Lago Ypacarai, San Bernardino

#1 of 12 in Things to do in Cordillera Department
#Outdoor Activity, #Must See
Surrounded by green parks and the low ridgeline of the mountains, Lago Ypacarai offers a peaceful retreat within nature. This major body of water is 24 km (15 mi) in length, but only averages a depth of 3 m (10 ft). The sandy beaches and green lawns attract many tourists looking to soak up the sun and engage in recreational activity. The lake sits in close proximity to two major tourism cities, both brimming with culture, restaurants, pubs, and heritage. Don't plan to take a dip here, however, as pollution in the water makes it unsafe for swimming.

  • The Ypacarai Lake is well known for music with your name. Has boat and restrooms and snack bars on the small beach. Gets crowded on weekends. It was built a promenade and bike path along the Lake. There is a wonderful Club but needs to be associated to enter. But the real charm are the two ancient villages on the banks of it. San Bernardino and Areguá which were holiday destination of wealthy families from the capital. The 1900 season constructions are very well preserved. First-rate restaurants mainly in San Bernardino. Several of them of German food because of the settlers.

  • I've been this month in Asunción and one of the trips was visiting the Lake ypacarai Beach, I was captivated by the vastness of the Lake, but, on the other hand I was outraged with the dirt and pollution this site deserves more attention of the rulers of the country. The people of commerce around were nice and receptive. I loved

  • Famous Lake immortalized in music Recuerdos de Ypacaraí. The Blue Lake or sacred Lake, has a huge area of tracks for hiking and exercise. One of the points of the Lake offers several stalls with local handicrafts, as well as simple, but nice restaurants. Boat trips are available to tourists.
