  • It is an accumulation of artificial water of a curious depth, because deep is just steps away from getting into the water. There are many hosting sites, but the most accessible is the affiliate business media as Confamdi. Tours are available by boat, making tours of no more than 1 hour. The climate is mild and very rich. It is popular for walks of weekend and is very near Buga or access from Wolf Warrior

  • Beautiful scenery. The lake is home to wind sports like kite surfing and wind surfing. It doesn't get crowded much so there's plenty of room to foam around in your favorite water craft. The weather is often cloudy and a bit in the cooler side with the head wind, but overall, it's a great spot for water sports and scenery.
  • Breathtaking views! Perfect to be relaxed and chill. Temperature is perfect. I went there during summer in August 2016. Love this place!! There's a recreation area around where you can stay and enjoy swimming pools and nice entertainment. Last time I danced Zumba, Merengue, Bachata, Vallenato, Cumbia. Great place for a low budget and for all family. You can practice surfing, and theres an area where you can camp and hotels where you can stay. I live in cold weather so make sure to bring a slight jacket or hoodie.
