Salto Grande Hydroelectric Dam, Concordia

#2 of 6 in Sightseeing in Concordia
Dam Nature / Park
Marvel at the modern technology and engineering of Salto Grande Hydroelectric Dam, a large dam that provides over 70 percent of Uruguay's energy and 10 percent of Argentina's. Built under the auspices of a historically important cooperation by the two nations, the dam straddles the Uruguay River between Salto and Concordia, and represents the first undertaking of its kind in Latin America. A guided tour from a knowledgeable docent gives insight into the structural ingenuities of engineering employed here, and as well as the dam's crucial role for both nations' infrastructures.

  • The Salto Grande dam is a binational power plant between Uruguay and Argentina. The visit is free, with explanatory video, fast talk with the models of the plant's operation and after visiting the facilities. Guides are good and know the subject. The Tour Bus is made of facilities and has a very good overview of the facilities, then one can know internally the plant. Worth the visit.

Where to stay in Concordia

Most of Concordia's accommodations are in its southern neighborhood, where upscale hotels provide good rooms close to the river. The abundance of space just north of the main city has led to a number of resort-style hotels opening and expanding into the landscape, offering a range of facilities like private pools, onsite restaurants, and bars. Budget-conscious travelers are well catered for here, with plenty of hostels and rental apartments located in the main residential areas of the city.
