(4.1/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Come to Laguna Mar Chiquita, the largest naturally formed salt lake in the country. Very shallow in areas, the lake's surface ranges from 2000 to 6000 sq km (1242 to 3728 sq mi), with this fluctuation creating an area of wetland, known for its biodiversity. Take a tour around the ruins of the tourism industry that grew here between 1945 and 1980, a controversial period that saw the area linked with Nazis in the years following World War II.

  • It is a magical place for my. With much history. That support several floods. And increasingly more beautiful. That be there? go to the hotel Vienna, which is a guided tour and with luck they will meet with the ghost of room 106. Museums photography and of Sciences natural. Go to the Kennel of otters. Make a boat ride where tell you the history of mar chiquita while you browse in its shallow waters. Bathing in the water is curative for the properties of the soil. It is a large lagoon but seems sea, and it is extremely salty. Stroll along the waterfront in the evening. At night go to any of the restaurants, shows there, and if they like, eat Otter Grill which is very rich. Located 200 km from Córdoba, in car or bus will arrive in a couple of hours. not to be missed

  • Laguna de Mar Chiquita or Mar de Ansenuza, is one of five of the world's great salt lakes, is located in the town of Miramar (unique seaside village that has the lagoon) about 200 km northeast of Cordoba Capital. From Cordoba bus terminal there are buses daily (non-direct, they are stopping at several towns), the cost of the round-trip ticket is ar $215 or U$ D 14 approx. It curious and unique of this lake is that its waters are salty (much more than them of the sea, much care with drink) and however is is locked in the center of the country; the beaches are public and you can be accessed free of charge. The town has with a large offer of accommodation according to all those pockets, hotels, inns, cabins, departments, etc. The gastronomy is correct, however there are several shops where you can get regional products. Various water activities such as walks can be by boat, rent a scooter from water, water games, etc, it is a good fishing area (silverside fishing). The village is very small and not very scenic however its waterfront is very nice to cross it walking. The recommended stay is three days and two nights. Under no circumstances, I repeat! FOR ANY REASON MISS THE SUNSETS ON THE LAKE. IMPORTANT recommendation: be very careful with the Sun, to be so salty water skin much more than normal dries and the Sun can play them a dirty trick.
