Santa Fe, meeting nature in its purest form

In Santa Fe, in the Villa Ocampo region, is the Ramsar Jaaukanigas, a wetland developed by the Paraná River. It's a unique experience.

Santa Fe

When we think about the joys that come with travel adventures, we often imagine exciting trips to beautiful places for perfect photography, unique meals you won't find at home, and encounters with people who are very different from ours.   Tourism   allows us to do more than just learn data about various places. It allows us to immerse ourselves in the   cultures   and   lifestyles of   others and leaves impressions durable ones that will probably not be forgotten.

The rewards that come with the novelty and successful learning experiences of travel are irreplaceable, and these benefits can be enhanced through  ecotourism . The ecotourist travels with more than a personal satisfaction in mind. It helps the planet and allows people to lead a  fuller life .

Local communities, especially those that do not thrive by industrial means, benefit greatly from tourists who respect their land while providing additional funds. In unspoilt regions, we are offered a sightseeing experience that reminds us of the enchanting qualities of  nature  and commonly present us to welcoming residents.

As we explore unknown places in a  spirit  of curiosity and kindness, we begin important discussions with locals and other visitors. Through their stories, we have an insight into what  people 's needs and desires are.

Memories are always original and can keep you lit on the darkest days. You can create your own memories with  photographs  you take from amazing places or show locals that you back up their talents by purchasing handmade items.

The impossible doesn't seem so impossible anymore. There are so many places we see that are beautiful and seem so far away. When you finally reach the  fate  of your dreams, you are showing yourself that the impossible can be achieved and that you can make your wildest dreams come true.

Wake up forgotten sensations in Jaaukanigas

 Argentina  has a tourist wealth not sized by those who live here. Areas where natural catches and dazzles. Unbeatable places that ask to be traveled. Spaces to find unique experiences that connect with our intimacy.
