  • English: The lagoon was beautiful but everything else around it was not. The place was packed, dirty, smelly, and total the 8km walk exhausting. The first 2km walk to a viewing area is worth it but the extra 2km to the swimming area is not. The facilities are non-existent (no decent bathrooms, no restaurants, no clean resting area). The idea of camping there is absurd. The only real thing you can do is see the lake and swim in it (if it's not packed), unlike what is insinuated by the paper you fill on entrance, that makes it appear as if there are many more activities to do. Spanish: Lagoon was beautiful, but everything else to her was not around. The place was full, dirty, smelly, and the grueling 8 km total walk. The first 2 km walk up to the viewpoint is worthwhile, but the additional 2 km to the area where it is allowed to swim aren't. The facilities are non-existent (no decent bathrooms, no restaurants, no clean resting area). The idea of camping there is absurd. The only activity that can really be is to see Lake and swim in it (if it is not filled), unlike what implies the role which is filled in the entry, which makes believe that there are more activities on the inside.

  • Spectacular! Very well kept. The road up is dirt. To get to the area where you can swim; There are 4 kilometers on foot (more or less 1 hour of walking). It's worth the time. Water contains sulfur.

  • It is the third time I visit the place and I love camping is excellent, see the stars at night and listen to all kinds of animals, this month were changing prices, so here command photos, we arrived in a truck under (Toyota yaris 2015) but go with care do in the last 5km, according to a villager told us that the best time is from March to may since there is no rain, the most beautiful thing is to see the stars at night and they can not see if it rains or is cloudy, apart that when it rains the street gets very muddy and the truck can slide, is very safe since it is a protected reserve and entries are not supported after 4 for safety (4.2 km) walk the 2 km there is a rest area and to the 2. 4 km after initiating the tour is a viewpoint which is not allowed to swim only rest to follow the path, arriving you can rent tents, you must ask at the entrance if they have not rented them already, in but there are filtered water I recommend carrying plenty of water and food, there are barbecues or they can also stay in one little cabin, in not sold anything, unless they want to return those 4 km to buy something at the store from outside, it is a beautiful place and there is no phone signal and much less to load something, is a place to disconnect completely from the technology and be 100% with the naturale za
