August 8th, 2016 Ruta 40 from/to Carlos Pellegrini

At this point is the end/start of asphalted road. Then there are 80 km of dusty road to Carlos Pellegrini.
We did it, with our motorhome 7m long, after a night of rain, and it wasn't really hard. We just have to drive at 30km /h....

Esteros del Ibera is really an area to go. We never saw so much wild life in both America. On the part of the road to Pellegrini, we saw nandus and... a jaguarundi.

August 7th, 2016 Swamp tour in Esteros del Ibera

200 pp. We saw a lot of capybara, caïman yacare negro, one yacare overo, one 3m yellow anaconda, a female marsh deer and too much different species of bird... I recommend the book guide Ibera life and color availlable at ‘La cabana' in the town.
Don't forget to do the 3 walking trails wich start on the Guard Reserve Station, to see some others animals (deers, monkeys). Here you could see an interesting movie too.

August 7th, 2016 Nandu Ru - Ride horse

200ar pp for 2h. This is not a ride like others : sometimes we are going in the wood, sometimes in the pampas, but the more fun is in the swamp. You will be riding an horse with your feet in the water !
Bruno, the owner, is an older mariscador and one of the first guide of Esteros del Ibera. He owns 30 horses ‘criollos' and knows a lot of old stories...

August 5th, 2016 Camping Ibera

Very nice camping. The gate was ok for our RV 3,10m high. Electricity, water potable, barbecue, clean and hot showers...
First night is 80 pp (over 3y) + 20 entrance fee pp. Next is 80 pp only. For our big RV it's 120 more.
Discount if you take boat tour (yes, take it !!!) : we only paid 3 peoples instead 5 for camping.

August 5th, 2016 Ruta 40 from/to Carlos Pellegrini

This road is hard but ok when the weather is dry. We did it with our RV 7m long. We drove at 40 km/h, during 120 km, so it takes 3h.
When it's raining or after big rain, it's too much muddy. Only 4x4 could do it.

Be careful and enjoy. Hope you see as much animals than us. The rare maned wolf was one of this !

August 4th, 2016 Last Gas station before Estero del Ibera

When you want to go to Carlos Pelligrini by Ruta 40, it's the last gas station before the cross.
But be careful, when we were here, there was no more diesel neither super. So it should be better to fill up your tank at Gobernador in the north or Santo Tome in the south.

August 3rd, 2016 A Gauchito Gil Sanctuary with picnic area

We came from Posadas and haven't found anything better on this road (in the dark).
Not really quiet because there is some traffic, and truckers like playing with honk when they see the sanctuary.
But big enough to stay at few meters of the road, with our big rig.
An alcoolic man speaking german is living here. Speaking a lot. He drinks too much, but not a bad guy.

Finally, we saw others areas few km to the south, if you're looking for more quiet.

August 3rd, 2016 Border Paraguay

They were surprised we didn't have any paraguayan temporary import vehicle (we keep our argentian papel, and at Ciudad del Este, they say it's ok without any, if we just stay one week in Paraguay). So, they just have a look in the RV and we could go...

August 3rd, 2016 Border Argentina

They have a look in the RV and we could go. We don't need a temporary importation vehicule paper, because we keep it one week ago, when we left Argentina, at Iguazu :-)

July 31st, 2016 At 150m from the main road

July 29th, 2016 Close to the Instituto Tecnologico Iguazu

Not sure it will be ok every time, but actually, there isn't a lot of people at this school. There are some places on the parking, or at the end of the road.
Was very quiet.
