LOS DOS PINOS is a tourist resort located in the land where the first pioneers chose to settle. Their first mission was to increase the vegetation and to build a forest in order to protect the lands from the strong winds that batter the area, using the Calafate Stream for irrigation. The Stream is located just 30mt away and runs gently downhill from the highest peaks most part of the year, but in spring time the snowbreak makes the flowrate grow and eventually flood.
Until a few years ago, it was also an undisputed for the recreation of children who swam, fished and even used it as a skating rink in the winter.
For those friends of walking, few minutes away from Los Dos Pinos, by the Calafate Stream you can find the Antuco Bridge named by the people after a Pioneer family. Also called Blanco Bridge (White bridge) connects the area with an old farm zone now growing into a residential neighborhood; and immediately after you'll become dazzled by the Nimes Lagoon. This is a Municipal Reserve where you can see all the native flora and fauna, especially birds, such as flamingos, swans, ducks diversity, blemishes, etc. Walking a little further north appears the majestic Argentino Lake and the most breathtaking landscape. In the background the snowy Andes, the milky waters of the lake that are frequently visited by wandering icebergs, and the rock island just a few hundred meters from you. Turning east, you reach the Gualichu Caves, where the most beautiful native cave paintings decorate the place.
