Officials from the Secretariats of Tourism and Energy and Mining toured the La Colorada Chica or Laguna Larga salt flats, with the aim of continuing to develop the “Salt Tourism” tourism product in La Pampa.
The Undersecretary of Tourism Development, Florencia Stefanazzi, and the Director of Mining and Inspections, Cristian Buss, visited the town of Jacinto Arauz to design a circuit and add the La Colorada Chica salt flats to the current tourist offer.
This particular resource is located 30 kilometers south of Jacinto Arauz and is one of the salt mines in production that has the most impact due to the red color of its waters; This is due to small crustaceans called brine shrimp, which stain the waters reddish-pink, producing a special effect that is beautiful and attractive to visitors.
Official and official, accompanied by municipal staff and Miguel Rodríguez – one of the pioneers in tours and excursions in the area for decades – visited the salt flats and the Secretary of Government, Ricardo Negrín.
The undertaking has the support of the municipality to promote tourism as an activity of sustainable development and generator of local employment.
With the launch of this visit, the salt tourism offer in the southeast of La Pampa is expanded, also complementing other tourist resources such as the legacy of Favaloro, Colonia San Rosario, the history of Los Valdenses, among others.
From the Ministry of Tourism, it is intended to work on the enhancement of resources, working with authorized providers according to current regulations and generating a sustainable development of the activity throughout the Pampas territory.
