Esteros de Ibera, Corrientes

4.8
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.

    For lovers of eco-tourism, the Esteros del Ibera are paradise. Animals of all kinds can be, including on routes for vehicles (4 x 4) at any of their sites. We were in the portal San Nicolas and it is wonderful. Alligators, Capybaras, deer, ostriches and a diversity of amazing birds. In addition, a rich cultural history. Soon it will be a National Park, and will be one of the most visited places in the country. I recommend to go more than one day.

Where to stay in Corrientes

Good-value lodgings in Corrientes are available throughout the year, but it's a good idea to reserve in advance if you plan to visit during the city's famous carnival. Many area hotels offer significant discounts to visitors paying in cash, an incentive that may encourage you to always carry enough local currency. Eco-lodges and working ranches provide alternative options to staying at a hotel and often offer their own guided tours, night safaris, or horseback riding activities.
