Costanero Walk - Beach Posadas - Argentina

Definitely take a stroll along the Costanero, especially on the weekend if you get a chance. The lively scene, both day and night and the sheer amount of Mate being consumed is unbelievable. Drink a beer, rent a sailboat or kayak, check out the views, head to the beach and stick around for the nightlife.

The hub of the Costanera is the Puerto, at the end of Avenida Guacurar铆. From the port leave launches to Encarnaci贸n, Paraguay. Also docked here is the Ezequiel Ramos Mej铆a ferrobarco, an old railroad ferry that is now a museum. At the port entrance roundabout is a monument to those who fought in the Malvinas War. A square metal arch hovers above three large stone blocks.

South along the Costanera is Capilla Stella Maris, an ark-shaped church. First built of wood in 1959, it was destroyed by a storm in 1970. The present brick chapel was inaugurated in 2007. Towards the bridge, the shore is fringed with embalses, or swamps. Along this stretch are several restaurants. At the end of the boulevard, where the train station used to be, the Centro Cultural La Estaci贸n and a Museo Ferroviario are being built.

Just north of the port the Bajada Vieja meets the riverside road. At this juncture is Plazoleta Nuestra Se帽ora de la Anunciaci贸n de Itap煤a. It was here, legend says, Jesuit priest Roque Gonz谩lez de Santa Cruz founded the reducci贸n of the same name on March 25, 1615. Continuing in this direction, the Costanera passes along the base of cliffs and the Anfiteatro Manuel A. Ram铆rez, finally ending at Playa Itacurubi, also called La Playita. On this small beach are a restaurant and the Club de Canotaje (Canoeing Club). All along this stretch are bistros and bars where you can cool off.
