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.

  • Very much liked the boat excursions where we saw alligators deer the pantana, Capybaras, anacondas and many birds. On the trails, we saw monkeys. A very quiet place with a fauna hard to see everything in one place

  • We stayed in Carlos Pellegrini. Although it is a small place with few services, the people are very kind and being inside the estuaries, in direct contact with the environment deserves it. Keep in mind that there is NO INTERNET. Accommodations that promise you can not already meet the signal is so low that it does not leave a wapp. Movistar also has no coverage. Is ideal for unplugged from truth!

  • Group of friends we paid a visit to an amazing place. As if time were detained. Dirt roads. A picturesque square. I recommend making visits to the estuaries in boats. Good duration and very exciting, are sighted birds of all types, fauna fully a mile from the visitors. There are hotels of all types. Suggestion for a couple of days.

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.
