Only a few kms away from town, this short river offers nice views of the lake and surrounding forests. The color of the water is just amazingly green. You can cross the bridge and then walk the shore. Go early to avoid lots of people

I've been to Rio Correntoso dozens of times. It's one of my favorite spots to visit. There are more picturesque rivers. But, there's something about this one that draws me in. Beyond it's diminutive size, the colors make it feel like it was plucked out...More

Quiet, relaxing, and neat to find out it is the world's shortest river. We took pictures from above and below, walked over the bridge and enjoyed seeing just how clear and clean the river is.

We walked along the shore from our hotel to get here. The journey was better than the destination. Ran into a group of teenage girls from Mendoza who treated my 18 year old son like a rock star. Met a dog as well that followed...More

This is a must visit. Not properly shown on the highway if driving you need directions. The short river connects lake Correntoso to Nahuel Huapi. The view is spectacular. Don't miss it.

Si tu idea es conocer todos esos lugares, lo mas conveniente, al menos para mí, es ir haciendo base en distintos lugares, mas que nada para que no te vaya el día viajando.
