The main tourist attraction in the Region of San Ignacio is represented by the ruins of the Jesuit reduction at San Ignacio Miní. They are well-preserved and have become World Cultural Heritage.

The fact that the Paraná River lies very close turns this area into a perfect destination for angling enthusiasts. The main city is also named San Ignacio and it is the starting point for other interesting visits, such as Peñón del Teyucuaré and Horacio Quiroga’s house museum.
