When to go
From a climate point of view, most rain falls Oct-Apr. Temperatures range from 30°C in Jan down to 20°C in Jul. Wildlife can be viewed throughout the year but is more subdued in winter. Birdwatching is at its best Apr-Oct.
Getting local currency
Argentine Peso. Notes can be withdrawn from the many ATMs in larger towns and cities using a UK credit or debit card. Limits may be lower than your UK bank allows. Acquire pesos before you head out into the reserve.
GMT -3 hours. Sometimes daylight saving is observed in the summer, but this is announced ad hoc on a year-on-year basis.
Fly from Buenos Aires to Posadas (1hr, followed by a drive of 5hrs) or to Mercedes in Corrientes (plus a 2-3 hour drive). There are also private charter flights to some of the lodges.
A visit to the capital Buenos Aires; the Iguazú Falls (471 km) with a scenic nature drive to Pelligrini from Puerto Iguazú (8-10hrs on partially paved road).
