I went here today. The guy told me the lake was prohibitted to use due to danger concern. He suggested the other small lake behind the hill. There was also a small pool for the same.

Absolutely no need to book an organised tour. Just get the 'micro' on the Agenda Universitaria in front of the stadium. We saw people arriving with the taxi and they were asked to pay twice the price we paid.

Great place to relax, temperature of the water is perfect and the surrounding mountains make a spectacular view

Really worth while to go there. Easy to reach by local bus. Still not spoiled by commerce. Fantastic setting with mountains all around. The water is a bit warm to swim a lot, but pleasant enough. Take lots of protection against the sun.
