La esencia del lujo

(…) The alligators disappeared in an instant under the water and swam towards the shore, where they sunk, leaving only the nose and eyes out of the water (...)

The Bustling Waters of the Falls

Legend says that in order to calm the Boi snake that inhabited the great waters of the Iguazú River, the Guaranís made maiden sacrifices. On one occasion, the maid meant for the snake tried to escape with her love, and to prevent this, the snake transformed the maid into waterfalls and her beloved into the tree that gives shade: keeping them apart forever. Ever since that moment, the snake roars objecting to their love and that is the sound of the Garganta del Diablo (Devil's throat). There are 80 metres of waterfalls; 80 metres of passion. Waters that howl about Love Legends.

260 cascades of natural wonder: the Iguazú falls.

The Calm Waters of the Estuaries

Brilliant waters, that’s how the Guaranis call these calm waters of the Esteros del Iberá (Iberá Estuaries), surely due to the way the moon reflected on the surface of the lagoons.
Scientific theories about their formation are as many as the stories that transcend their nights. They say that the Princess Iberá, heroic daughter of the Guarani Chieftain, immersed herself in the estuaries to protect the dignity of her people and that’s why the estuaries bear her name...
Truth is that in this vast reserve, one of the most important ones of fresh water in the planet; swamps, ravines, lagoons and estuaries embrace islets and are home to countless and unique numbers of species.

1,400,000 acres of wetland and biodiversity.

The Sweet Waters of the Rivers

It is said that in the opulent rivers of the Litoral (coast) have occurred the bolder demonstrations of bravery. Myths of these rivers... Paraná, Uruguay, Pilcomayo, Gualeguay... rivers of abundant and generous streams that shelter virgin forests and giant trees, and are home to unique flora and fauna species. Combative fish, aggressive fish, Golden fish, hunting fish, tigers of the River; great and small, all masters of these sweet Litoral waters.

Hundreds of kilometres of cheerful flows.

The Waters of the Mate

In the basins of the Paraná River there grows a plant that once dried, cut and milled will be the source of the mate beverage. It is the Argentinian infusion. Bitter and popular. The water temperature is essential, and will be ready just before it starts to boil. Inside the mate (the vessel), once the herb is served, the drinking straw (silver, metal or cane straw) is placed and water is poured. The same must not be removed from that location in order to enjoy a good mate.

Centuries of tradition and rituals.
