Reserva Ecológica Costanera Sur information
The beautifully marshy land of this 350-hectare nature reserve has become a popular site for weekend picnics and walks. Bring binoculars if you're a birder – over 200 bird species can be spotted, along with river turtles, iguanas and nutria. Further in at the eastern shoreline of the reserve you can get a close-up view of the Río de la Plata’s muddy waters.
Tours are given on weekends; monthly Friday night full moon tours are also available (call for schedules). On warm weekends and holidays you can rent bikes just outside either the northern or southern entrances.
