Los Reyunos Dam, San Rafael

4.2
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. A visit to Los Reyunos Dam represents just the start of the adventure when you use our San Rafael trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Very beautiful panoramic views, it is to know, visit with one hour reaches, there is no structure to stay, to see something more we pay the entrance to a campsite that was to the side and there was not an open kiosk, is to go take some pictures and continue.
