Introducing Formosa

Travelers heading to Formosa might get a mystified ‘why?’ from residents of other Argentine cities, but it’s quite a sweet little city and provincial capital set on a horseshoe bend of the Río Paraguay. It makes a decent place to stop (far better than Clorinda) en route to Paraguay or Parque Nacional Río Pilcomayo. It’s blazing hot in summer, with high humidity levels, but as the sun goes down, its riverside area makes a great place to stroll. You can even duck across the river for a taste of Paraguay if you wish.
