Argentina in my heart

This was a family trip we did with our small 4 year old children. The nature, the animals, the philosophy, the beauty, all made this a unique experience. We strongly recommend it as a family trip! ♥️

Wonderful Place!

Great experience, away from technology, and the internet, and very close to nature (animals, plants, water and the sky).

Excellent place for wilidlife photography
čvn 2019 • Přátelé
Second time there in two years. Private boat tours for photography with great photo opportunities of birds and mammals and most interesting, mosquitos and flies were not an annoyance when there in June; don't know about rest of the year.

Also great for night photography from the bridge and other coastal areas away from the town. A new park just opened up the last day I was there with long trails and was able to photograph wild monkeys.

fantastic day trip from San Ignacio
bře 2019 • Pár
After visiting the Misiones Jesuiticas we hired a day trip to visit the park from San Ignacio with "Tierra Colorada Turismo", the agency organized a fantastic day in the park where we could see hundreds of birds and animals such as monkeys, deer, capivaras, foxes, alligators, the best was the barbecue in the park, we paid 75 dollars per person all inclusive, we highly recommend this visit.

Fabulous wildlife
lis 2018 • Pár
Pellegrini is a bit difficult to reach. About three hours by bus to Mercedes. We came from San Ignacio and it took almost five hours. Very small town but there are a lot of posadas and a few places to eat.
We came on a sort of package which included a wildlife walk, a boat trip and a night walk.
Our guide for all of these was Raoul. He was excellent. Very pleasant and helpful and good at finding wildlife. Like most people here, he didn’t have much English. The walk was in the National Park and really pleasant. There were Howler Monkeys in the woods. There is a boardwalk over the water with great views of caiman and capybara which are plentiful. We also saw a deer and lots of birds. This is a walk you can take yourself at any time if you walk over the causeway from Pellegrini (about 20 minutes).
Our boat trip was at 7 in the morning and was really magical. The light was beautiful. We floated around so peacefully and glided in really close to lots of the wildlife who didn’t seem bothered by our presence.
Equally the night walk was fabulous. I had been prepared for fireflies and the odd capybara but it went way beyond that. We met raccoons and armadillos. We even met an anteater but I think we were lucky to catch that.
I was on an expensive trip to the Pantanal a few weeks ago. There were some outstanding things there, notably jaguars, but the variety here would give it competition and at a far cheaper price.
I also went horse riding here. I have no experience to talk of, but the horse was very calm. We had a two hour trek through fields which was beautiful. It was one of the highlights of my trip at a cost of ten euro.
Ibera is a little difficult to get to and from. However it is a fantastic place to see wildlife. Do at least go on a boat trip (preferably early morning) and on a night walk in the National Park.

Saw so much ch wildlife in natural habitat. Marsh deer, capibara, both in land and swimming, mating herons doing the acrobatic dance, and more caiman that I have ever seen! Even a rhea on the drive in. Suck unspoiled beauty. Unbelievable!

Beautiful, peaceful, enjoy the wildlife
kvě 2018 • Pár
As a previous reviewer has said, it is a bit of a mission to get there and if it rains heavily the bus will not run as the unpaved dirt roads will just turn to mud. From Mercedes, we got the bus with Daniel Ortiz. He arrived at 8am when we were there. The bus even says ORTIZ on the front. 300pesos per person one way. Carlos Pelligrini is a small village where everyone seems to know everyone. There is no ATM but the small supermarket there is actually not too bad. There is no restaurants as such but the locals cook food in their kitchen so you just walk to someone's house and ask if they serve food.

The wetlands is a beautiful place to watch wildlife, especially birds and butterflies. I recommend the 2 hour boat tour. Everyone offers similar tours so don't hesitate to ask around. There are free walking trails you can do yourself to observe wildlife and simply enjoy the surroundings. It was low season when we visited so it was wonderfully peaceful. There is a spot in town offering free WiFi, so you will see people just standing around this big satellite dish while glued to their phones... It didn't feel touristy at all but that also did mean no one spoke English! A highly recommended place to visit, at least for a couple of nights, and enjoy some time with nature. If you want to see the monkeys, early morning is best.

To get out of CCP you can ask around to arrange a private transfer (essentially a guy and his pick up truck) to Posadas rather than taking the bus to Mercedes. Expect to pay around 4000 pesos for the service, so the more people sharing the cheaper it is per person.

Nice place for wildlife, though 1 full day is enough
led 2018
This is a nice place to spend some time animal watching, though the tours that are offered here are all the same, thrice a day. I would recommend doing a morning and evening tour, and getting out after two nights. If you get a chance I would recommend the wetlands in Bolivia (from Rurrenabaque) or the Pantanal in Brazil. Far more wildlife to be seen and a whole lot more different excursions to choose from. However, not everyone has the luxury or time, and if you don't, then this is fine for a day!

