equipments, the blacksmith shop, the carpentry, the fulling mill (oscillating frame of loom) and two mills. But beyond the great production, Santa Catherine is well-known by its church, baroque example of the colonial one in Argentina, visibly influenced by the Central European architecture of the same style.
  • Córdoba, Córdoba
    Córdoba’s rivers and streams crossing hillsides, with transparent waters plenty of trout challenging even the best fisherman, are ideal for fly fishing. Situated between 1,000 and 2,000 m above sea level, these rivers and streams are characterized by their top quality waters, which are very oxygenated and cold.
    Very good trout fishermen go to the rivers adjacent to Villa General Belgrano, Pampa de Achala, Condorito Gorge and Panaholma River, where there are plenty of fontinalis trout. Rainbow trout prevail and many brown trout and salmons have been raised. These are often found in streams and tributary rivers rather than lakes. Fishing is a good idea any time of the year. However, the ideal season is from October to May.
    For those who want to be in touch with nature, options are countless mountaineering, climbing, trekking, horseback riding, mountain biking, 4 x 4 journeys, photography safaris, plant and animal watching, paragliding flights, hand-gliding and ballooning.

  • Puerto Iguazú, Misiones Province
    Puerto Iguazú City borders with Brazil and Paraguay along the course of Paraná and Iguazú Rivers, providing the greatest spectacle of water and forest on Earth - the imposing Iguazú Falls - in guaraní language "Big waters". These waterfalls of the Iguazu River are located on the border of the Argentine province of Misiones and the Brazilian state of Paraná. They are the largest waterfalls system in the world.
    Today you will go sightseeing in the city of Foz do Iguazu, natural entrance to the Brazilian side of the Falls and visit the Brazilian side of the National Park, walking along the sidewalks which have breath-taking views of the falls; here you can clearly observe the fracture of the soil, highlighted by the river flow. The falls divide the river into the upper and lower Iguazu.
  • Iguazú Falls, Misiones Province
    On the Argentina side you will find the Iguazú National Park – a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site – you could visit 275 waterfalls and get to know its exotic flora and fauna. In a small ecological train you will get closer and closer to the falls and have the opportunity to appreciate them from the sidewalks, until you get to the Devil's Throat which is the main focal point of the river’s power.
    Then, you could undertake the Great Adventure, an amazing experience going through the rainforest in 4X4 vehicles, sailing the rapids of Iguazú River until you get closer to some of the most extraordinary falls where you will have a “baptism in the mist”.
  • Iguazú – El Soberbio, Misiones
    The jungle of Misiones has a natural charm and magnetism along with wonderful landscapes. This part of the province, located 280 km from Posadas and 290 km from the Iguazu Falls, is known as the Region of the Waterfalls and Cascades, and it is where the magnificent Waterfalls of Moconá (Saltos de Moconá) are located.
    On the road, you will visit the San Ignacio Mini ruins, the Jesuit Missions, which have been elected Cultural Historic Heritage by UNESCO. The dirt-road continues through paths of amazing red soil while traversing the dense Jungle of Misiones until you reach the small town of El Soberbio. Close to town you will get to an exclusive lodge, where you will be staying in the middle of the jungle.
  • Saltos de Moconá, Misiones
    You will get to the river in 4WD vehicles, you will jump into boats and explore the 3 kilometers of falls at your side, which were produced by a geological fracture on the Uruguay River. The river is divided in two and the streams run parallel to one another, but while one follows the natural decline of the terrain, the other keeps going higher and pushing its waters with incredible power.
    On the outskirts of the Yaboti Biosphere reservation, you could take interpretative hikes in the woods with some native Guarani Indian guides. You could witness as well some of the most amazing autochthonous fauna or set out on a photographic safari in 4x4 vehicles.
  • El Soberbio – Esteros del Iberá
    At midday you could embark on a private flight through the Iberá Marshlands on a Cessna 182 (previous transfer to the runway). It will land on a traditional estancia of the Iberá wetlands, where you will spend the next nights surrounded by huge swamps, incredible flora & amazing fauna.
    The estancia is a small, refined eco-tourist hotel in the ranch’s recycled main house. Located in a subtropical climate zone.
  • Esteros del Iberá, Corrientes
    There are many activities to experience at the estancia such as horseback riding, boat & canoe trips, nature walks & fly fishing. On top of that, this magical lodge is an excellent place for birding; if you are not already a birdwatcher, it is very easy to become one here. You can see an amazing number of different type of birds in a short time, including endangered species from the surrounding region that have found shelter here. From the saddle you can see lots of wildlife; riding is the quickest, easiest and most pleasant way to get to know this ecosystem. This is a good opportunity to learn a few words in guaraní as the guides still speak among themselves in this ancient and harmonic language.

