Peaceful Retreat From Bustling Buenos Aires

Small Lodge in the Ecological Reserve Costanera Sur in Buenos Aires, Argentina
The National Park and Ecological Reserve Costanera Sur is a very young recreation area in close proximity to downtown Buenos Aires. This small little hut is located at a lagoon separated by a dam from the Río de la Plata (River Plate). It invites to rest in a peaceful atmosphere, watch birds or go fishing and forget about the rush of the Argentine Capital.

Isn't "plata" Spanish for silver?

Sounds and looks like a very relaxing place!

Yes, indeed, plata means silver. But there was no silver at all. The conquistadores searched for it for centuries but did not find an ounce.
