Upper Iguazu River, Argentina

Yacutinga Lodge and its Wildlife Refuge are located on the Upper Iguazú River, on the northeastern extreme of Argentina, only 60 km away from Iguazú Falls.

The buildings are adjusted to the natural relief of the terrain using native materials, such as stones and large logs from fallen trees. All successfully incorporated into the architectural concept of the place.

Set on 570 hectares, only 4 hectares have been used to build this unprecedent ecotourism complex in Argentina.

The main building, which includes the Reception, the main Restaurant, the Grill and the Sitting room, provides a special atmosphere because it is surrounded by a Palmetto (Euterpe edulis) stand, which is an endangered species endemic to this area.

Accommodations consist of independent lodging modules. The rooms are dispersed throughout the Forest and surround the main building from a certain distance. Each lodging module has four rooms.

The very comfortable, rustic-style rooms have private bathrooms with 24-hour hot water service. Mornings can be cold in the Forest during the winter season (June/August), therefore each room also has a woodstove, which in a way reminds us of early settlers. There are no TV’s in the rooms however all the rooms have an exclusive view to the Forest with access to native wildlife.

A guest at Yacutinga Lodge does not need to be an expert bird watcher or a Naturalist, not even a Rambo-like adventurer to enjoy the place.

The guest only needs to be someone wishing to open up his/her senses and spirit to get and understand the secrets and knowledge underlying in the Natural balance of Misiones Forest.

No more than 12 people ever participate in each tour at a time and all trips are based on respect for the natural environment, its silence and interpretation.
