I visited Esteros deal Iberá from Colonia Carlos Pellegrini after reading about this relatively undiscovered corner of Argentina. It's their equivalent of the Pantanal in Brazil and the wildlife is similar. Capybaras graze next to the enormous Iberá lake and black caiman laze in the...More

Firstly, the wetlands are amazing. But I'll focus on the practical information as that is more useful. I did this trip as a solo backpacker so if you have more money this may not be that useful. I got an overnight bus from Buenos Aeries...More

Must go in the north of Argentina! Bit difficult to get there, but tours start from an office right next to the terminal in Mercedes. Everyday from 8.00.

If you love fauna & flora, this is a must. Natural reserve preserving yacares, capibaras, birds, wild cats, deers, carayas, etc, etc. Can take a tour by trekking as well as by boat... You'll appreciate different species in its natural environment.
