The marble caves are such a nice place and the water is so clear, it's really breathtaking being there. All stones and mountains there are out of marble. Take a tour or experience the marble caves for yourselves in kayak. It's definitely something you should have seen.

I agree with everything said (It's marvelous and spiritual and beautiful), but if you can find a way to kayak there, or go without a tour, it'll be a more enjoyable experience. I found it rather sterile to be inserting and removing ourselves from caves in a dinghy with 6 other people. Perhaps it would be more dangerous but I... More

These caves are absolutely incredible! Best option is a small boat from one of the many small owners/agencies in Puerto Rio Tranquilo or Puerto Sanchez. We opted for a trip from Bahia Mansa which is about 5 K to the south of Puerto Rio Tranquilo just off the main road. (However, the 1 kilometer track down to the harbour needs... More

Best appreciated on a day with blue skies and no wind. But awesome anytime time of the year. By canoe or kayak you should be aware of the rapidly changing weather in Patagonia. The wind and waves can pick up very quickly. Treat this lake like the ocean. The three and a half hour trip from Coyhaique was worth it!... More

Like my review for the Catedral! This place is gorgeous but average! I've heard that you can even organize a wedding here during the lowtide! I love the clear blue water though!!!

The main problem in our visit was the weather, windy and cold. Besides that, very beautiful place. Very far away from everything else, but very, very beautiful

Short kayak or motorboat ride to natural marble formations just offshore in South America's second largest lake. The water is a bit cold in summer, but is a striking clear blue. The marble caves are beautiful, you can boat into them, and I've never seen anything like them.
