Short Description

Our birding trip to Argentina is our most mellow and relaxing trip. We don’t cover a lot of ground, but the places we visit are very dense with wildlife and beauty. This trip focuses on birds, insects and wildlife. Argentina is a wonderful country to visit. Covering nearly 2,200 miles from north to south, Argentina can offer a lot to a traveler.

This trip starts with a night in Buenos Aires before we head out the Misiones and Corrientes Provinces, which are full of pristine neo-tropical rainforest and preserved marshlands.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

The Posada de la Laguna is located at the edge of a small village called Colonia Carlos Pelligrini. It is a nice area to walk around to find neighborhood birds. Posada de la Laguna is a wonderful lodge with excellent gourmet food. It is a very relaxing place with all the finer aspects of travel, but literally out in the middle of nowhere.

Day 10: El Soberbio

We will be staying at Posada la Bonita. Beautiful stone cabins at the edge of a deep forest. Down the side of the hill you will find a 50 foot waterfall that pours into a pool. It is fun to swim in the natural pool, as little fish nip at your toes!!
