Colonia Carlos Pellegrini is an awkward place to get to but worth the trip. This was a great place to stay friendly and cosy with a garden, TV room and all comforts. We had two boat trips included in our stay and Marcello was an excellent host directing us to a pleasant restaurant nearby for dinner.

We stayed with a tour group in November. The rooms were clean and the food was great. Highly recommend sleeping in the hammocks on a warm afternoon! And the animals in the park were wonderful too! The wifi is pretty spotty but you don't go to a place like this for the wifi.

What an amazing part of the world. The Esteros is an incredible place, with a huge amount of wildlife. Rancho Ibera is a lovely lodge - very comfortable and spacious rooms, places to laze about and great food. There's no wifi, no nothing in the town - but this is a good thing as you feel completely cut off from the rest of the world and closer to nature. But the best thing is Marcelo, our guide, who was able to answer all our questions about anything. He even got us up close and personal with otters and an anaconda (by chance!)...we would recommend this to anyone!

I can't say enough wonderful things about this fabulous lodge. We had an incredible time. The whole experience of staying at this Posada Rancho Ibera and visiting the Ibera is unique. Taty and Marcello both made us so welcome and went out of their way to make our stay special. The quality of the accommodations, the food and the guided nature experiences was exceptional. The details: The Ibera: A truly remarkable place, the Esteros de Ibera is a huge area of wetland floating islands and spectacular wildlife. The birds and animals are remarkably unconcerned by human observation, and you will see a multitude of animals and birds close up, many endangered and uncommon. For a nature lover, the place is amazing! What you get: For a very reasonable price, we had a lovely room, three excellent dinners, three breakfasts, afternoon tea/coffee, two boat trips of 2 hours each (in which we saw capybara, anacondas, innumerable spectacular birds, two sorts of caiman and pampas deer), a guided walk (in which we saw howler monkeys, capybara, pampas deer, and a Geoffrey's wildcat), and a night-walk (we saw armadillos, crab-eating foxes, anaconda and a culpeo fox). We could have opted to horseback ride instead of the night walk, but our goal was to see lots of wildlife so we went for the night walk, and were glad we did. The lodge itself: It is built in a ranch style, with lovely wooden windows and a big common room (with TV), a big dining room with charming wooden chairs and tables, with a number of smaller buildings with individual rooms set around a nice garden. There is free wi-fi, and all of the rooms have air conditioning and heating (it was cool at night when we were here in July). Since it was winter time, we did not want to use the pool, but noticed there was one. Our room had nice tile floors, beautiful windows, good hot water shower and was attractive and comfortable. Your hosts are Taty and Marcello. Taty corresponded with me in the month prior to our arrival and kept me informed as to the state of the road (so we could choose which was the best route to use) and our options in terms of activities. Throughout our visit, Taty and Marcello were kind and welcoming, going way out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful time. Our guide: The guide for all of your outings is Marcello, who is fantastic. He was a wealth of information (despite our limited Spanish and his basic English, he was able to convey all of the information we needed) and he is incredible at spotting wildlife. Often when we were in the boat or on the path, he would see something off in the distance, and we seemed to go from one spectacular sighting to another. It is worth noting for birdwatchers, that he is excellent at spotting and identifying birds, and he brought along his bird-guidebook so he could show us the English name as well as give us the common Argentinian name. He was extremely sensitive to our interests, and aware of whether we had managed to get a good picture, or looked our fill at something remarkable. Marcello would let us know our schedule the night before and would arrange with us where to meet and how long we would go for. The food: Fabulous! The dinners were really exceptional, with tasty appetizers, delicious main courses and special homemade desserts (the flan was the best I have ever tasted). We particularly enjoyed the afternoon tea or coffee with home-baked goodies! Breakfast had nice freshly baked medialunas and fresh toasted bread with assorted cheese, ham and jams to go with them. The village: The lodge is in the village of Carlos Pelligrini, which is hardly a village. It is a spread-out patchwork grid of hotels and houses, but lacks anything that I would consider makes it a village (no stores, church, or gas station). There are a number of restaurants and when you check in Taty gives you a map of the village so you can find a restaurant for your lunch. We enjoyed doing this, as it gave us a chance to walk around the village and try some other places (though we were awfully glad we were staying where we were). Walking, we never met anyone else, but we did meet two wandering horses, a cow and many friendly dogs!!! The location: Carlos Pelligrini is a LONG drive on a very rough dirt road north of Mercedes. We were coming from Posadas, and needed to drive all the way south to access the town from the south, as the road was not good to the north. Hard to believe it could have been worse than our drive! But we both agreed that it was worth the drive to go to this wonderful place! NOTE: Fill up with gas in Mercedes before coming north to Carlos Pelligrini. There is no good gas station in town. We drove up to the Esteros de Ibera on a little over a half tank and had a very stressful drive back, watching the gas gauge!!! Learn from our experience and fill up your tank before you go! Our stay at this beautiful posada and our fantastic wildlife experiences were definitely the highlight of our trip to Argentina. We hope that we return to stay at the posada again someday soon, and highly recommend it to anyone. Until we return, I will treasure my beautiful Ibera birdbook, Taty and Marcello! Thank you for everything!

This is a great place to stay. Very welcoming owner and lovely food. Lovely clean rooms and a quiet location in the middle of the village. We had two boat trips on the lakes and saw lots of wildlife. Go now before the village becomes too touristy. Take plenty of sun cream, it was very warm. It can be a difficult place to get to, we travelled by bus from iguazu to Posadas and then had a four hour car trip. The last three hours of the trip on a sandy unmade road! The best way would be from Mercedes apparently the road is much better, we would certainly do that next time. It was certainly worth the trip and we hope to visit again one day.
