Let yourselves go and get rid of all travel guides. Don’t follow the herd, shave that wool and be a wolf. Look for the sensation of doing something different, get your bag packed and jump on the bus and ask a ‘boleto’ for Cuesta Blanca, a town located in the department of Punilla in the province of Córdoba. A 50km ride from Córdoba capital following the ‘Camimo de las Altas Cumbres’ takes us to this small community parted in half by the San Antonio River.
It’s this stream that makes this place so special by providing smaller natural pools with crystalline water and clean glittering pink sand beaches both perfect for relaxing the mind and body as these waters cure,… some local told us.
Cuesta Blanca has the privilege to find itself enclosed in a mountain forest with its many autochthonous trees, grasses and native vines with beautiful shapes and colourful leaves and flowers. The native fauna gives us 180 varieties of wild birds, iguanas, rainbow trout, weasel, fox, otter and many others. The wonderful hike along the riverside, from our empty camping site to one of the further beaches, Playa de los Hippies, is a reason on itself to visit this beautiful place.
After some days you will be revitalized and might be ready for a whole lot more of traveling but maybe never again able to let the wool overgrow the wolf inside you! 😉
– Take a good book and enjoy the out of this world feeling
– Binoculars are a must as many smaller beautifull coloured birds fly by and are dificult to see with bare eyes
– Eco-camping is situated a bit further from the center just next to the river, offers bbq, shared showers, has a small shop to buy drinks and delights their visitors with nightly frog and bird chants.