Parque Iberà - one word, breathtaking!
dub 2018 • Jednotlivci
I read up about Parquet Iberà when I was in Brasil last month, and considering taking a trip to the Pantanal. I had heard that this was Argentina's version. Given I didn't visit the Pantanal, I don't have much to compare it to, but from what I heard about it Iberà appears to be much less on the tourist / backpacking trail, and certainly seems a lot more unspoilt. It didn't disappoint, and for mid April I must have been one of about a dozen European tourists there. The park - based out of Carlos Pellegrini - is simply incredible. A paradise.

However, it is quite difficult to work out how to get there cheaply (given I am backpacking around South America). I will summarise my journey and the options, as it is likely to be of great help for most! I started in Encarnacion, Paraguay. Crossed the border at Posadas (I understand that you can take private 4x4 transfers from here), bused it to Corrientes (beautiful city - worth taking some time to explore the riverside) and stayed overnight there in Catedral Hostel. I got the 6am bus from the terminal to Mercedes, Corrientes Province. Worth looking bus times up on the platforma10 website in advance, as I am sure times and bus companies change regularly. The bus arrived in to Mercedes at circa 9am.

For travel from Mercedes to Pellegrini, you have a fair few options as at the time of writing:
1. Private 4x4 transfer, generally organised through your Posada
2. ‎The "unofficial" mini bus. Operated by a man called Daniel (you need to ask for him at the bus station), which leaves at 8.30am. I understand the cost is ARG$300.
3. ‎Another mini bus service that leaves at 9am from Juan Pujol Street, near Alvear Street. I understand the cost is ARG$300.
4. ‎The general bus service (photo attached of bus) leaving at 12.30 from the bus station (I had heard it was between 12 and 12.30), Monday-Saturday. Operated by Crucero Del Norte. I took this option, and the cost was ARG$190. The journey takes circa 2.5 hours, and if you tell the driver the name of your Posada they will drop you there.

The journey was good, and not as bumpy as I had expected. They are currently surfacing the first circa 50km of road, so it will get much better. The scenery outside of the window is very nice. When we got to the little bridge in to the town, my jaw hit the floor at how beautiful the lake is. I was the only tourist on the bus, with lots of locals and goods to be delivered to the town.

I stayed at Posada del Jacare, which was really really good. I would definitely recommend it for those on a budget. I booked it through booking.com, but I understand that they might also list on airbnb. There was also a really decent looking campsite by the lake, if you are visiting with your tent or van. I stayed for 3 nights, and managed to get in a boat tour at sunset (ARG$350 - organised through the posada), horseriding (ARG$250), kayaking (ARG$250) and some walks close to the lake. Alongside some relaxation, reading and swimming in the Posada garden. The wildlife and scenery is amazing, but lots of other reviews have covered this. I was very very lucky to have such good weather whilst I visited, especially for April.

Unfortunately, as good as it was I had to leave in the end. To return to Mercedes, you have two options as far as I am aware (outside of a private 4x4 transfer through your Posada).
1. The Crucero Del Norte bus. Leaves Pellegrini at 4am, Monday-Saturday. I understand that this is because it ferries people in to Mercedes for work. I assume the cost is the same as the outward journey.
2. ‎Organising a return trip through the "unofficial" minibus described at number 2 above. I messaged Daniel via WhatsApp. Photo with number in attached images. I was picked up at 14.30 from my Posada. Cost ARG$300.

After arriving in to Mercedes, I travelled on to Rosario on the bus at 19.15, through Rapido Tata. This bus was not listed on Platforma10.

Despite taking over 24 hours to get there from my starting point, I expect this part of the trip to be one of the residing memories of my travels around South America. It really is that amazing. I couldn't get over how unspoilt and non-commercial the place was, right in the heart of Argentina's gaucho territory. I would definitely recommend staying at least 2 nights, given the effort required to get there.

A piece of paradise
srp 2016
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 sun. There are deer, foxes, monkeys and countless birds making the area suburb for wildlife spotting.

The sleepy town easily lulls you into a slower pace of life. The sandy roads allow a gentle stroll around the village with few cars. Horses graze on the verges and dogs happily greet you on each corner.

It's not easy to get to but here's my experience arriving from Puerto Iguazu.

1. Night bus from P. Iguazu to Corrientes - 9 hours
2. Bus from Corrientes to Mercedes (Corrientes) same day - 3.5 hours. Note: There is a Mercedes in the Buenos Aires district so don't confuse them.
3. Overnight in Mercedes. I stayed in El Gauchito hotel. Basic but cheap at 300 pesos for a private room. No food.
4. Minibus to Carlos Pellegrini leaving at 08:30 from outside the bus station. Ask at the bus station tourist office for Daniel. He's very friendly and totally reliable. 300 pesos each way. 3 hours.

Although it's out of the way, it's well worth a trip to get away from the crowds (I went in early August) and feels like you're discovering one of Argentina's best kept secrets.
