What to see
Gómez Lagoon

In the northeast of the province, near Junín, the Laguna de Gómez Natural Park is a 200-ha nature area of great flora and fauna biodiversity. In the lagoon, there is a tree-covered zone with a recreational and service area. On these resorts, you can find sand beaches and practise nautical activities. In winter, the main attraction of the lagoon is sport fishing in search of its most representative species, the silverside.

Lobos Lagoon

Lobos Lagoon is an ideal place to enjoy nature, walk along the boardwalk and practise bird watching. Boat sailing and rowing, kayaking, kitesurfing and windsurfing are other options too. Next to the lagoon, there is a quiet tourist village with tree-lined streets and places to eat, clubs and camping sites on the boardwalk. At weekends, night talks about astro-tourism are organised (book in advance at the Lobos Tourist Office). 


You can also go parachuting, paragliding and gliding in a site 11 km away from the lagoon.

San Miguel del Monte Lagoon
