Good idea. Fish fuck in the sea.

It seems to me like a huuuuuge waste of resources.

Is it possible to swim in that giant mass of water there to the right, otherwise known as, y'know, the ocean? If there's some limiting factors involved, wouldn't it maybe be a better use of resources to maybe turn that into somewhere people can swim? Cause right now, this looks like a huge waste. I could understand if it was somewhere in the middle of an ultra-landlocked area, but Chile?

It looks freaking ugly! Nothing about it looks attractive nor appealing to me. C'mon folks, why invest some serious $$$$ on a little kiddy pool?

I think it's for rich people who cannot risk swimming in the ocean :)

If I'd be tourist I'd choose Bolivia's mirror lake anyway.

I don't think it's particularly ugly. I would rather swim in a pool than the ocean most of the time and would bet $100 that 95% of ocean side resorts have a swimming pool, if not 6 or more. Also, I'm not sure how much of a waste it'd really be. I'd be surprised if they didn't find a way to maintain it relatively economically, I'm almost positive they just fill it with some kind of filtered sea water, and I bet being the resort with the worlds largest pool draws in a lot of tourists.

Maybe, but I believe those are private resources anyway, it's not like those resources could or would be destined to feed the hungry, or something like that.

That is a good point.

I looked it up, it's filtered sea water that eventually makes it's way back to the sea. So literally no resources are wasted.

Well, as long as it is not salty water 'cause I cannot swim, I'll like literally drown myself; unless I can surf inside the party pool.
