This place had a large building and carpark,that looks like ours really something. There is a small fee for entry to the cave. Unfortunately from my viewpoint, the cave has little remaining evidence of Milodon, archeology, anthropology, or any other 'ology', so it's a little underwhelming. There are a lot of very recent footprints around a concrete statue of what... More

This is interesting place to see. There are multiple caves to visit and there is a very nice walking trail between them. Did expect more artifacts to see, though.

This is a great stop for families with younger children. A giant cave, the Milodon (the mammoth sloth) and lots of cool artifacts. Beautiful area.

As this cave is on the way to the Torres del Paine National Park from Puerto Natalie it is worth a visit of up to an hour. If you love caves &/ or ancient history then its a must! The walkways are easy - return via the same way to avoid rougher ground if you have difficulty walking. Theres not... More

I had read up on the milodon caves prior to visiting this area and decided to go. Easily accessible on main roads, this visit presented a nice trek and with an experienced guide, you can learn a lot. A series of three caves completes the tour. Interesting for sure!!!!

Interesting to me because I read about the Mylodon discovery in Chatwin's In Patagonia, but the site itself just isn't very impressive. Cost 5000 pesos for Extranajeros.

There are 3 caves in the park, but we visited only the largest of the the 3, the Mylodon cave. It's situated at the end of an easy 350 meters (1000 ft) walk from the parking lot. Outside the cave is a life-like statue of the ancient, giant sloth, the Mylodon, and some panels that provide background to the importance... More

We visited the cave and did all there was in a very short space of time. He cave is not particularly attractive, and poorly lit inside making walking a bit "iffy". Could give it a miss.

I visited this place as the last stop on a day of spectacular views and natural wonders. I had been told it was a good place to get a plastic sloth. One of the toilets was blocked and people had flushed it to overflowing so the whole floor was a lake of piss. I went to the entrance bloke and... More
