Fresh water, red color and high temperatures are the features of the famous red lagoon located in the Region of Arica and Parinacota.

The Laguna Roja (Red Lagoon) is located in northern Chile, in the town of Camina. The locals call it "Mar Rojo" (Red Sea) because its fresh water has high temperatures (40 to 50ºC) making aquatic animals, such as dolphins, turtles and whales swim far away from it. It is believed to have supernatural powers because many Aimaras died after drinking its water.
