Dique Cabra Corral - Boating Salta - Argentina

This placid reservoir is Argentina’s largest manmade lake and Salta’s hub for outdoor activity. Any water sport one might think of, from fishing to jet skis, can be enjoyed here. For the gutsier, there is bungee jumping, puenting (a pendulum jump), and more. Feeling waterlogged? Hit the nearby trails for hiking and horseback riding.
