Lovely to walk along the lakeside.the best place to walk, bike, run, boat, talk, and drive by! Not too crowded on the weekdays which is the only times that I go.

The lake is beautiful and ideal for pictures! We also had a picnic near by! I want to return during summer, the lake is has many activities to offer. We were surprised by the number of kite-surfers at the lake.

A great place to go and spend the day, as it is only about 50 kms from Mendoza City.
Beautiful dam with clear water for fishing or boating.
The mountain background is unbeatable.
You can also rent a cottage for the weekend.
Water is cold for swiming though.

Very quiet, peaceful setting. Still, clear, calm water. The power of the Andes mountains and of water, combined in one. Love dique potrerillos!

I visited 2 sides of the dam, one where you could climb a rock and have an amazing view, and the part where the company Argentina rafting is situated. The first one was in the morning and since there was no wind the whole lake was like a mirror. It was sooooo beautiful. And perfect to take pictures! At the part of Argentina Rafting the water was so light blue, like a tropical island. Definitely a must-see when you are in Mendoza. And why not have a picknick or a typical asado?
