Description

Chilo is a guide with whom you can make excursions into the Bañado on pole boats to really see the diversity in flora and fauna. You can see a lot of different birds including the famous Jabiru, caymans (yacaré) or big snakes.
They also have rooms to stay the night (with very basic bathrooms), meals and you can camp there.
To get to the place you have to take a 65km dirtroad that isn't too good but busses made it too.
The price for the boat trip was 500ARS (10U$D at the time) which I think was OK as we were on the water about 3 hours and the place is amazing (take a look at the fotos)!!!
I guess it is better to contact them before you come (+54 9 370 154608983 or via Facebook chio.ruiz.56)

espectacular paseo por el bañado la estrella con Chilo y su bote. lo hicimos con la puesta del sol y fue alucinante. Muy buena onda y muy atento Chilo y sabe mucho también. cuando volvimos decidimos quedarnos en su hospedaje porque todo se veía muy lindo y ameno y toda la familia muy predispuesta.
cenamos un guiso muy rico y dormimos muy bien también. Las habitaciones tienen aire acondicionado, no tuvimos que usarlo porque tuvimos noche frequista.

Oh yes this tour with chilo was amazing. We paid 600 pesos pp and absolutely worth it. Even if we didn't see so many animals (its better to come between june and september) the Banado and the sunset was incredible beautiful. Chilo is also building cabanas next to his house for the tourists. We had a great traditional asado and absolutely recommend to visit this place. Update on chilos number: +54 9 370 4608983

AMAZING place. You can do the boat tour at any time of the day, better at the sunrise or sunset 😊 Chilo also do the tour at night time with the full moon.
you can camp for free in his patio (his wife is adorable and provides you with everything you need), make fire and use the bathroom.
Contact CHILO RUIZ in Facebook or just go directly at his home in Fortin Soledad (he's the only "official" guides, other people in the village asked us to do the tour with them but I think is better to do it with Chilo....).
Worth the 65km of dirt road.
