Destinations: Calilegua National Park - Argentina

The Calilegua Nacional Park lies in the south-east of the province of Jujuy, in the very north-west of Argentina. It was created in 1979 to preserve the Yungas forests of the pre-Andes, particularly the flora and fauna of cloud forest habitat. With a surface of 295 m2, it comprises the largest national park in the region and is crossed by marked trails. The park is rich in birdlife and the top-predator is Jaguar.
