Nice reservoir, but not worth making a trip just for this. Better to combine with trip to the hot springs or to Aconcagua from Mendoza

It's, well, a reservoir. Large, to be sure, and motors are strictly forbidden. Lots of wind-surfers and deep blue water, but nothing that cannot be seen in many other parts of the world.

Unexpectedly beautiful! The color of the water is almost turquoise! It can get windy and NO swimming. To avoid crowds (and find parking easier), try going on weekdays.

Based on Instagram beautiful shots we visited the Dam. It's pretty but super windy and nothing much to do. It's simply a photo op and back in the car. Don't go there as a destination.

This is a must if you go to Mendoza from Santiago in Car. You have to go back by south of Mendoza and see Potrerillos Dam. Nice place for photos and if you have time you can do some aquatics sports.

I haven’t seen anyone swimming or even practicing any activity at the Potrerillos Dam. Perhaps you should try Termas de Cacheuta. At the Mendoza river there are some activities, such as canoeing, and rafting
