Aguas Termales de Azacualpa

Posada el Cortijo del Lago
All in all, not a bad deal for the price. The grounds are the highlight here: right on the lake, carpeted with pine needles, with canoes...
Casa de Puros
A martini and cigar bar, where preppy people go to chill. It’s in front of the Casa Presidencial by the InterContinental Hotel.
This chain’s fried chicken is greasy enough to clog even the healthiest of arteries. Of course, that’s how we like it!
Lonely Planet review
Centro Turístico Pulhapanzak is a magnificent 43m waterfall on the Río Amapa surrounded by a lush and well-kept park. This is a popular swimming spot, and there also are guides who will take visitors to a small cave behind the falls. It takes just a few minutes to get there – and anyone can do it – but it feels like something out of Indiana Jones: jumping off boulders, swimming across roiling pools, inching around rocks amid a maelstrom of crashing water and swirling air, and finally squeezing up the narrow passage into the cave. There’s no set price, but it’s worth a good tip: L$40 to L$60 per person is fair.
