  • It is worth visiting it. It is about 20 kilometers from the city. We were on a bus of line, number 29, take you for Av. del Libertador, and drops you off right in the wall of the dam. On day of week, approximately makes it every 30 minutes. The landscape is beautiful, is located in a mountainous natural environment. Your view is very nice. There was no people because we were out of season. There is a kiosk that sells drinks and fast foods. There are also chemical toilets. Very nice pictures can be drawn.

Where to stay in San Juan

Within Av. Circunvalacion sits the main bulk of San Juan's places to stay. Plush, modern high-rises tower over the central neighborhood, while older, more traditional hotels line the edges of the main urban parks and plazas. Budget-friendly options come in the form of unassuming, converted residential blocks and rental apartments. If you head outside of the ring road, you'll have a choice between relaxing lodgings on the estates of local wineries, and a good selection of back-to-basics campgrounds.
