Parque Nacional Mburucuyá
On the north side of the Esteros del Iberá, 147 kilometers southeast of Corrientes via RN 12 and the paved lateral RP 13, the small town of Mburucuyá is the gateway to Parque Nacional Mburucuyá, preserving 17,660 hectares of wetlands and palm savannas. Once a Danish-owned estancia, the park offers similar habitat and wildlife to those of Esteros del Iberá, with short nature trails among its marshes, gallery forests, and groves of yatay palms.
The town of Mburucuyá has a couple of simple accommodations, and the park has a basic campground. There is regular bus service from Corrientes, but the park itself lies 11 kilometers east via a dirt road.
