The best way to appreciate the area. The classic trip is a two- to three-hour excursion in a lancha (boat) around the Laguna Iberá and its embalsados. You’ll see myriad bird and animal life, elegant lilies, water hyacinths and other aquatic plants. The guide will punt you remarkably close to the creatures. You can also take night trips; take plenty of insect repellent.

Boats leave with a minimum of four clients but you can pay any remaining seats if you're in a hurry or want a private cruise.
