  • Unmissable place to visit, enjoy, browse, take photos, see many different birds and some other animals. It has some infrastructure, poorly maintained, for example, bathrooms without water, there is a dining room or a place where to buy a food or a drink. You must bring everything you need to survive.

  • Located in the province of Formosa, Argentina we find this beautiful National Park whose environment is the Savannah. Wild animals us dazzled in their path including the jaguarundi, alligators and peccaries. Emphasizing on the other hand, flocks of birds that we had ever seen. Sunsets in Laguna Blanca were enshrined forever in our retina. Adventure and much more! To just 189km from Capital Formosa and 60 km from the city of Clorinda.

  • From the city of Formosa to the village of Laguna Blanca are 140 Km, micro enterprise takes Godoy from 02:30 pm to 03:00 pm and the cost is $120 out first at 09 h 30. With stops along the way. I recommend that when new arriving (they can ask questions or with the google maps they realize) tell you the driver to stop them at the Administrative Office of the Park, so they don't have to go to where it stops, which are about 10 blocks away. The entrance to the Park is located along a 6 km gravel road, it is not recommended to hire a remis take advantage and are expensive ($200 trip), if they can help it better. Remises them are at the entrance of the Park Office on the road, next to a guard post, can coordinate with the Park Ranger if they match just in time coming to the Park. They do not charge them anything. As all national park must be registered at the police station and the Park Ranger explain the route, a long way from 16 Kms until the Pilcomayo River where you can see and photograph crocodiles, on the road can interbreed with a bear anteater (they are dangerous, do not approach too), and birds of all kinds (especially after 16 HR.). The tour is intended to do with a vehicle, but if they want and time (in addition to physical stamina) can be done on foot. It is recommended to visit between the months of April and October, then mosquitoes are as high temperatures are unbearable. So carry water, food, insect repellent of mosquitoes, sunscreen, long sleeves and to protect the head from the Sun. Entry is no charge and you can camp, with bathrooms with shower, electricity, wifi and pools for washing. If you want to can coordinate with any remis for return or take advantage of Ranger to reach them if you are having to go to the people, or to walk. For the return, a small business operates as a stop, where the first bus of the day passes 04: 30hs and the latter at 19 h 15, during the day there are like four outlets, the price is $120 and takes as ida stopping on the way to the terminus of Formosa. I hope that been beyond help have. They are well.

  • 03-09-2017 yesterday went to the East Wing of the Park, very nice, there were people so we had the entire park for us. We saw traces of Yacaré, Cardinals, owls and woodpeckers. Accessible restrooms, drinking water and shade everywhere. There was no Park Rangers. The caretaker suggested another entry, which had a lookout, River, cute, all... I chamuyo. We did 16 km from the route, had little signs and the famous inns where you could stop eating it carried, were meters of clean land to machete, with a waste container and a wooden table. There was no drinking water and no health care. At the end of the tour, in the "Parador Jaguar" viewpoint was in bad condition, dry wood and the high pasture. There was no clean way to get from the parking lot to the same. It had a single table and two benches, there was available to go down to the River Road and either had water or toilets. Unfortunate that they want to promote a place as beautiful without basic services and with few indications. It may not be the appropriate date, but not why they should both neglect Park.
