[edit] Access and Facilities

This National Park lies 54 Km north of the city of Col�n and 60 Km south of the city of Concordia on the national route 14 in the province of Entre Rios.

At the park the only posibility to stay the night is camping. There is a little store where you could buy food. Hotel you'll find at the city of Colon or at Concordia.

You'll need a car to get there. It's a good place to visit if you hire a car and drive from Buenos Aires to the Iguazu Falls in Misiones.
