Published on 28 March, 2014 at 12:32 pm By

Trees got burned, village got submerged and almost a quarter century of this town was under water. Town name Epecuen was once a beautiful lakeside resort where tourist were served in large numbers. Visitors do love to come here and to relax in Epecuen’s saltwater baths and spas because it contains 10 times more salt than the ocean. Tourists, especially people from Buenos Aires’ large Jewish community, enjoyed floating in water that reminded them of the Dead Sea in the Middle East.
