  • Beautiful Lake, will love from anywhere you are. It is only a few blocks away from the center of Villarrica and do not need to take mobilization to get there.

  • It is a very beautiful Lake, you can enjoy the day with the family and have a pleasant evening, it is not shocking but it is nice.

  • Went to the beach to the Centre of Pucón in the summer of 2018. Clean and cold water. Was a nice heat to 26 degrees, crowded beach. Felt in Búzios RJ and the kids loved it.
