Dam Nature / Park
View the powerful Los Reyunos Dam and take part in outdoor activities along its reservoir. This embankment dam on the Diamante River was constructed entirely of stone and clay to keep costs down. At 136 m (440 ft) high, this Argentinian structure is a visible landmark along the river, and sits only 35 km (22 mi) from the city. Take in panoramas of this manmade wonder, which works to generate hydroelectricity. If you're looking for adventure, head to the nearby fishing club on the resevoir's western shore where you can hike, windsurf, canoe, and fish.

  • We got there with a group who went out of the San Rafael bus terminal. The journey is approximately 1 hour. The collective leaves you at the door of the premises in the reservoir. Access is free, however for the different activities offered are payable. There is a floating swimming pool on the banks of the reservoir, you can dive, kayak, canopy, among other activities. It has sanitary facilities and a pretty equipped supply. Collective schedules provide them in the terminal.
