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.
