San Bernardino Travel Guide

San Bernardino

The popular holiday resort of San Bernardino, on the shores of Lago Ypacaraí, makes an excellent day trip from the capital. From December to March it's packed with weekenders enjoying the dark blue waters ringed by clean, white sand. Water sports are a popular pastime—windsurfing equipment can be rented at the beaches.
