Posadas is a city of around 350,000 people and serves as the administrative capital for the northeastern Argentinian province of Misiones. It sits beside the Parana River and is linked to Paraguay by a bridge to a town called Encarnacion on the other side. There isn’t much to see in Posadas. It looks like the kind of place you would move to at a point in life when you need to play detox catch up with your mind and body after years of bad air, food and views. It is wonderful to watch from the car window each evening when we arrive back from upcountry many young and attractive people either jogging on the nicely paved and brightly lit riverside esplanade or sitting around sidewalk cafes for coffee and a meal. The highways into and out of the city are wide, empty and newly constructed giving the place an air of quiet prosperity and purpose. The city seems to be there mainly to serve as a hub for the agricultural and forested hinterland as we saw almost no heavy industry. With green surroundings and slight elevation at 350 feet above sea level, the climate of Posadas is subtropical and pleasant although locals have told us that 40 degrees heat in the January summer is common.
