C.U.R. - Centro Urbano de Recreación
We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.
The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.
For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)
Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

The complex is located off Carrera 68 which is quite busy. It is a large place so allow plenty of time to get to the pools from the entry point. If coming by car you need to take a ticket at the entry which you present to another checkpoint further on. You can then enter the carpark via another checkpoint and receive another ticket. This ticket with your swimming ticket allows you free parking but only after you have presented it at several different places in order to receive another ticket so that you can leave- got it?
To swim there, you need to buy a one hour slot online or you can go there and purchase a ticket from a machine in the main office which you will need to find. You also need a passport or ID. You then go to find the specific pool and present your ticket at the entry. It is an overly complicated and time-consuming exercise and you should allow at least 30 minutes to get there and into the pool. Also, the swimming slots start on the hour and half hour, so you may need to wait to start your allocated slot. Further bureaucracy awaits you at the change room, where you need to present yet another ticket at entry to the pool in exchange for a wristband. Lockers use a 500 peso coin which is non-refundable. Someone will open and close your locker, another person escort you through the shower, and another will tell you which lane to swim in - although nobody really seemed to care which lane you actually use.
The pool is clean but I found it a little too warm. It was not too busy and I had a lane to myself. Overall it took me about 90 minutes in and out for a 25 minute swim, so maybe better to go there for a long session.
