La Brava Lagoon and its Ancient Mountain Range
On the shores of La Brava Lagoon, lies the village of Laguna Brava, a paradise to enjoy sports and outdoor life.
“There was a time when the shores of the lagoon were inhabited by an Indian tribe of gentle and hard-working men and very beautiful women” goes the legend of Laguna Brava. At present, after such a long time has passed, this village invites visitors to spend a day in contact with nature, surrounded by the Balcarce Mountain Range, some of the most ancient on the planet.
La Brava Lagoon is a water mirror rich in wildlife which occupies 420 hectares and whose depth ranges between 4 and 6 meters. The village may be visited with the simple aim of spending a day in the open air, combining water and mountains. Or else, visitors can make the most of the tour and perform various activities offered at the complexes located on the lagoon coast.
Following the access from Route 226, visitors will arrive in Ruca Lauquen, a seven-hectare complex located on the southern coast of the lagoon, which offers cabins, a lodge and a spacious camp-site area with grills. Open all year round, this spot is chosen by lovers of nautical sports, such as water skiing, windsurfing or wakeboarding.
In the surroundings, visitors may go hiking across the mountains, or fishing from the shore of the lagoon or on a boat. They can also enjoy the fresh waters of the swimming-pool. In addition to accommodation services, Ruca Lauquen has a convenience store and a restaurant surrounded by a shady grove and a neatly kept garden, where the aged rosebushes and the hydrangeas stand out.
On the other side of the lagoon, Carlos and Nadia welcomed us kindly at Piedra Naranja. Although the first temptation for our eyes were the hammocks, a multiadventure program awaited us to enjoy the soil, the water and the air.
This complex offers services with a bilingual guide to practice paragliding for two people, kayaking, windsurfing, hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.
Sunsets at La Brava Lagoon and Mountain Range are a must at this spot where visitors can always enjoy homemade gastronomical delicacies.
