“Impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

One of the largest man-made lakes in the world, the Itaipu lake impresses one at first sight. Take a boat tour and you will not regret.

“Over-priced proaganda tour.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

I know the itaipu company have done a lot of good with the profits from thedam. I appreciate all the facts about how much forest has been preserved, however it would have been nice to get balanced information. I also wanted to know how many towns were flooded, whether there were any casualties when the resevoir filled quicker due to stroms and flooding etc.what happened to people who didn't want to move, how many animals were captured and translocated, how many died, whether the dam has now paid for itself (it cost £25billion or similar). My questions were ignored. The tour cost over a tenner and it lasted less than an hour. It is free in paraguay.

“Lake Itaipu - Water for the World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

It is absolutely amazing that this lake stores enough water to supply the whole world TWELVE times over every day. Yet droughts persist in nations across the planet. This lake is so huge one has to witness it to believe it.
