  • It is located near the city of San Juan, you can reach there with the urban buses traveling with the climb. It has a large camping area, shaded, bathed, and pebble beaches for baths. Very quaint.

  • Little exploited for tourism and one of the two free places to bathe in the dike. Beautiful place, although being little exploited there is little shade (some low trees) and sometimes there may be some rubbish. But the municipality puts in a bath and there are puestito of drinks. To spend the day (morning or afternoon) and freshen up a bit of the heat is very good! Also the view is beautiful and if you are lucky you can have a lot of tranquility!
