The region includes many diverse species of animals and more than 300 species of bird.

From Buenos Aires, the trip is about 1.5 hours by air and more than 12 hours of travel if visitors arrive by land. The wetlands are a freshwater reservoir of lagoons and swamps. Some are home to dangerous animals, such as cayman. It’s advised to go through a reputable company when deciding to trek to avoid dangerous creatures. The wetlands are also great for bird watchers, and visitors to bound to catch a glimpse of many.


Argentina has done a great job preserving the land and keeping it untouched by urbanization. This land is essential to preserving wildlife and will remain important. Since 1982, part of the wetland, about 5,000 square miles, is protected. There are plans to further the protection to either include the entire wetland or increase the level of protection.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
