Visit an important example of local engineering at Represa Rio Hondo, the site of a large dam and reservoirs. Built in 1967, the dam is 39.5 m (130 ft) tall and 2,368 m (7,769 ft) wide, supplying the area with irrigation and drinking water, hydroelectricity, and flood mitigation systems. Bring your binoculars with you to appreciate the abundant sights of birds, including herons and ducks. The reservoirs also provide ample fishing opportunities, with the warm waters home to catfish, wolf fish, and mackerel. A man-made beach offers plenty of leisure activities, including boating and water skiing.

  • not only is water coming out as the long tail of a wedding gown as well as those of the place, but it is also common to see people in river fishing and the large number of birds cormorant or chomuco.

  • I liked to know that place. It's a dam like all dams. Nothing special. Many birds of different species... that was what I liked the most.

  • Dam near the Centre of Rio Hondo with dam accessible by road. Has a spillway that was closed the day we visited. A micro Itaipú with many water birds swimming in the river.
