Rocío Ferraro



Emplazado entre cerros y quebradas de las sierras grandes de la provincia de Córdoba, a una altitud de 1450 Msnm, se encuentra el pequeño poblado de La Cumbrecita. Un rincón inmerso en un bosque de pinos combinado con casas de estilo alpino que preserva el cuidado de la naturaleza, la tranquilidad y la calidad de vida de sus habitantes.

La Cumbrecita tiene calles serpenteantes llenas de flores, atravesadas por bosquecillos, arroyos con agua cristalina, ríos con playas de arena brillante de minerales y aguas doradas, cascadas y pinares en laderas de ensueño.

En La Cumbrecita se respira aire libre de contaminación: fue declarada Reserva Natural de Uso Múltiple y es el único pueblo peatonal de la Argentina. Los vehículos se estacionan en la entrada por un bajo costo, y los senderos de La Cumbrecita se transitan a pie. La llaman “pueblo de cuentos”.

Horarios: salvo indicación contraria, todas las inmersiones se inician el viernes a las 10:00 (10 am) y terminan el domingo a las 13:00 (1 pm). Si tienes que llegar un poco más tarde o salir un poco antes, lo comprendemos.

El coste no incluye viajes, alojamiento, comidas u otros gastos.


FTHub elige alojarse en el Hostel Planeta Cumbrecita, un antiguo chalet de estilo centroeuropeo ubicado en el corazón del pueblo, equipado con amplias habitaciones compartidas o privadas y cocinas totalmente equipadas.

El centro de La Cumbrecita con proveedurías, bares y restaurantes está a menos de 300 metros del alojamiento.

El Hostel tiene servicio de desayuno incluido y una atención especialmente cálida y dedicada. Ropa blanca, Wi-Fi, quincho, parrilla, y mucha naturaleza. Las habitaciones cuentan con baño privado completo.

Contacto y reservas: +54 9 3546 41-9581. Avisa que vas a la formación FTHub para conocer descuentos y formas de pago.

También puedes elegir cualquier otro alojamiento de tu agrado DENTRO del pueblo de La Cumbrecita y cercano al Hostel, para facilitar la puntualidad y comodidad para la dinámica de la formación.

Para ello, será conveniente que elijas un sitio que se ubique dentro del pueblo, es decir luego del acceso del puente peatonal a La Cumbrecita, y no los alojamientos de los alrededores del ingreso al pueblo, ya que las distancias y los tiempos de encuentro con el grupo te llevarán más tiempo.
