About this trip

 

These 12 hectar El Chato ranch is part of a much former livestock farm that is not in use anymore. The Arias Family who own the ranch have been promoting tourism in this area of Santa Cruz for over 20 years now.  At the ranch you have time to walk between the trees and search for the giant tortoises that prefer to stay close to the small lagoons. Afterwards you will also visit the lava tubes. These impressive underground tunnels were formed when the outside skin of a molten-lava flow solidified. When the lava flow ceased, the molten lava inside the flow kept going like a river, emptying out of the solidified skin and thus leaving tunnels.

We had a wonderful time, even though my boyfriend got sick on the bus ride (motion sickness). The guides and driver were very friendly and helpful. The trip up to the top was tougher than we anticipated, but with the expertise of Claudia and the rest of the team we arrived in good shape at the top. Luckily the snow started to melt when we arrived, so we could see all the nice colors and we also got to visit The Red Valley. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone who is in a good physical shape. We had a great time.
We had a wonderfull trip and a great guide.
