DescriptionMost people know this place as a natural lake, however 'Lake Calima' is actually the largest reservoir in Colombia. The body of water is also one of the largest in America, with a total area of almost 20 square kilometers. You will begin your journey by stopping for a quick breakfast, before then heading over to the reservoir. The construction of the reservoir was carried out as a part of a hydroelectric project to generate energy for the CVC (Regional Autonomous Corporation of Valle del Cauca). Years later, the lake would become a strong tourist attraction, since its winds are very favorable for the practice of water sports such as windsurfing, water skiing, kite surfing, sailing, and more. These are the best winds of America for the enjoyment of these sports, and the third best in the world. Once at the reservoir, you will take a ferry or speed boat around the lake. After you spend the morning and afternoon at the lake, you will head over to the national reserve of Yotoco. This is a space for environmental research and education, and consists of one of the last remnants of protected forest of the western mountain range. This gives it very important value from a of conservation and biodiversity point of view. Here, you will get to enjoy the sights of howling monkeys and an enormous amount of fauna and flora. Following a beautiful day on the lake and the natural reserve, you will head back to the city of Cali.
