Colonia Carlos Pellegrini: few inhabitants and lots of adventure

In Colonia Carlos Pellegrini, a town in the heart of the Iberá National Park, wild and adventure ecotourism stands out.


Colonia Carlos Pellegrini is one of the less inhabitants of  Corrientes , but a place full of adventures. It is located more than 300 kilometers from the capital and barely passes a thousand inhabitants. It is part of the Iberá National Park, on one of the shores of Laguna Iberá.

The inhabitants are few, but the adventure is very great. As a nature reserve, flora and fauna have their prominence. Life in Colonia Carlos Pellegrini means being on a par with wildlife.

Animal watching is one of the most performed activities, today practiced within the  photographic safari . Weapons are no longer used, shooting with cameras or simply with sight. Visitors seek to save forever images of animals and unique scenes of nature. There are safaris on boats and another night that shows a different Iberá. It is a popular place for bird watching, also for horseback riding and  hiking .

“Wild Ibera”

It is a project funded entirely by the Inter-American Development Bank. It is a center built around the Portal Laguna Iberá that offers interactive information to visitors. This center in Colonia Carlos Pellegrini displays contents that combine natural and historical resources of the place. The building was designed under the concept of “nature production” with which  Correntino tourism works.

“Iberá Adventure”

This is the name used to name the modern eco-tourism complex of Loreto. This project was also built with funds provided by the Inter-American Development Bank. These constructions arise as a need to develop sustainable structure to promote  tourism . This complex allows visitors to Colonia Carlos Pellegrini to plan a longer stay. The modern campsite encourages tourists to extend their stay, multiplying consumption revenues. The project was inaugurated and is a source of jobs and new ventures.

 Esteros del Iberá  is a place that guarantees adventure, putting us face to face with yacares, hundreds of birds, swamp deer and other species. Colonia Carlos Pellegrini offers us a place to rest and recharge.
