The world's largest swimming pool

45375917

Summer’s moved on from NYC and Autumn has arrived early. This is saddening as summer just does not seem to last as long these days (maybe it is because NYC has become the new Seattle). So when I stumbled upon these pictures in the Los Angeles Times of the world’s largest swimming pool I immediately jumped on Orbitz looking for flights. And no, the pool is not in Mexico. It’s in Chile.

The pool, located at the San Alfonso del Mar vacation property resort at Algarrobo, Chile uses water from the the surrounding Pacific ocean to fill up. It measures 3,324 feet in length and is clear 100 feet below. Sailing and kayaking are encouraged. As is diving, though with no fish, I am at a loss as to why anyone would do that.
