  • This is an absolutely great find. If you like freshwater then this place is one to choose. It's just gorgeous and so refreshing. You can find boat rentals to bring you around, some even offering water...  more »
  • The colors of the lagoon can be seen from afar. They are incredible shades of blue, very nice to visit.

  • We especially enjoyed the setting at the balneario municipal. Long (photo worthy) pier, possibility to go smoothly in and out of the lagoon, large garden for sunbathing, comedor, grocery/convenience store and picnic places.
