A day at the lake

There are no natural lakes in Puerto Rico, but I have heard the man made lakes are very pretty.  

Lago Dos Bocas was a bit of a drive, albeit an easy one. And pretty it was. I made reservations at one of the restaurants on the lake: Paisaje Escondido. In the parking lot representatives for each of the restaurants are there to help you get on the right boat to their establishment (aka get your business at their eatery).
After a 15 minute wait and a trip to the baños that had no toilet paper (when will I learn!?) we were off.
I think they squished more people on the boat than they had life jackets for, but eh. They made the kiddos wear ’em at least.  

Note to self: bring Mom kayaking here!  

After making you work out on the extremely steep walkway to the restaurant, (it’s handicap accessible of you don’t roll backwards into the lake!) you’ll get mediocre meals with ok drinks and great views.  

Plus side: kids play area!
Down side: it’s 5 feet from a steep 40′ drop!

    That is a fun place. Did they point out the submerged sugarcane factory beneath the water?

    Kayaking on the lake is a mixed bag. If you can ignore the garbage, dead and stray dogs and no practical bathrooms its great. Really, it is great if not for the things I mentioned.