  • Sierra de las Quijadas, San Luis Province
    We recommend you to visit the Sierra Las Quijadas National Park. Semiarid climate, few water streams and desert soil where silence seems to emerge from deep abysses. These lands, which were once the shelter to fugitive gauchos fleeing from justice, today are part of this impressive protected area. Much has been done by the wind and water to build up this region, since they have dug in the womb of the mountain range the astonishing valley of Potrero de la Aguada, where you can find huge mountain terraces, hoodoos, out-jutting rocks, cliffs and natural ridges that make this park an amazing and wonderful place.

    The deep valley, which is cut through an enormous gap of very high reddish walls, provides the ideal scenery for adventure tourism. Trekking, mountain climbing and photographic safaris are some of the visitors’ favourite activities. There are inner pathways and tracks that allow visitors to walk throughout the park.
  • Sierra de las Quijadas, San Luis Province
    Each of its corners lodges treasure troves such as ancient plants, archaeological remains of the huarpe culture (mud ovens and cooking pits) and valuable paleontological sites, due to the fact that a hundred million years ago, the area was the natural habitat of pterosaurs and dinosaurs.
    Visitors can also enjoy an outstanding natural amphitheatre, cut through by a stream and surrounded by 1,200 metre-high mounts, where the reddish hues of the soil mingle with the green hues of vegetation. The most remarkable species are the chica, the jarilla, the cactus, and the olla rocetilla, as well as the white quebracho and numerous species hanging from the high rocky walls.
    As regards to the local fauna, you can find pumas, guanacos, peccaries, maras (cavies), wild boars, ñandus, and wild donkeys, as well as condors in the high peaks, and flamingos in the lake areas and swamplands.
    During sunset, the sun lightens the ravines, drawing majestic irregular edges in the century-carved profiles, as suggestive as each corner, where everything is surrounded by an ever-lasting mysterious silence.
  • Sierra de las Quijadas – Mendoza
    In Mendoza, there is a beautiful sight of streets flanked by trees, squares and parks linked by a web of irrigation ditches which is 500 km long and waters the whole area allowing city planning even in arid zones. Land with historic tradition, Mendoza keeps many memories of San Martín's epic in the cerro de la Gloria (Hill of the Glory), El Plumerillo, San Martín Park and the museums that show documents testifying the presence in the region of this Argentinean eminent person. Starting point to enjoy adventure travel and high mountain sports like trekking, ski or rafting, Mendoza offers various circuits to go on these excursions.
  • Mendoza – Tupungato, Mendoza
    Lujan de Cuyo is located southwest of the city of Mendoza. First you will visit and taste wines at Viña Cobos winery that belong to the prestigious winemaker from California, Paul Hobbs.

  • Tupungato, Mendoza Province
    Privacy, warmth, tradition, nature, peace, adventure and fun live together in harmony in the 3.000 hectares of this estancia. This ranch, belonging to a traditional family since more than 200 years ago, is opened today to the most demanding tourists. They are served in a personalized way by its owners, bilingual hosts who share with their guests, moments of their stay. 

