Guided Tours and Birdwatching at the Ecological Reserve

The Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve is a lush greenspace only a short walk from the noise and commotion of downtown Buenos Aires. Go to escape the city and immerse yourself in nature without having to take a major excursion.

Porteños and tourists go to the reserve to jog, bike, stroll and birdwatch. I’m told there are several hundred species of birds in the reserve. Bikes are available for rent.

Saturdays, Sundays and holidays guided tours are available at 10:30am and 3:30pm. Check in at the visitors’ center inside the park. The tour takes a couple of hours. Space is limited so it’s a good idea to call or email in advance. The phone number is 0800-444-5343 and the email is  

The last time I visited the reserve it was thick with mosquitos so bring insect repellent. 

From April to October the park is open from 8am to 6pm. From November to March, 8am to 7pm. It’s closed on Mondays. Night tours are occasionally offered. You can check the current schedule and get more information here. Admission is free.

The Ecological Reserve is located just east of Puerto Madero at Avenida Tristán Achával Rodríguez 1550. Here is a map. Click to enlarge it.
