Lago Ypacarai, San Bernardino

#2 of 7 in Things to do in Cordillera Department
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.

    Ypacarai song brought us to visit this lake located in San Bernardino, the first thing which we call attention is the neglected state of the village, in the same Lake the abandonment is total, there are some sites selling handicrafts, but all offer the same thing. in a couple of sites is cotton with hand embroidery that make a difference. You can make a tour of 30 minutes in a comfortable 20,000 Guarani vessels. To reach the site, there are several options of transportation people, but there is also the option to request a private transfer; between the visit and the travel of about 4 hours. There are several places of regional food along the road to eat something.

    I saw some pictures of Lake on sites and saw that he was very close to Asuncion, so we decided to go and have no regrets. I was really cold, we arrived at the time of the sunset and the view is the most beautiful thing. In fact, looking closely, you can see that the edge of the Lake is dirty, but the larger landscape is so beautiful that even I was catching me at it. Was a wonderful wind, a super nice weather and my father and we took great shots and we enjoyed the sunset has a few souvenir shops around and also took a look.

Where to stay in San Bernardino

The main urban area that lines the eastern shore of Lake Ypacarai features a fair set of hotels for visitors to San Bernardino. Either on the main thoroughfare, Av. Guillerno Naumann, or between it and the lake, a number of hotels new and old offer rooms overlooking the lake and the attractive commercial strip. Alternatively, consider staying in one of the many rental apartments in town--often second or holiday homes of those who live in Greater Asuncion to the west.