    The magic of the place moved the owners to build a comfortable lodge, where the art of hospitality is honoured in broad heart of the Andes in Mendoza. To the hotel and gastronomy excellence, they can add the country and outdoors activities such as horse riding, trekking, fishing and drives in four wheel drive vehicles. For the richness of its flora and fauna, the estancia is taken care as a natural reserve. “Guanaco” troops, the majestic "condor" and the slippery trout, among other things, are the only permanent inhabitants of the Andes ranch.
  • Tupungato – San Juan Province
    The next stop will be San Juan Province. The ideal drive will include a stop at Ischigualasto Park before reaching the town of Villa Union, right after crossing the border to la Rioja Province. The most accepted hypothesis gives the name "Ischigualasto" a Quechua origin, meaning "place where the moon sets“. This Provincial Park is also known as Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley), due to its otherworldly appearance. It is the only place in the world where nearly all of the Triassic period is represented in an undisturbed sequence of rock deposits. This allows for the study of the transition between dinosaurs and ancient mammals. The Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • Talampaya – Chilecito, La Rioja Province
    Talampaya Canyon is a gift from nature and our ancestors; it transcends our existence. Appreciating its majesty and scale is a humbling experience. Find the peace that you need to relax from your busy life and responsibilities in the quiet overlooks of the Canyon. Take the time to amaze at the scenery and to feel its mystical energy. Indulge in the thrilling show of light and shadow cast by the sun all along your tour; feel the sun and the wind on your face on every trail. Enjoy the unique experience of following the flight of the Condors spreading their wings to embrace the canyon walls. Dawn and dusk are special occasions to admire the unique reflections of sunlight on the red soil of Talampaya.

  • El Calafate, Santa Cruz Province
    El Calafate is the entrance to the national park, where part of the continental ices are protected, declared World Heritage by UNESCO.
    This town is situated by Lake Argentino, a green water surface covering 1,600 km2 and has great mysterious depths, like all lakes originated from glaciers. It receives its name from the small bush calafate, indigenous of Patagonia. Its fruit is a delicious berry, very good for the elaboration of jam. According to tradition, whoever eats calafate will return for more.
    El Calafate is an oasis of poplars, willows and pines at the border of the steppe. The near Glaciers National Park covers a surface of 600,000 hectares with 47 glaciers, such as the Viedma, the Moyano, the Marconi, the Upsala, the Agassiz, the Bolado, the Onelli, the Peineta, the Spegazzini, the Mayo, the Ameghino, the Moreno and the Frías, all of them located within the Atlantic basin. It is the ideal place to enjoy the magnificence of nature, and the essence of Patagonian way of life.
  • Los Glaciers National Park
    Today you could trek over the Perito Moreno Glacier, which is the star of the region. Its sidewalks are the best place to admire its beauty and its eventual breakings. Some kilometers away there is the port from where the boat departs to sail until the Perito Moreno.
    After a short walk through the woods, you will receive the instructions and special equipment to trek over the ice. Among incredible blue and turquoise streams, small lagoons, gullies, crevasses and plenty of ice formations, you will be part of one of the most amazing landscapes on Earth.
  • Los Glaciers National Park
    During the following days you could discover the beauty of the other glaciers of the National Park, undertaking an unforgettable navigation towards the Upsala Glacier , the biggest mass of ice in the National Park. It owes its name to the Swedish city of Upsala, which promoted the first glacialogical studies in the area. Part of its front is hanging in the air not even touching the water. This provokes total or partial breaks of its steep fronts, and large icebergs floating on the lake.
    After departure from Punta Bandera you will first sightsee the Upsala Glacier and its iceberg barrier. Then, landing in Onelli Bay, where you will find yourselves surrounded by forest. A typical patagonic forest where lenga and guindo are found all over covered by "old man's beard" (liquen). Crossing the forest, you will reach Onelli Lagoon, where glaciers Onelli, Bolado and Agassiz meet. Given the plenty of detachments of icebergs from these glaciers, you usually find the lagoon full of them. After embarking again, you will sail towards Spegazzini Glacier The height of its front is an outstanding characteristic, in fact, it's the highest glacier within the Park.
  • El Calafate – El Chaltén, Santa Cruz
    You’ll go today to El Chaltén through the mythic national route 40 accompanied by the Andes to your left and the typical Patagonia landscape to your right.

