The remote ecosystem of the Ibera Marshland provides a perfect home for turtles, black caiman, monkeys, swamp deer, capybara, anaconda, otter, wildcat and maned wolf. The birdwatching is also outstanding.
A humid area of 700,000 hectares in northeastern Argentina, and inaccessible until a few years ago, this vast unexplored area became a refuge and haven for an abundant and varied wildlife. Birdwatching is spectacular here with species ranging from the largest - the greater rhea - to different types of herons, the Maguari stork, various species of eagles and a wide variety of indigenous birds.
Water hyacinth beds form natural dykes on which many kinds of plants and trees grow, and the area can be explored on foot, by canoe and even on horseback. This watery wilderness with its multi-coloured aquatic flowers offers excellent photographic opportunities.
The Ibera Marshlands area is reached via a two-hour flight north from Buenos Aires to the town of Posada, followed by a four-hour drive to the small town of San Juan Poriahu.
