Why not spend the day at a lake?
The most beautiful ones are to be found in the east of the country, especially for those who love water sports such as jet ski, water ski, windsurf, sailing.
“Laguna Merín”. This resort in the Department of Cerro Largo, just 20 kilometres from the city of Rio Branco lies on the lake of the same name. It has been declared World Fresh Water reserve by the FAO. An extremely quiet place, with good sandy beaches, lots of shade and cottages with coloured roofs.
Laguna del Sauce. With its 5000 hectares is the largest fresh water reserve in Maldonado. It is extremely deep: around 7 metres near its shores and up to 13 metres in the centre. Suitable for all water sports except those engine-driven, and there is also good fishing.
