Iberá Wetlands

Puerto Valle

Overview

Style and tradition in the Iberá wetlands

Puerto Valle sits at the northwest end of Iberá National Park, one of the largest wetlands in the world. Its fantastic location gives you exclusive access to the park’s rich wildlife.

The estancia was built in 1868 on the banks of the Paraná River, and today Puerto Valle prides itself on offering guests a unique mix of high-end personalized service, access to nature and a connection to the area’s history, as well as delicious regional food.

The park itself is home to some 85 species of mammals, 35 species of reptiles and 45 species of amphibians. It is also the perfect destination for keen birdwatchers with more than 360 varieties of birds to look out for, most of which are native to the region. This environmentally rich area is also a safe haven for endangered species like black and overo yacarés, red macaws, yellow tordos, marsh deer, maned wolves and Pampas deer. Private access to Laguna Valle and direct access to the Cambyretá Portal, where red macaws are being reintroduced, are a big draw. You’re also well located for visit the 17th century ruins of San Ignacio Mini and within driving distance of Iguazu.
