Amazing place to enjoy the surrounding landscape and if you're brave enough swim in the lake. boat tours are 30 min long. the white sand beach is amazing given that the lake is at 3000 msnm

If you travel to Playa Blanca, try doing it on a non-weekend day as on the weekends this place is packed and due to this, you end up missing the whole point of visiting this site. Tip: for more peace and quiet, go to the...More
