Entre Ríos is a northeastern province of Argentina. The capital is Paraná. It is on the Paraná River, opposite the city of Santa Fe.

Most of the money for the province comes from agriculture. Products include rice, soybeans, wheat, maize, and citrus. The province also produces a large amount of chickens and eggs.

The land is almost completely flat. The name of the province means "between rivers". El Palmar National Park and Predelta National Park are here.
