Discover the biodiversity of the 'La Macarena' wetlands, a unique ecosystem situated on the outskirts Montevideo where you will discover the extensive flora and fauna of Uruguay.
Eco Farm Tour
After collecting you from your hotel in Montevideo we will head to a fruit farm and nature reserve called 'La Macarena'.
Our tour of this unique ecosystem begins at the Visitor's Center. Besides admiring the natural features of this territory, you will also discover how the different fruit products are cultivated. We then set off on a hike around the area so you can discover the fauna an flora in more detail. This area has the privilege of being the only salt marsh wetland area in Uruguay. On this route, we will see foxes, otters, capybaras, and various species of birds that inhabit this area.
After the walk, you will enjoy a pleasant boat ride on the wetlands of Santa Lucia, not far from La Macarena. Around midday, we will refuel with a tasty Uruguayan lunch served on the ranch. The menu includes a starter, a main course, a dessert, and a soft drink or glass of wine.
After eating you will have the afternoon free to explore the wetlands at your leisure, either on a fun paddle boat or by taking a gentle stroll along the banks of the river. Later, we will meet back up to enjoy a tasty afternoon snack of artisan cake and a coffee, tea, or a fruit juice.
After the food, we will take you back to your hotel in Montevideo.
