Parque Nacional El Palmar, Colon

4.4
#1 of 7 in Nature in Province of Entre Rios
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.

  • El Palmar National Park is a place to connect with nature, it has several trails, most can be done by car. You can spend a full day to explore everything, it has trails that are only made to foot. The State is very good, you can see foxes, Capybaras and birds. It has access to the River, and a beach to spend the day. There are also ruins of an old quarry. It also has a quite acceptable restaurant, there are tables and chairs area. The bathrooms are a disaster--charge an entry, I don't remember the value. I recommend it! We always return!

  • Beautiful National Park, pay 120 adults and anything the kids, give you little map as soon as you enter and most is done by car, there are 4 viewpoints and 3 little difficulty trails (the first between trees pretty fresh and the others in areas more open) (, eye on very hot days) in addition to the end this camping, restaurant, sandwiches and visitor centre. Enough care. We saw lots of Capybaras, some turtles, lizards speckled and ducks and many butterflies and birds of colors, there is that attention! For lovers of plants, there are many beautiful native. The walk is worthwhile, is a great contact with the (wild nature, don't expect luxuries)

  • A place not to be missed, lots of nature to see. If the day is cloudy it is better because there is much to explore, go with shoes and clothes comfortable.

  • 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.
