Rio Cuarto is strategically located in Cordoba Province in Argentina, about 3 hours from the capital city of Cordoba. While it has many of the usual museums and Churches and shopping streets that tourists look for, there is something else in Rio Cuarto. To be specific, there are 10 huge craters near the city that were made by objects crashing down from outer space, probably a meteoroid. To see the craters and other sights in and around the city, you will need to get a car for hire in Rio Cuarto.
The three museums are the most famous of all the tourist attractions here. You must visit the Aerospace Technological Museum, the Rail Museum and the Historic Regional Museum that dates back to 1945. Assuming you have got a car for rent in Rio Cuarto, the Rio Cuarto (river) provides plenty of opportunities for recreation and camping. Parque Sarmiento has an artificial lake (Villa Dalcar Lake) where you can take motorboat rides and do some fishing. You will enjoy General Roca Square, the ecological urban park, and the grand structure of the Palacio Municipal.
Put on your tin-foil hats, because these are no ordinary tourist attractions. These are huge craters created on the surface because something big crashed down from outer space 10,000 years ago. There are ten big teardrop shaped craters. "The Twins" are the most famous of these ten, and you can find these 2 mile long craters at La Valentina farm, located about 25 miles north-east of Rio Cuarto.
