Admire the striking color of the water at Laguna Azul, a lake located within a dormant volcanic formation in Patagonia. Don't forget to bring a camera along, so you can take pictures of the contrast between the intense azure lake and the steep slopes of the volcano’s crater that surround it. Keep an eye out for various rare birds, including bandurrias and South American ibis, in the area.

  • It is impressive as in the middle of a plain may suddenly appear a depression which turns out to be a crater of a volcano and possessing a lagoon in its Center. Blue Lagoon or lagoon green, as it hit the light of day; Imagine a particular landscape where we (if we close our eyes and try to listen only to nature) and try to feel it will have been the place millions of years ago. Stones and volcanic sediment us around and a gorgeous and strange landscape of caves, ledges and volcanic cones. To enjoy it should abstract from desubicadas people who may be visiting the place with loud music and try that will not ruin us vision of the wonderful place because of the people who had the idea of writing his name or something stupid (to who cares and who know them) with the stones of the place at the base of the volcano close to the lagoon. Luckily, you can collaborate and disarm the names so that the landscape is natural and not touched by man.

  • A beautiful place, which stands out from the rest of the area. It is easily accessible (always in your own vehicle, no tours, up to what I know) and offers a unique view.
