While in some cities of the world tourism is accused of being responsible for all its ills, in other latitudes this activity opens up new possibilities for the inhabitants -especially for young people- who would have emigrated if they had not had this incentive. This happens in the Iberá reserve (Corrientes), the second largest wetland in the world.

In this region, for some years now, eco-tourism has been encouraged by the local inhabitants, how does this work? They are the ones who act as guides, hosts, cooks. Those who receive visitors and show them first-hand all the wonders hidden in this unique landscape with pastures, marshes and a special and incredible fauna.

Among the experiences offered to tourists, there is one that attracts attention: horse-drawn canoe rides are offered, when the terrain is shallow and swimming with the water around the neck in the deepest areas. It is a different kind of tourism, a tourism that seeks to live like the locals, adapting to the environment. There, the ecosystem is in charge, not man.

Places like the Iberá reserve do not go unnoticed by our lives: they mark us, they teach us, they leave us experiences that are not compared to any other… What do you think, then, to give an opportunity to eco-tourism?
