  • Great place with an indescribable energy by the Majesty of nature. Provides view and food snacks typical of the region at affordable prices and with point de vente. It also has options of ride horseback riding and shopping of souvenirs and market. Ideal if you are cleared of fog. I recommend have gloves and good shelter from the cold in the area

  • honestly I loved, the climate, the natural Lagoon is beautiful, the water actually freezes you hands, lol if you leave it long in can give you hyperthermia. It is not very deep and the water is super Crystal

  • A beautiful place for those who enjoy nature and are prepared for sudden changes of temperature. Yields great photos. Have a chute on the opposite side of the lagoon where the water is very cold and also yields some great pictures.