    El Chalten, stands in the middle of a wild and exuberant nature, creating a harmonic dialogue between the surrounding landscape. It is a place with a direct reference to the environment. Many activities such as horse back rides and trekking could be experienced in this unique place. It is important to know that El Chaltén is known as the Argentine Trekking Capital because of its various hikes through incredible landscapes where you will have the chance to see hanging glaciers, hidden lagoons
    (There are short half-day walks and all day long treks depending on your needs).
  • El Chaltén, Santa Cruz Province
    Some of the possible excursions:

    Chorrillo del Salto Short Trek: A hike along the Las Vueltas River that traverses a beautiful wood of ñires to reach the Chorrillo del Salto, a 20 meter-high waterfall.
    Río de las Vueltas Horseback ride: We leave from town, bordering the Río de las Vueltas toward the falls of Chorrillo del Salto. This traditional Patagonian outing allows panoramic views of the valley of Río de las Vueltas and the Fitz Roy Massif.
    Sailing Lago del Desierto: A motor-vehicle takes visitors from El Chaltén to Lago del Desierto, a 40 km ride with stops at interesting sites and panoramic views.
  • El Chaltén, Santa Cruz Province
    Viedma Glacier & Lake: A motor-vehicle takes visitors to the harbor on Bahía Tunel, 8 km from El Chaltén, where they board and sail through Lake Viedma’s icebergs until they reach the glacier’s wall. Two options are then available:

    Trekking on Ice: a walk using crampon footwear over the Viedma Glacier to discover its crevices, drains and other points of interest.
    Trekking on Rock: a walk over the rocky promontory, that just a few years ago was still covered by the glacier. Unique views of the glacier’s front wall and the caves in the moraine.
  • El Calafate – Punta Arenas, Chile
    During the morning you’ll be transferred to Punta Arenas in Chile where you will embark on the Australis Cruise.

    After a welcoming cocktail reception hosted by the captain and his crew, the ship departs for one of the remotest corners of planet Earth. During the night you will cross the Strait of Magellan and enter the labyrinth of channels that define the southern extreme of Patagonian. The twinkling lights of Punta Arenas gradually fade into the distance as you enter the Whiteside Canal between Darwin Island and Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego.
  • Stella Australis Cruise
    By dawn the ship is sailing up Admiralty Sound, a spectacular offshoot of the Strait of Magellan that stretches nearly halfway across Tierra del Fuego. The snowcapped peaks of Karukinka Natural Park stretch along the north side of the sound, while the south shore is defined by the deep fjords and broad bays of Alberto de Agostini National Park. You will go ashore at Ainsworth Bay, which harbors copious bird life and a colony of southern elephant seals which can sometimes be spotted from the Zodiacs.
    You will then sail west along the sound to the Tucker Islets. After lunch, you will board the Zodiacs again for a close-up view of the Magellan penguins that inhabit the tiny islands. More than 4,000 penguins use Tucker as a place to nest, give birth and nurture their chicks.
  • Stella Australis Cruise
    Overnight we sail around the western end of Tierra del Fuego via the very narrow Gabrial Channel, Magdalena Channel and Cockburn Channel. After rounding the remote Brecknock Peninsula, Stella Australis tacks eastward and enters the Beagle Channel again.
    By morning you will be entering Pia Fjord and boarding the Zodiacs for a shore excursion to Pia Glacier. After disembarking you will take a short hike to gain a panoramic view of the spectacular glacier, which extends from the mountaintops down to the sea or a longer much more difficult walk up a lateral moraine of the old Pia Glacier.
    Back onboard the ship, you will continue east along the Beagle Channel through an area called Glacier Alley. Living up to its name, the passage features a number of impressive tidewater glaciers flowing down from the Darwin Mountains and Darwin Ice Sheet on the north shore. Most of them named after European countries -- Holland, Italy, Germany, Spain and France.
  • Stella Australis Cruise
    During the early morning you will navigate the narrow Murray Channel between Navarino and Hoste islands and drop anchor at historic Wulaia Bay, one of the few places in the archipelago where the human history is just as compelling as the natural environment. Originally the site of one of the region’s largest Yámana aboriginal settlements, the bay was described by Charles Darwin and sketched by Captain Fitz Roy in the 1830s during their voyages on the HMS Beagle. This area is also renowned for its mesmerizing beauty and dramatic geography.
    In the afternoon we cruise across Nassau Bay into the remote archipelago that includes Cape Horn National Park. Weather and sea conditions permitting, we shall go ashore on the windswept island that harbors legendary Cape Horn (Cabo de Hornos). For many years it was the only navigation route between the Pacific and Atlantic, and was often referred to as the "End of the Earth." The park was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2005.
  • Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego Province
    In the morning, you will sail into Argentine waters and dock in Ushuaia, the world's southernmost city.
    Today, you could visit the Tierra del Fuego National Park. It occupies a surface of 63.000 hectares where you can find fire bushes, beech trees, ñires, box-leafed barberries, and flowers such as orchids, violets and another species. Doing this excursion you will be close to nature.
    Following a road around the mountains you will see the peat bogs and the beaver dams before arriving at Lapataia River. Once you cross the river, you will have a nice view of Laguna Verde and the upland geese and ibis that come here every summer.
  • Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego Province
    An option for today could be the Off Road Lakes excursion on 4WD trucks crossing lakes and following the National Park road.
    Within the impressive frame made up by the sea, the forests, the lakes and the mountains, Ushuaia is one of the most picturesque places in South America. At the south of the south, Ushuaia is the ideal place to meet isolated nature; the melancholic Patagonic woods, its lakes and mountains by 4x4 trucks.
    Another option we suggest for you to experience: Contemplating nature through route 3. You will reach Estancia Harberton, a traditional ranch in Tierra del Fuego. It was founded in 1886 by a reverend who came to civilize the natives of the Beagle coast. With a privileged location, it still keeps the original structure and a past that was born parallel to the city of Ushuaia. Sailing to Martillo Island, where a colony of Magellan penguins arrive each October to reproduce.

