Owner description: This huge artificial lake, which resulted from the construction of the Itaipu Dam, provides a lovely setting for relaxing or fishing.

I know the itaipu company have done a lot of good with the profits from thedam. I appreciate all the facts about how much forest has been preserved, however it would have been nice to get balanced information. I also wanted to know how many towns were flooded, whether there were any casualties when the resevoir filled quicker due to stroms and flooding etc.what happened to people who didn't want to move, how many animals were captured and translocated, how many died, whether the dam has now paid for itself (it cost £25billion or similar). My questions were ignored. The tour cost over a tenner and it lasted less than an hour. It is free in paraguay.

The Brazilian side gives much better tours than the Paraguayan side.. Impressive! Good way to spend an afternoon!

It is absolutely amazing that this lake stores enough water to supply the whole world TWELVE times over every day. Yet droughts persist in nations across the planet. This lake is so huge one has to witness it to believe it.

No need to make a special trip since you can see it from the top of the dam.
I didn't hear or see anyone swimming in ot from the Brazil side of the dam, and didn't look anything special.
