Few hotels have a particular charm, and this is one of them. Hotel Refugio Pozo Azul has been the venue of many weddings and its romantic scenery was once the setting where a man in love found the perfect place to propose to his girlfriend: the middle of the Tota lake while they were taking a tour on a boat.
Native trees like myrtles, mortiños, romerón pines and laurels grow in the well-kept garden, while hydrangeae, with their blue and violet hues, and other flowers like yellow, red and white lilies bring happiness with their colors.
Visitors come to the hotel to enjoy the landscape and the tranquility, but they also like fishing trout, taking boat trips around the lake, riding a bicycle on the road surrounding Tota and riding water bikes.
A plan not to be missed at Hotel Refugio Pozo Azul is to savour the trout, which here is cooked in 12 different ways. Among other styles, it is cooked a la criolla, with tomato and long onion which is typical of the region; al camarón (with shrimp); grilled and also smoked with aliso (alder) leaves, a native tree growing in the garden that is used to reforest lands because of its rapid growth and also because it gives refuge to birds like copetones (crested sparrows), chisgas and doves.
