Laguna Mar Chiquita, Cordoba

(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.

  • The most striking is to see the fall of the sun above the horizon of the lagoon! Beautiful,! The hotel and casino Ansenuza, world-class restaurant service! And the excursion in the lagoon is incredible!

  • It is interesting to see how the place has come down, the beaches around are with wet sand that plunge your feet

  • Laguna de mar Chiquita is the Mar de Ansenuza. This gap grew to become what it is today, a sea in the Centre of the country. The town is small and simple. Very quiet and the amazing sea. Of little recourse when it was much more girl and covered my body with the healing mud from their soil. It was quite an adventure. The custom today has decreased but retains the natural beauty of the region. Excursions along the sea, also might be caught. There is an abandoned hotel, which was covered by the waters; many stories from it, especially related to Germans who came to live are woven the country fleeing a troubled Europe. Nice place to visit at any time of the year, but especially in summer. The pedestrian coastal type is very beautiful and very careful
