Inspirock Rating:
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.

  • For those who like nature is an ideal place. I went to estuaries from the village of San Miguel, and from there to St. Nicholas Park is 27 kms. Earth and sand. The van with guide costs $1200, for all those who travel, San Miguel has very little infrastructure yet, it can be a good choice to spend a full day and the next day continue exploring other places of corrientes. See caimans, Capybaras, foxes, deer, armadillos, lizards, etc etc. really full nature. Very good to also speak with villagers in the area, there is a cooperative formed by locals of a guarani village, providing services guide, breakfast and lunch, apart from knowing their customs and traditions

  • A great experience is to visit the Esteros del Iberá. Without a doubt, it offers a contact with nature difficult to find. There are rides by boat where you can see the capybara, Caiman, deer, varieties of birds. There are options of night hikes by the hill where you can see armadillos, cat mounts, and all animals in full night activity. For all this, we had a local guide: Pedro. He is located in campsite Camba Cuá and has much knowledge, it is a pleasure to listen to it. Don't miss the opportunity to meet this beautiful reserve and experience the night offering estuaries.
