Embalse El Carrizal - Boating Mendoza - Argentina

During the hot Mendoza summers, El Carrizal becomes a common lakeside getaway for local residents. The large reservoir, formed by the El Carrizal hydroelectric dam, is found only 60 kilometers (37 mi) from the city. The lakeshores are lined with campgrounds, rental cabins, and 4-star hotels, while the lake is filled with trout, windsurfers, waterskiers, and sailboats. Jet skis and motorboats are common, as this is the only lake near Mendoza that allows motorized navigation. The Festival del Pejerrey draws large crowds in November. Bus passengers must first travel to Rivadavia before transferring to local transport.
