Esteros de Ibera, Corrientes
(4.9/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Since we arrived in streams we did the idea that conoceriamos the Esteros del Iberá. Little information had (because not us are dedicated to search), only a couple of data that us had last about those places by where is could enter. As we are a couple of travelers in a small car (Renault 4 gtl in the year 85') we knew that would have that shared expenses with someone who would like to go or take a tour. First there was no way, the second was to be seen. So it was like being in the town of Ituzaingo, for the path went close from Cambyreta, an entry into the estuaries. We pleased to inquire about the matter and they did not give the following indication in an agency of tourism (of two agencies that exist in the village): 1050 Argentine pesos per person, with lunch included (?) in 4 x 4. It is obvious that we were not. There I leave you.

  • This is my second time in the Esteros del Iberá. The first was by Carlos Pellegrini and this time chose to know another Portal. San Miguel is the population from which it is accessed, there some lodgings, it is a small and quiet village. Since there are 27 km of sand and Earth, if there was no rain can be accessed with common vehicles. The route of access that leads to the camping passes through some forest and livestock farms, but once entered in the reserve there is a camping site and there opens a path of 7 km q separate the campsite of the Harbour from where you can take walks with lifter. The road is pure Iberá, animals are everywhere. Birds, capybara, caimans all the way to the port. Without a doubt, a great choice for Ibera. I recommend hiring cooperative Yasi Bera to know through the locals, enjoying much more, great hosts!

  • The truth that is very cute surf estuaries, had never been in a landscape so, and I was surprised! He only inconvenient was that hired the excursion by phone and for 4 people and loaded a lot of people to save outputs, without be this it talked, and the truth that traveled tight! But beyond this, the landscape all remedia it! On-site tours are much cheaper, so if they are not in high season, come to the place where to go out and hire there! If it is raining or rain I do not recommend it, is the way very teased, can fit!
