Villavicencios road from the city.
Excellent drive from the city to Hotel Villavicencios. It's a straight road where you can see a very dry and rocky landscape on both sides of the road and an excellent view of the "Precordillera" mountains on the left. If you keep driving you can get to Uspallata (small town in the middle of the Cordillera of Los Andes) where you can connect on the international road to Chile and the one that can take you back to Mendoza city.
This tip has the address "Precordillera de Mendoza"
