Nature in all its splendour

In Formosa, nature shines in all its splendor. What are you waiting for to enjoy it?

If the intention is to enjoy the outdoors, Formosa is a great destination: although it is generally not one of the most visited, this province offers really fascinating sites. Pilcomayo River National Park is a great example of this. Pilcomayo River National Park is located in the northeast of the province of Formosa and covers 47,754 hectares bordering the river that gives it its name and limits with the Republic of Paraguay. Due to its bioenvironmental relevance, this reserve was included in the list of wetlands of international importance (Ramsar Convention). Almost the entire protected area is covered with grasslands and palm trees. In the lowlands the marshes extend and in the highest points the islets of mount. There live jaguars, anteaters, yacares, capybaras, and various kinds of monkeys, among other animals. This Reserve is an excellent example of how natural resources can be exploited without destroying them: for a long time, the region was inhabited by indigenous groups who exploited the resources of the riverside environment through a wise sustainable strategy that combined hunting, fishing and the collection of vegetable and animal products (mollusks). The Toba communities are those who currently inhabit the lands of their ancestors, the first owners of the lagoons, estuaries and marshes. Today, the joint work of settlers and park rangers makes it possible to control the hunting of animals within the Reserve and recover areas of natural vegetation. The park can be visited through two interpretation trails, and inside there is a camping site. In Formosa, nature shines in all its splendor. What are you waiting for to enjoy it?
