  • us went to know this attraction, the truth that not me seemed the great thing, the Lake and the landscape is cute but the costanera is sees a little desolate, Franta to the Lake you got some hotels and some houses large, but all is very arid as saw in another comment, will be because is an area where there are many lots.
