70 Km north of Buenos Aires city taking national route 9 you'll find a town called 'Ingeniero Romulo Otamendi' and it's national reserve Otamendi. This town lies between the cities of Escobar and Campana.

The best and safest way to get there is to take your car. Never use public transportation like bus or (specially) train because you'll be probably robbed.
