  • It is a reserve with trails for walking and power down to the beach of the Argentino.Esos Lake trails are bordered by margaritas, a beauty you have the option, rent binoculars to identify different birds and animals you will be viewing lots of pink flamingos

  • The truth to enter expenditure is fairly high ARS$ 250 for foreigners at the time of going and say is not worth it, very neglected, there is bird watching, but they are the same as you see on the other side of the fence, not worth spending
