Fodor's Review

Heading toward the Andes you come across this nature reserve covered with a forest of petrified tree trunks imprinted with dozens of leaf and animal fossils. Nearby is a cave beneath a stone overhang that housed indigenous peoples thousands of years ago. Inside are some cave paintings by the Molle people.
