Aguas dulces

Aguas Dulces is located at km 277.5 of Route 10, Juan Díaz de Solís. The pace of the resort is marked by leasurely strolls along the sand or in its narrow streets, by searching for cockles by the sea, by the time spent cooking grandma’s forgotten recipes or by friendly rounds of maté in the afternoon. None of this impedes the ever growing nightlife offered by its nightclubs.Aguas Dulces is a town that has survived the ongoing onslaught of storms, its buildings conserve its picturesque character - its main street follows the line of the sea. It is an ideal place to rest, enjoy and relax.It currently has the first nudist beach in the area, called La Sirena, which is located about two kilometers to the north of the resort. Along its shores the fish are plentiful and the sea breeze is felt freely between its open beaches.
 
History
The resort originated from the ranches that the inhabitants of the nearby town, Castillos, began building in the early twentieth century. By 1930, the first ranches on pillars were built. Unfortunately, almost all these constructions, called ‘palafitos de Aguas Dulces’, no longer exist today. Many of its streets and public spaces carry the names of nearby sunken ships. Some of the shipwreck survivors stayed living in the area and contributed towards its development.In the past, activity in the summer was very different to how it is today. Access to bathing on the beach in Aguas Dulces at the beginning of the twentieth century was divided by sector and by shifts: one for women and another for men. The police from Castillos ensured compliance with the schedule and sector division.
