Lake Angostura is very close to the city... maybe less than 10 miles. However, due to the insane traffic, it could take you up to 1 hr to get there. There are 2 alternate routes: one is the classic highway with the traffic and the second is going via Santivañez which is probably a bit less in traffic but still an hr away. There are several things you could do while at the lake, there are some restaurants right before arriving to the dam on the right-hand side of the road. The biggest one is one called Laguna del Eden with some attractions but I hated the atmosphere and the food was terrible. The other smaller restaurants before arriving at the lake are a little better but I best recommend the restaurants that are at the shore of the lake in the western part of it. To get there you need to turn right before arriving at the lake heading towards Tarata. there is a little bridge on the right of the road. Take that road and head up the hill; once you start descending you will hit several restaurants that serve a fairly good trout or "pejerrey". These places offer boat rides on the lake with varying qualities... none of them are terribly good but they are not very expensive either. If you take the alternate road through Santivañez you will arrive pas the restaurants so you would need to take a left to get to them. Also nearby, there is also the Hotel Hacienda Caluyo where you could spend the day, have lunch or event stay for the night... (better call to find out if they are open). Driving around the lake is quite nice. there is a rock climbing site before arriving to Tarata. Tarata is probably one of the nicest little towns in Cochabamba so don't miss driving by and maybe planning a short visit there. Also, and probably the most interesting place near Tarata is the "Bosque de Algarrobos de Tiataco" which are woods of carob trees. Apparently is one of the biggest and oldest in South America; you can find it in google maps. Again, many different little nice activities which could be considered if you have a spare day in Cochabamba. Best if you have your own transportation... would be difficult by local transportation.

I went by bicycle. The traffic is lunatic but the biggest hazard was the air pollution. I couldn't find the place photoed above. All approaches to the lakeside were difficult dirt roads. Not at all the resort I was !read to expect.

However it you could get to the lakeside and find a bar the mountains would form a fine backdrop to the scene. Nice place to read a book?

A lively lagoon, with lots of people on the weekends. I enjoyed visiting with my family, we ate trout for lunch and walked across the dam. The lagoon is a bit outside of Cochabamba so it makes a nice weekend outing, that being said, it may be a bit difficult to visit without your own car. It’s extremely festive on weekends, we saw a dance group practicing, vendors, boat rides, and a mobile bar. I would recommend if you are spending a bit of time in Cochabamba.

A great place for a day trip or even half-day trip from Cochabamba. Cheap and decent restaurants and also you can muck about on boats - well, my brother-in-law brought along his own in tow. There are also paddle boats for kids and (weekends only) you can strap yourself in to a cable chair and cross the river while enjoying a great view from above. Best to head for home well before sundown as the traffic gets pretty bad.

It is located outside the city, more or less half an hour away from car, but you can reach there by taxi or there are some buses that goes there for a minimum wage. The place is clean, the restaurant name is Lago del Eden and it has good fish food, also you have to try the ¨Garapiña¨ traditional beverage. It has small boats to mess around.
It is a place to meet if you visit Cochabamba.

We visited la Laguna Angostura during the week for lunch and it was quiet and very nice! The food specializes in trucha which is the local fish. Prepared both on the grill and baked. Fish was fresh and delicious. Definitely a must see if you are going for both scenic and dining experience!

A short drive to get away from the hustle and bustle of Cochabamba. Lunch by the water was a nice peaceful setting. The park is a bit dated though. a touch up of paint would go a long way!
