To the water duck! Meet the summer option of the formoseños

We invite you to discover La Laguna Oca in the province of Formosa, the best option for summer.

Laguna Oca Formosa

La  Laguna Oca  is just 10 minutes from the centre of the capital of  Formosa  . It is undoubtedly  the summer option par excellence that allows Formoseños to have a  unique contact with nature and enjoy beautiful days outdoors.  But not only this, it also has attractive proposals that include recreational activities such as water sports, music events and all kinds of fun for different ages.

This wonderful  natural area  is unique as it is  the first Unesco Urban Biosphere Reserve created in the world  and has an area of 10,500 hectares. There  inhabit countless species of flora and fauna  that contribute to the richness of the environment. That was the reason for his declaration   in 2001. The Global Network of Biospheres Reserves was formed by the International Coordinating Council (ICC).

In this sense, it is considered as  a space in which different types of ecosystems coexist.  It is located on the right bank of the Paraguay River and is the perfect place for  ecotourism lovers. 

What to do in the Laguna Oca Biosphere Reserve

This impressive wetland  also works as a spa and is easily accessible  making it one of the best proposals to cope with heated summer days. But it also represents a green lung that is used for long walks and even cycling. Tourism authorities consistently organize different sports days and leisure activities. In addition, it has everything necessary for families to have a picnic surrounded by nature on tables and grills to enjoy a delicious roast.

Among the rides stand out trips by boat and kayak always with security personnel.Musical shows are also organized, and as if this were not enough  there is an exclusive place of massage therapy  to relax through massages provided by professionals. For the little ones there are players and beach games so no one is out of the fun.

  Hiking and bird watching with a photo safari are also available.  Carrying out this experience allows you to enjoy the wide variety of flora and fauna. The mountain has one of the most important floristic reserves in the country, and tree species such as quebracho, colorado chaqueño, black carob, mistol and chañar, among others.

As for animals there is a varied group of reptiles where the yacaré and the overa iguana stand out. Among the birds, just to name a few are the crowned eagle, the royal duck, the tapicuru, big yasiyareté and the yellow-wing cattle. In addition, here inhabits the anteater, melero, howler monkey and many more.

It is worth mentioning that the Oca  Lagoon  was enabled since August so that people can visit it between 9:00 and 17:00. Little by little, more activities are being allowed to take care provided that the health protocols established by the provincial government are respected. As is done in other open spaces, to date it is possible to make walks as well as be able to use the bicycles on the established days and times.
