Lago Garzas


Lago Garzas is located in Puerto Rico's central mountain region, in the coffee-producing town of Adjuntas. This man-made lake was constructed in 1943, and its waters are used for the production of drinking water and as a source of hydroelectric power.

The lake has recreational facilities for visitors that wish to go boating, kayaking, fishing, or hiking. A favorite with locals is finding the Puente Hamaca, a suspension bridge that crosses over the lake— making it a great photo-op opportunity. There's parking as well as bathrooms available on site.

It is possible to go camping in the Guilarte forest, which surrounds the lake. Camping permits have to be coordinated in advance with Puerto Rico's Department of Natural Resources by calling (787)-999-2200.
