Posadas, the capital city of Misiones and gateway to the rainforest from the south of the province, combines strolls along its waterfront with cultural and culinary proposals, as well as good infrastructure. 

It can be visited all year round. January and February are very hot.

What to see

Part of the history, culture and the most emblematic postcards of Posadas are displayed along its 10 km waterfront, from Costa Sur beach to El Brete.

Jardim botânico e cascata

Além dos balneários, você pode visitar o Jardim Botânico Alberto Roth; uma reserva ecológica de 11 hectares que protege a flora nativa e algumas espécies exóticas da região. Há também um jardim de orquídeas, uma fonte e três trilhas.

Um pouco mais adiante, o Parque La Cantera se destaca por sua cascata artificial de 15 metros de altura com vista para o rio. 

Mural and viewpoint

Continuing along the waterfront there is a mural made by more than 50 artists from Argentina, Peru, Bolivia and Paraguay, which tells the regional history from the time of the Guaraní People and the Jesuits until today. Another stop, in front of the former train station, is the metal pier that spans more than 60 metres into the river.

Monument to Andresito and urban waterfall

Finally, there is the monument to caudillo Andresito Guacurarí, one of the most photographed spots in Posadas, and the General Frías painted staircase, also known as the “urban waterfall” because when it rains it looks like a waterfall.


Costa Sur beach has good infrastructure and facilities, and it is a great place to practise nautical activities. On the other end, El Brete is the beach that lies closest to the city. Five kilometres off the coast of Posadas, Del Medio Island has boomed in recent years. On weekends, many people go there by boat to spend the day outdoors.

Itá Stream Urban Reserve

Located 200 metres from El Brete, this reserve invites you to immerse yourself in nature in the heart of the city. Its 2 hectares are home to more than 100 bird species, as well as numerous butterflies, capybaras, common cavies, coypus and Argentine black and white tegus.

Nautical activities

On the Paraná River you can practice canoeing, enjoy boat and jet ski rides and fish.

How to get there and move around

By car, along National Route 12, which connects Posadas with Buenos Aires (1000 km) and with Puerto Iguazú (306 km).

The city has an airport and a bus station with connections to other destinations in the province.

Where to stay

Posadas offers a wide range of accommodation and cuisine options. Thus, it is a good place to stay or set out on a tour of the region.
