The crystal clear lagoon at San Alfonso del Mar keeps raising the interest of some of the most prestigious media worldwide. This time, the world-renowned scientific and cultural TV network “National Geographic” selected Crystal Lagoons’ iconic project as one of the world’s most amazing lagoons
San Alfonso heads a list of 10 dream world destinations shortlisted by the network. National Geographic also underlines the massive size of the lagoon and the high quality of its turquoise waters among many other features that made this Crystal Lagoon’s project an unparallel world-class destination.
Since San Alfonso de Mar was certified as the world’s greatest manmade lagoon in 2007, it became an international attraction that keeps raising the interest of myriad media worldwide. In fact, just six months after the lagoon was certified by the World Record Guinness, there were more than 2.000 TV channels, newspapers and magazines visiting the lagoon, such as Wired, Discovery Channel, The Guardian, The Times, TV Channel Fuji Network Co, Corriere Della Sera, Stern Magazine, CNN, BBC, Süeddeutsche Zeitung, among many others.
This was Crystal Lagoons’ first project and it was built 17 years ago in Chile and it still holds the Guinness World Record as the largest crystal clear lagoon in the world, at 20 acres in size. The project reportedly broke all real estate sales forecasts many times over.
In fact, San Alfonso del Mar is the iconic project that enabled the consolidation of the export model for the world’s largest crystalline lagoons that today are part of more than 300 international developments.
Crystal Lagoons Corp. is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size crystal clear lagoons at very low costs.
