What to do at Pira Lodge?

From sight-fishing the labyrinth of the marsh’s headwaters to casting streamers in the lower reaches of the Corrientes River, every day offers a new world-class fishing experience.

Off the water, Pira Lodge is equally thrilling and impressive. Explore the wild wetlands on horseback or foot taking in a patchwork of exotic birds and encountering a diverse array of wildlife, from capybaras and caimans, to marsh deer and howler monkeys.

The lodge is your tranquil oasis to rest and recharge. Dip in the pool, enjoy a soothing massage or simply put your feet up on the veranda and take in the serene beauty of the surrounding marshlands.

When the day draws to an end, gather around the swimming pool for sundowners before indulging in a traditional asado (Argentine Barbecue).

Map & location

Pirá Lodge sits on the banks of the Parana River in the middle of the Iberá Marshland Nature Reserve in the Corrientes Province of Northeast Argentina.

There are daily flights from Buenos Aires to both Corrientes (CNQ) and Resistencia (RES). Flight time is approximately 1 hour. Upon arrival, transfer by land to the lodge (4 hours from CNQ and 5 hours from RES). 

Alternatively, Pirá Lodge has a 5,000-foot grass landing strip. A private charter from Buenos Aires takes about 2 hours. If the grass landing strip is unavailable (due to weather), there’s an asphalt landing strip in Mercedes, located just over an hour away from Pirá by car.

When to Travel

Spring (September into late December): This is when everything in the wetlands is flourishing; the Dorado wakes up, hundreds of migratory birds hatch and the flowers begin to bloom. This time of year also corresponds with the beginning of the rainy season.

Summer (December to February): It’s a great time for fishing, wildlife spotting, and exploring the wetlands. However, keep in mind that it can be hot and humid.

Autumn (March to May): The temperatures start to cool down but the wetlands remain lush, wildlife sightings continue and fishing is still very good. It’s a quieter time with fewer tourists compared to summer.

Winter (June to August): This is a great time of year to visit if you prefer cooler weather and fewer crowds. Fishing can still be rewarding and wildlife is still present, though some species may be less active.
