Build it and they will come: see the world’s largest swimming pool

At first,I thought the pool was going to be owned by a private party who went off the deep-end to show off.

But No! It’s a little South American country that knows how to draw the tourists.

From Oddity Central:

“This man-made wonder is 1013 meters long covers 80 acres, its deepest end reaches 115ft and it holds 66 million gallons of water. If you want to take a dip in the world’s largest swimming pool you’ll have to travel to San Alfonso del Mar in Algarrobo,Chile, where a computer-controlled suction and filtration system continuously pumps water from the ocean, keeping crystal clear.”

I wonder if Texas knows about this?
