It holds the unique experience of witnessing 300-year-old palm trees in the El Palmar forest as well as a diverse ecosystem in the Ibera Wetlands.

The Great Mocona Fall, a three-kilometer-long canyon that serves as the one of continent's biggest fresh water reserves, is also situated in this part of the region, together with the famous Iguazu Falls.
