Lonely Planet review
Confined to a narrow strip no wider than about 50km (31mi), Argentina's subtropical humid forests extend from the Bolivian frontier south of Tarija almost to the border of Tucumán and Catamarca provinces. Comprising 44,000 hectares (108,726 acres), Parque Nacional Finca El Rey is the southernmost Argentine park protecting this unusual habitat, the most biologically diverse in the country.
The best time to visit the national park is between April and October - it's a bit cooler, but much drier! For all inquiries, contact the park office in Salta (España 366, 3rd fl).
