What to see
The abundance of caiman yacares, capybaras, yellow anacondas, brocket deer and more than 300 species of birds is surprising; among them are the jabiru (the largest stork in the Americas) and other aquatic birds that, at certain times of the year, gather by the thousands to feed from fish.
The best thing is to book a tour in the town of Las Lomitas and take the two entrance paths to discover the wetland, by canoe or boat, horse riding and hiking.
El Vertedero and Fortín La Soledad
Located 45 km from Las Lomitas on Provincial Route 28 (paved, easily accessible), the Vertedero is a waterway structure built to manage water by means of a gate system. Anglers usually stand over the bridge on the banks of the Bañado. From the route, you can appreciate different species of birds, capybaras and caiman yacares.
Another interesting point is the Fortín La Soledad, a place that has its origin in the overflows and flooding caused by the Pilcomayo River. Around 80 families live there today. It is located 65 km from Las Lomitas and can be accessed through Provincial Route 32 (dirt road).
Both in Fortín La Soledad and near Provincial Route 28, you can take trails in the company of the "Campo del Cielo" Pilagá community.
This region is not only an approach to an overwhelming nature, but also to the traditions of different native communities (Pilagá, Wichí and Toba) that live in an environment shaped by the Pilcomayo River.
