Costanera de Formosa

Reviewed By Gene J - Silver Spring, Maryland

We took a taxi(90 Ap) from the Terminal de Ómnibus 3km to the Cathedral, finding it closed. We walked 300 meters further to the Regional Historical Museum, finding it under renovation, then stopped in the Government House, with little to see. Nearing the port, we found activity with people sitting along the river viewpoint watching the ferry's cross to nearby Paraguay. This was the beginning of the lovely 2km Costanera that follows the river's curve with trees and nicely spaced park benches. At one point we looked across the highway to a large "Last Supper" sculpture.
This is a perfect walkway for a late afternoon stroll in this very hot humid environment.

Iglesia Catedral Nuestra Senora del Carmen

Reviewed By JazCazal

Very well kept as most of the historical buildings around this area of town, see it at night where the lights make it even more impressive.

Herradura

Reviewed By Jorge G - Buenos Aires, Argentina

La localidad de Herradura está a unos 40 km de Formosa Capital, a la costa del rio. Existen cabañas, bungalows y casas de fin de semana con piscinas, parques con parrilla y mesas. En fin, un lugar para pasar un domingo o un fin de semana en contacto con la naturaleza. Hay alquiler de lanchas, de equipos de pesca, etc. Anualmente se festeja la Fiesta de la Corvina. Muy recomendable

Formosa Receptiva

We approach to you the best of a natural undiscovered place in the North part of Argentina, The Chaco Region in Formosa. Te acercamos lo mejor de un lugar natural inexplorado, con cientos de rincones verdes por descubrir de la vasta región del Norte Argentina, Región Chaqueña en Formosa

Reviewed By miss_saigonlondon - London, United Kingdom

My daughter (5) loves animals and nature. A friend recommended Formosa Receptiva for their tours. Despite my last minute call they were able to accomodate our request. Well organised, not too formal, unrushed, helpful and informative, we went to Herradura (around 40km away). We went to explore the lagoon & surroundings. We saw monkeys, birds, etc. Nature at its best. Juan was specially great with my daughter (& his English was good as he lived in NZ). We finished the excursion at their Campo where we saw some more animals and had a great tea with homemade bread and chipa. We had a lot of fun. A great option for those visiting the city.
Realmente recomendable, un gran paseo que permite explorar y disfrutar de la naturaleza. Fuimos con mi hija de 5 anos, ella lo disfruto muchisimo. Terminamos el paseo con un te con pan casero y chipas en La Carmela. Juan, el guia, es encantador y muy amable. Nos conto muchas anecdotas y nos mostro animales y pajaros de la zona. Muy buena opcion.

Laguna Oca

Reviewed By macarmarina - Formosa, Argentina

es una zona dentro de la biosfera de Formosa o sea todo es virgen, es muy lindo, una laguna en el medio de la ciudad. Como para pasar u buen momento de relax en contacto con la naturaleza. en verano se arma un balneario, se puede recorrer en bote o lancha, cruzar a la isla cercana. Ideal para los amantes de la vida silvestre. En este momento la altura del rio y la inundacion estan impidiendo la visita.

Casa de la Artesania

Reviewed By Javier R - Buenos Aires, Argentina

this is not a museum, it is a shop in a good old house. Look for the attendant who knows about the tribes and communities. Very nice woven art crafts made by Wichis, Qom and Tobas.
