DESTINATIONS & MAPS
Misiones, Corrientes, Entre Rios.
This region is best known for the thunderous Cataratas del Iguazú, one of the most impressive waterfalls in the world. Bordering Brazil and Paraguay, Iguazú National Park (World Heritage Site) is home to over 2,000 species of tropical plants and exotic wildlife. We can give you an insider’s tour of the falls, showing you the most breathtaking views and teaching you all about this natural wonder.
Heading south to the province of Corrientes, we will go deep inside the Esteros del Iberá or Iberá Wetlands, a region of estuaries, lagoons and marshes, which occupy over 5,000 square miles of native flora and fauna. Renowned for its biodiversity, Iberá is home to 350 species of birds, caymans, capybaras, swamp deer, boa constrictors, and many more creatures.
This region also harbors the ruins of several missions where the Spanish Jesuits preached the gospel to the Guaraní Indian population, in the 17th Century (World Heritage Site). We can tour these ruins and take a peek back in history and then continue on to get a taste of agricultural life by visiting various estancias, historic rural properties that produce, among other things, something fundamental to Argentine culture: mate along with other varieties of tea leaves.
WHEN TO GO:
Spring is a good time to enjoy the green of the jungle and the enormous volumes of water thundering down the Iguazú Falls, yet the falls are impressive all year long.
