Lago Epecuen, Carhue

(4.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Travel to the famous healing lagoon and see the deserted town claimed by its waters at Lago Epecuen. Long believed to have healing properties, the waters of the lagoon have been used in treatments since the early 19th century because of the mineral content of the water and its high salinity. In 1985, heavy rains caused the lagoon to swell, and water swallowed this small spa town. For 25 years the town was under water, but now that the water has receded you can see the eerie landscape. Using our custom trip planner, Carhue attractions like Lago Epecuen can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Beautiful and most beautiful, sunset over the Lake and the ruins, is an experience that full peace and energy at the same time, is it a desolate landscape, but the amaabilidad of its esincomparable people. Since we know it again and again.

  • The water is so salty that allows float without effort, as in the sea dead. It is a unique experience and recommended, in the province of Buenos Aires

  • Is something that you have to see! Is as being in a film, all you amazes and to its time you gives a feeling of sadness!
