Cocha Resbaladero

Swimming in Pica

Most visitors make a beeline to the freshwater pool at Cocha Resbaladero, at the upper end of General Ibáñez. Encircled by cool rock, hanging vegetation and a watery cave, it makes a terrific spot to beat the desert heat – but in itself is not reason enough to visit Pica.

You'll need to bring your own towel.