  • Cafayate, Salta Province
    Cafayate is an important tourist centre for exploring the Calchaquíes valleys, and because of the quality and originality of the wines produced in the area. It is best known for its contrast of colours and its unique geography that ranges from the mountain desert to the subtropical forest.
    There are a number of valleys and rivers within the Calchaquí Valley that have their own name, such as the Quebrada del Toro, Valle de Lerma, the Quebrada de Escoipe, the Valle Encantado at the feet of the Cuesta del Obispo, the Quebrada de las Conchas, just to name a few.
    These valleys were once inhabited by a number of tribes. Ruins of the Quilmes can be found in Tucumán. Other tribes of the area included the Calchaquíes, Tafí, and the Yokavil. Decades before facing the invasion of the Spanish colonization, the natives of these lands suffered the invasion of the Inca Empire.

    Leaving Cafayate you will finally reach Colomé, an old vineyard situated close to the Northern Andes, to the west of the Calchaqui Valleys. It was founded in 1831 by the last Spanish Governor in Salta. The main vineyards are located between 6500 and 9000 feet above sea level and are considered the highest ones on earth. This area has approximately 350 sunny days per year and the climate is perfect for growth and wine production, especially for intense red wines with a strong expression of our native mountain soil.

The 9th of July Square, as well as the Cathedral, the Cabildo, San Francisco Church and San Bernardo monastery are some of the city’s attractions. You can´t miss the MAAM museum. It was opened in Salta in 2004 and it allows visitors to fully understand and appreciate the Inca culture and heritage. The museum is located in the main square and is part of the historic centre. The High Mountain Sanctuary was discovered in 1999 in the Llullaillaco Volcano (above 6739 metres above sea level) in the Andes range. Three children bodies were found there in perfect state of preservation. These children had been offered as sacrifice to the Inca deities along with a fantastic collection of over 100 objects.

Continente blanco sin habitantes nativos; un desierto de hielo. Volcanes, montañas y lagos escondidos son testigos de días y noches que duran 24 hs. Es la reserva de agua dulce más grande del planeta, con espacios mágicos en estado virgen donde los colores fluyen imprimiéndose en la nieve, el cielo y el mar.
