Neuquén Warnings and Dangers

  • Orkaena's Profile Photo

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Some years ago I read a Michelin Guide issue where they described the National Road #22 from Chichinales Village (130 kilometers to the east of Neuquen City) until Arroyito Village (50 kilometers to the west of Neuquen City) as the most dangerous and deadly road of the world.
    I really don't know if it is an exaggeration or not, but I can tell you that's really very dangerous.
    Daily accidents, some fatals, becomes a hazard driving along those 180 kilometers crossing the Alto Valle del Rio Negro and Neuquen.
    Then, if you are driving your car here be extremely prudent and put an eye on the other drivers, sometime suicide, idiot drivers.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Very near to my new house there are a beautiful jumping horses tracks.
    Today sunday 4 of september they did a jump contest. Despite I'm not a fan of the horses (but I like it) we went to watch the competition under the cold sun of the last winter days.
    Amazing, plastic, dinamic, and beautiful movements of those formidable animals.
    There are more or less 4 or 5 contests like this along the year, and we are lucky, because this tracks are at 100 meters of our home. Nice spot.

    Fondest memory: A very young girl riding a horse named "Alem Z", achieved the first prize in its category, spectacular almost perfect animal.
