Visit the reservoir at Potrerillos Dam for a bit of outdoor adventure. Take some time and rent a kayak, wind board, or small boat to explore the water. You have plenty of options for water sports in the area, but keep in mind that motors are not allowed. You can swim here, so consider a dip to admire the views of the mountains from within the emerald waters. Bring some food to take advantage of the barbecue pits along the reservoir. Alternatively, try to catch your meal at the fishing spots. Our Mendoza online tour planner makes visiting Potrerillos Dam and other Mendoza attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Beautiful location, beautiful look. Recommend to bring water when it is in summer and independent of everything protect from the sun (that even with cold winds burning MTO!)
