  • To turn from Route 3 and stay with your mouth open: actually very blue, and in the middle of a lava field. Wonderful!

  • It is a beautiful lagoon in the crater of a volcano, you can get to the coast. It is very beautiful and nice since it is protected from the wind. The only downside is that there is no public transport to get so you have to go by private car or a remis, or taxi, making very expensive visit.

  • The place is about 40 minutes from Rio Gallegos, is a crater of a dormant volcano for thousands of years that was filled with water, has enough trouble and down to the part of the water from where you leave the car, is not for the elderly although disf can also be route of the landscape and the peace from above. The place is not big deal, happens as there is nothing in Rio Gallegos is a nice alternative, I do not I call both the attention because it is similar to any quarry from the province. Buenos Aires, people around here don't know them and the lagoon seems something new. Finally, I like to spend the evening and removed but it is not a place to go more than once (for my).
