Searching for Capybara in Ibera
Puerto Valle lodge, a new addition to our Latin America accommodation selection, is located on the edge of the Parana River and the Iberá Wetlands. This incredible location creates a superb wildlife experience, exploring the grounds of the lodge with an expert guide for the wonderful capybara. Puerto Valle has a number of magnificent horses available for trekking in search for the sociable capybara, often spotted in large groups. Don’t get too close though as they have huge teeth and weigh up to 160lbs. Although sometimes domesticated, like any wild animal they should be treated with respect and kept at safe distance.
After your capybara filled days, spend your evenings enjoying delicious local food with a robust, smooth red malbec. This is a quintessentially Argentinean way to finish your day of capybara wildlife heaven.
