The Iberá Marshlands image

The Iberá (from a native guaraní word meaning ‘brilliant waters’) are wetlands that cover over a million hectares and are fed by the river Paraná and its tributaries. The water levels vary throughout the year, and the area is very rich in wildlife, particularly birds (over 350 species).

The main gateways are Posadas, Corrientes or Mercedes, and there are several charming estancias offering comfortable accommodation, a few of which also specialise in fishing (the main attraction is the golden dorado).

    Estancia/Ranch - Southern Iberá
    A wonderful estancia on the southern edge of the Iberá wetlands. The 12,000 hectare former cattle ranch was acquired by the ecologist Douglas Tompkins together with two other local estancias in the area (Batel and San Alonso) and converted into a private nature reserve. The main building features a comfortable lounge, with plenty of information on the surrounding wildlife and environmental issues, a well-stocked bar and dining room. Outside is a small pool and separate building for barbecues. Food is excellent, all organic and home grown in the impressive kitchen gardens. Access to the estancia is via a gravel road from either Posadas or Mercedes, or by private plane.
