CEARART: a complex for athletes of high performance and for rehabilitation See map
In late 90's, the former football club Boca Juniors, Guillermo Barros Schelotto came to Caviahue. He could barely support the foot and spent three days at the site.
But the player did not come just to take a break to the baths. Barros Schelotto ued the CEARART facilities for rehabilitation, and he managed to walk out of the place well after his stay at the resort.
It was then that these springs became more known. From there it was visited by sportsmen and racing teams throughout the country such as the rowing, cross country or cycling group. In 2002 the Boca team returned to use it.
But what exactly is and what advantages offer this center?
Caviahue is a good height: 1,600 meters. It has brought baths from Copahue an the special thermal microclimate of Caviahue-Copahue park. All these features were motivations so as the province of Neuquén decided to install there, a sports and rehabilitation center.
