The largest swimming pool in the world is more than 3,000 feet long, with a deep end that descends 115 feet. So where is the Guinness-record holding pool?
It's at the San Alfonso del Mar resort in Valparaiso, Chile. It holds 250 million liters of water. How big is that? It's the equivalent of 6,000 8 meter pool. Besides its gargantuan size, the water is an an impossible-to-believe clear turquoise. This has been made possible thanks to an advanced technology developed by the company Crystal Lagoons, which is able to collect ocean water and keep it in perfect condition. But this is not all that it is there: during summer, the lagoon further maintains a pleasant temperature that borders 26ºC, nine degrees more than the nearby sea temperature.
