Overview

Once the haunt of hunters targeting the cornucopia of wildlife this remote region of marshy wetlands, lagoons, floating islands and streams is now protected as  a nature reserve. Wildlife has resurged, with caiman, otters, swamp deer, capybaras, wolves, howler monkeys and over 400 species of bird thrive there. The remoteness of the region in northern Argentina restricted tourism in the past, but now the area is opening up to visitors in a low key way, with friendly lodges where the accent is on relaxation and water-borne or horseback exploration.

Where to go when - our guide to Ibera wetlands

Estancia Rincon del Socorro

The weather in Ibera wetlands is wide and varied

These marshy wetlands are home to caiman, otters, howler monkeys and wolves, plus hundreds of species of bird. Weather wise this is a year-round destination, though the temperature grows extremely hot during summer (Dec - Feb) which can be uncomfortable. Autumn (March - May) and spring (September - November) bring cooler climates more suited to exploring the floating islands, lagoons and silvery streams of this protected nature reserve. In winter, temperatures drop to 20°C and wildlife is more subdued. The most rain falls between October and April, and a deluge of colourful birds migrate en masse between September and April.
