Esteros del Iberá excursion

In the Iberá reserve, nature takes over the senses. The new low impact processes raise awareness about the conservation of flora and fauna.

To visit the Esteros del Iberá, Colonia Carlos Pellegrini is the rural village where to base. Gradually the inns are established to facilitate the tourist promotion of this site as spectacular as it is lush and wild, a destination highly sought after by naturalists, photographers, biologists and, also, lovers of nature and ecotourism.

Wetlands and Ecotourism
The Esteros del Iberá make up one of the most important tropical wetlands, according to its extension and the species that inhabit it. Located in the center of the province of Corrientes, it maintains a close relationship with the Paraná River, whose ancient channels modeled the landscape, then appropriated by the morphology of the Iberá. Its water system consists of a network of estuaries, bathed and lagoons woven by canals, to become a diffuse system with sandy loins, which drains through the River Corrientes.

Iberá means "shining waters" in the Guarani language. Its importance as the second wetland in the world caused it to be declared a national park in 2018, one of the newest parks. It seeks to rebuild ecosystems of forests and grasslands and reintroduce species that had disappeared, such as the yaguareté, the anteater, the tapir, the pampas deer, among others. The commitment is to ecotourism and local development derived from conservation.
