A new river cruises that will connect the Esteros del Ibera with the Iguazu Falls.

 The company Quasar Expeditions, which offers luxury cruises in the Galapagos Islands (Ecuador) and safaris through Patagonia, will invest 6 million dollars in the implementation of river cruises that will connect the Esteros del Ibera with the Iguazu Falls. This is not the first time they are trying to start exploiting this point on the coast, but Eduardo Diez, CEO of the company, told HOSTELTUR LATAM, “today there is a very good environment to come and invest.”
“The project here we had thought for many years, the first time we started walking we had a problem other than Argentina, which was the fall of investment markets in early 2000 and did not raise capital, then stayed in the refrigerator to take it out at the moment we can execute it, “explained Diez after his move to SAHIC 2017 to participate in a panel on investment opportunities in hotel and tourism.
“We decided to come to Argentina because there is a very good environment created by the current government to come and invest here. They have taken steps to change the structure, especially the legal framework for foreign investment and that is the correct first step to attract it, “said the CEO of Quasar Expeditions, adding that” with the existing opening and with part of our own resources we are executing the cruise to take advantage of the beauty of the Upper Paraná, between the area of ​​Ituzaingó (Corrientes), which is the beginning of Esteros del Ibera, to the Iguazu Falls.
For these river cruises, whose operation is expected for the end of 2018, a ship that is currently in Genoa will be used and will be brought to nationalize it and finish refurbishing it. It will have approximately 50 meters of length and will be configured with 15 double cabins, for 30 passengers and 15 crew.

“Until the project starts operating we will be in 6 million dollars of investment and when the boat is already operating, by the end of 2018, we will be in 40 jobs.” Eduardo Diez told HOSTELTUR LATAM.
The base of operations will be in Misiones and in principle the itineraries will be three or four nights “because the trend of the tourist that goes to that region is to stay 2.5 nights and little by little we want to go migrating to what we do, which are seven-night cruises. ”
In addition to promoting the Iguazú Falls and the Esteros del Iberá, it is planned to make intermediate stops that include tours to know the Jesuit Reductions and cultivation routes of mate and tea.
To conclude, Diez remarked that “it is a success to bet on the Litoral region because everything related to nature is increasingly attractive” and made it clear that the decision to start by Iguazu responds that thanks to the Falls is already a installed brand, but it is not ruled out taking the product to other areas with rivers suitable for cruises.
It is worth recalling, as published by HOSTELTUR LATAM months ago, that the Ministry of Tourism, the Federal Investment Council and the provinces of Santa Fe, Entre Ríos, Corrientes and Misiones signed an agreement to create the Litoral Fluvial Corridor. construction of five fluvial terminals.
