- Delta del Paraná: ARGENTINA
- February through April
- 3 days, 2 nights
Most people don’t know that just 30kms from Buenos Aires lies an incredible and extensive delta like haven. It’s such an amazing thing to see as you slowly leave civilization behind you. The noises – and smells of cars, taxis and buses are replaced by the singing of the birds, the sound of the leaves and branches dancing with the breeze and the beautiful sound of water playing around. The first night you’ll spend in Paraná de las Palmas, right on the border between civilization and wildlife. The next morning you’ll cross Paraná de las Palmas and go deep into the wild. It´s impressive how the scenery changes from touristic to rural just from crossing the Paraná branch. That’s where you’ll spend the second night and on the third day your senses will finally be attuned with nature, allowing your eyes and ears to open even wider. When you leave this amazing refuge you’ll take home memories that will last forever.
Day 1: We started off towards Paraná de las Palmas at 9:30 a.m. from Arroyo Abra Vieja in Tigre. Around midday we stopped in a beautiful picnic area in Arroyo Rama Negra to have some lunch. After filling our bellies we walked around the coastal path appreciating the view and the islander’s laid-back lifestyle. We got to our camping in Paraná de las Palmas later that afternoon and kissed the sun goodbye sipping a tasty mate. Dinner was a real feast for the senses and I’m not just talking about the food. A clear and starred sky embraced us from above while the quiet stream licked our finger toes.
Day 2: The next morning we woke up early to cross the majestic Paraná de las Palmas into the second section of the delta. We went through el Aguaje del Durazno stream and into the wild. So much green! Very few people visit this area and even fewer live here, mostly because at the center of the section lies the Biosphere reserve, and it is scientist terrain. We stopped somewhere in Arroyo Chaná to have something to eat and then continued all the way to Paraná Miní where we were once again blessed by an incredible sunset.
Day 3: After a nutritious breakfast we started off back to Tigre. Fortunately the tide was on our side so it didn’t take us long to get back :)
