This is such an enormous lake and went around and on it in various excursions! The colours of the water at different times of the day and the beautiful scenery of the surrounding mountains make it a great place.

So calm and beautiful, it's a must see for just to stay there and see the nature, relaxing. But nothing more than a visit for an hour.

We could see this lake beside the runway when we landed at the airport. We also had a view of it from our hotel (Los Canelos). The water is the most incredible shade of turquoise.
