Client comments and reviews
We saw amazing wildlife in the wetlands. The tours - by boat, driving and on foot, were well done and the lodge was very nice. I wouldn't say the food was excellent, but it was good apart from a rather spare dinner on our first night! - SH (November 2013)
Very few birdwatchers we have spoken to know much about the Ibera Marshes or even where they are but they are excellent for birds and wildlife. The Pousada Aguape is well located and provides excellent guides and trips to see the birds and animals. Although it requires a bit of effort to get there taking the overnight bus, it is certainly worth it. - SL (November 2008)
Aguape was a magic place, with food to die for! - RB (October 2007)
Posada Aguapé was very good - peaceful and Nando our guide was very knowledgable about where to find wildlife and patient with our lack of Spanish. Food was particularly good too. The overnight bus from Buenos Aires getting there was fantastic - comfortable and on time. - CC (March 2007)
