The Iberá Wetlands covers an area of 5,200 square miles. Distinct for its thick and fertile marshes, sleepy waterways and clear water lagoons, it's a world away from the pounding rush of the Iguazú Falls to the north. Some consider it one of the best places to see wildlife in Latin America, so bountiful are the species, so fertile the waters, so stunning the natural surrounds.
The wetlands, otherwise known as the Iberá Provincial Nature Reserve, are home to 350 bird species and this ornithological variety makes this a heaven for birdwatchers. Among the species to look out for are the fire red vermilion flycatcher and numerous species of tall wading birds - including the jabiru stork, the tallest stork in the Americas.
Iberá Wetlands tours also offer the chance to spot broad nosed caiman and the larger black nosed caiman, capybara - the world's largest rodent - and to see (or at least hear) black howler monkeys calling through the canopy. A visit to the wetlands ranks as a real Argentina travel highlight.
