Things to do in Mendoza

  • Puente-del-inca Puente-del-inca Mendoza, Argentina
    Puente del Inca means the Inca's bridge in Spanish and is a natural bridge that spans the Vacas River, which is a tributary of the Mendoza River in Mendoza province, Argentina.  There is a nearby hot springs of the same name and scientists surmise that the frigid temperatures of the ice age came into contact with the hot springs and created the formation.  Sometime during that period, the ice that covered the river, was bombarded by avalanches of rocks, snow and dust.  This mixture became a path for sulfurous water and eventually petrified the mass and when the snow and ice melted, the bridge was left of the thousands of years of debris.  One of the most famous visitors to this natural phenomenon was Charles Darwin, who made drawings of the stalactites that existed here.  In the early 20th century, a resort was built here, so that their guests could use the hot springs in hopes of curing maladies; with another spa down the river at Cacheuta.  An old train station still stands reminding present visitors of the many people that came to this natural wonder so many years ago hoping to cure their ailments.  The station was one of the last stops in Argentina before continuing on to Chile, and the tunnels that went under the great Andes Mountains; it was called the Transandine Railway and went out of business in 1984.  Since then the station has been retroverted into a mountaineering museum called the Museo del Andinista, started by a group of mountain climbers from Rosario in hopes of showing the cultural history of the Aconcagua area.
