Esteros de Ibera, Corrientes

(380+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
Canoe through the unspoiled shallow lakes and lagoons of Esteros de Ibera, and look for the curious phenomenon of floating islets of thick vegetation. One of the vital fresh-water reservoirs in South America, this area supports a diversity of wildlife, including 350 species of birds, black caimans, the rare maned wolf, and the world's noisiest animal--the howler monkey. Set your base at the quiet village of Colonia Pellegrini or at one of the rural "estancias" (ranches). From there you can embark on photographic safaris, motorboat excursions, bird watching tours, or horseback riding. Many paths will take you through different sceneries, where jungles mix with bogs and riversides turn into lagoons. Our Corrientes tourist route planner makes visiting Esteros de Ibera and other Corrientes attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
