  • Beautiful view, ideal to relax awhile or water sports. The color of the water makes a beautiful contrast with the mountains.

  • Usually when doing the ride of the tour in the Aconcagua will pass it. Will get part of the way Santiago/Mendoza, and a very nice Lake that stands out even more with the desert landscape. I think it's a pretty nice spot.
