This is a place of mystery! The back drop of the wind formed mountains is spectacular and the area of el Golfo is one of our favourite places to dine. If you are in the area to see el Golfo the salt flats etc then you must visit here.

The scene is fascinating. The colors are fantastic. It pays to come and see. 30-40 pictures and that's it.

This is a very impressive natural attraction offering fantastic views over the ocean and the coast. The location is spectacular. The "Lago Verde" is green and in contrast with the color of the ocean a few meters behind. Don't forget to take your camera!

We decided to drive to El Golfo to see Laguna Verde. It's quite a spectacle. El Golfo is only small but appears to be full of street cafes and restaurants. Laguna Verde attracts a lot of visitors which I'm sure helps to fill the restaurants

Parked in the free car park which is on your left as u drive in to El golfo. Walked approximately.25 km to see the green lake. This was interesting but the coastline itself on a day when the sea was relatively rough was spectacular. We were too early for lunch but the restaurants looked as though there was a good... More

Nice spot for taking picutures. Go here just before the sun set to take the best pictures. We were not able to be here in the end of the day, caching the colors will be more difficult than. We loved the spot with all the differences in the colors around you.

This is a very popular spot so there are lots of tourists, it is just a short walk from the car park on a slightly rough path so accessible for most, a bit hard to push a pushchair but with 2 adults is just managable, only problem could be the hoards of people on the track. When you get to... More

Visiting El Lago Verde is a relatively short excursion, especially since we were staying in an apartment right next to it. From the parking lot, it's a very short walk up to the viewing point. From that, you have a nice view of the lake and the bay. The views are very nice. The lake is, well, just a green... More
