  • It is a beautiful place, the colour of the water is impressive. It looks like a sea. Is a Lake of 29 km. something incredible. The Lake Epulafquen and Paimún are very beautiful also. The view of the volcano is wonderful. The gravel road is quite complicated by what should go have truck, since Auto is difficult the road, which is long enough. Are hours of walking on those roads of gravel road

  • The keyword is: book the excursion of the catamaran leaves at 11, 13, 15 and 17 hs. But to go to the of 11 must leave very early from San Martin, given that it takes about 2:30 hours travel (much about gravel), and 15 pm schedule is usually full because take it local tourism with business and leisure enterprises. That said, the view is amazing, the clear water and beautiful travel. Not to be missed if you come here.

  • I am a person that I don't like nature or stay in it, imagine as I returned I told my husband that I wanted to go there to camp. It truly is a place like no other where you can appreciate the volcano Lanús and the beauty of the surrounding. We went down to the second Lake (Paimún, if I remember) and is the same paradise; my children played at the Lake and we enjoyed a beautiful day in family is not justified to pay hike the rp 61 is gravel, but very good.
