Several colorful lakes with some spectcular flora. There are a variety of things offered at different lakes - paddling, horseback riding, hiking, camping, etc. Ask around for a couple of other lakes that are not on the beaten path.

Get bit warmer clothes, but dont get disappointed if the sun disappears for a while, it comes back in regular frequency and does no rain (outside rainy season). So you can swim as well. 5 lakes in price. Rafting or canoeing is nice. English speaking...More
