Parque Nacional El Palmar, Colon

4.4
#1 of 7 in Nature in Province of Entre Rios
National Park Nature / Park
Wander among engendered yatay palm trees at Parque Nacional El Palmar, which protects native plant life from the encroaching threat of human development. The national park serves as a sanctuary for Argentina's remaining palm savannah and the hundreds of species of animals who call it home. Keep an eye out for foxes, woodpeckers, and large, flightless nandus, which roam the park freely. Pitch a tent at the national park's large, serviced campground, to enjoy a night under the stars. Put Parque Nacional El Palmar and other Colon attractions into our Colon trip builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Very nice ride to drive. It is a nature reserve with lots of vegetation, zorritos and Capybaras on the roads, a beach at the end of the route and some paradores and viewpoints. Really complete serenity. To take pictures, we just went to the sunset, great.

  • It is a beautiful park, part by car may be toured and part walking, since it has trails for this. on the way the local fauna can go see. It has thick vegetation zones and beach areas! It also has camping and restaurant services. Amazing place!

  • A magical place where animals are on the trails, we saw Capybaras, foxes, rheas, Magpies, Harriers, as well as countless birds. And if you stay till dusk you can contemplate the noisy vizcachas.

  • Awesome!
  • Beautiful place. Very neat and tidy. Excessively recommended to go by car, since the distances between trails are long. Great view and very rich flora and fauna. Spend the day touring. It has rivers, streams, roads, beach to walk, animals of all kinds. Beautiful experience. The only bad thing, some of the trails were closed.

  • A wonderful place, pure nature, which no doubt would return. Many trails are now closed, none have posters with identification of species of trees and plants, one walks by them without knowing what he sees to his around. The bathrooms are terrible! old, broken, insufficient and lose water mains, when it reaches the flood of tourists at noon the baths are overwhelmed for hours. Honestly one would not expect these things from a national park where he also has to pay an expensive entrance

  • Excellent for a day. Very quiet and nice to walk on foot or by bike. More services for 14 years ago when he went for the last time. Recommended for pic-nick.

  • Beautiful place to rest, affordable, comfortable camping. For my only taste is missing a good fishing area but is understood that is a nature reserve. Worth a visit.

Where to stay in Colon

The most popular place to look for accommodations in Colon lies between Av. Pres. Juan Domingo Peron and the Uruguay River. Attractive riverfront hotels offer good selections of amenities, including pools, spas, and well-appointed dining rooms. As a rule, head farther from the Uruguay River if you're looking for a budget-friendly option. On the side streets of Colon's main neighborhoods, you'll find a good selection of family-run posadas (guesthouses) and simple hotels offering comfortable rooms for a good night's sleep.
