Las Marías is the world's biggest producer of yerba mate - this is where Yerba Taragüí is born, a brand, synonymous with mate not only in Argentina. All stages of yerba mate production are undertaken with integrated agroindustrial practices of the highest quality. The company also produces the best tea in America, plants trees on a large-scale - operating one of the largest sawmills in the country. We also are at the forefront in cattle ranching and breeding, the traditional activity in this region, which was introduced by the Jesuits four centuries ago. It could be understood that the main reason for thousands of visitors to come to Las Marías each year is because of its fascinating network of productive activities. However, once visitors arrive here, they discover its greatest charm: its people. Aside from the work, the many activities that make up the lives of the company's members take place here: Homes, schools, health care and other services are interwoven with parks and gardens enhancing the beauty of the natural environment by creating peaceful spaces. Tree lined roads and trails connect these different areas, giving Las Marías a unique harmony that, without exception, enchant the visitor.

We stayed in Posadas for 2 nights, hoping to visit the Paraguayan Jesuit missions, but some protestors blocked the bridge to Encarnación so we asked our hotel to arrange for us a day trip on the Argentinean side. Unfortunately, the receptionist forgot to check if Las Marias offered tours in English. After almost 2 hours on the road (traffic delayed... More
