Lago Ypacarai, San Bernardino
(2.7/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange your visit to Lago Ypacarai and discover more family-friendly attractions in San Bernardino using our San Bernardino vacation planner.

  • I confess that I was a bit afraid about know Olaf, by reports that I've seen around here. But where I went on a tour, the Lake had no bad smell and from what the Guide informed, this year greatly improved the water quality of the Lake, due to environmental policies and the rainfall. There are stalls of handicrafts around and the possibility of a boat ride. I don't think it's essential to know it but worth a circuit of all the nearby towns to Asuncion.

  • This is the location in which the most famous Paraguayan song of all time (in my opinion) describes. I have visited this location several times over the last decade and have always loved walking along...  more »
