With its imposing gray, reddish or blue is water; the visit starts with sunlight and heat to go through in minutes to the cold and fog; water sports are amazing!

  • Really congratulated administrators of the page because it was what convinced me to go, sadly when I get was the opposite. With regard to others comments that say that in season high is very full, as I went in season low and all was desolate, us stayed in the arriero paisa because was the only option for camping and eat; While we acomodabamos a man informed us that if we wanted to make a boat ride you should be already same because there were no people to make another trip, so we quickly went to the boat ride which was good, because along the us do with music niche group and they were telling some stories of the Lake; After finishing this tour we are left with nothing to do; all the other activities that report on the page as the ferry, banana, paragliding were not available as low season. As we toured around Lake someone offered us to handle the Jet Ski for an exaggerated price, please downgrade to see that we were their only customers but refused; really is a pity the poor administration of the Cali tourism. I only recommend visits to the Lake by a view of a beautiful landscape, but nothing else, many expectations don't get because his visit should not take more than 1 or 2 hours.
