“Great stay in a beautiful eco lodge in the heart of the jungle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

We spent 2 nights in the beautiful Yacutinga Lodge in August. We flew in from Buenos Aires. We especially appreciated the peacefulness of the jungle and knowledgable guides after the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires. The lodge is very comfortable with hot showers, simple but functional rooms, beautiful grounds, a nice pool to cool off in (although the weather was cold in August when we arrived) and great food. The activities were fun. They included, jungle walks by day and evening, kayaking and some sort of service option, we were able to help rescue orchids. We saw Toucans, including the rare Banana Toucan, a cousin of the Quetzal, lots of other birds and even a family of monkeys. On some of our walks we were joined by the local Chief of the Guarani tribe that lives nearby. It was a great experience.

Room Tip: The Lodge is not cheap and is at least 2.5 hours away from the Falls but was a wonderful experience.

Still love the place!!!
I recomend Yacutinga Lodge for all adventure people that love nature and love to be "relax" for a wile.
If you need to "decompress" your self, Yacutinga Lodge is the place because is no TV, radio,or any outside news.
The service, rooms, native food,hiking in the jungle, bird watching ,lots of fauna to see.
I fall in love with the pool and the people who create this awesome place.
I highly recomend this lodge

If you'd like to get the inside track on all things jungle and rainforest, then book yourself in now. Warning however, although the rooms are perfectly apt for their location, if you are afraid of small insects and odd noises at night, this place might not be right for you.

Yacutinga is well located to offer its guests an informative and adventurous holiday. The food is plentiful and tastes great (and much needed after a busy day trekking). The guides are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Really recommend staying for 3 nights to really get the most of your stay.

Our tour group stayed for 3 nights recently at this fabulous place - wonderful food, atmospheric accommodation and environment and great walks through the jungle and 'floating' down the Iguazu river in our canoes with our well informed and fun rangers. Definitely take a torch, long trousers and shirts to cover up, binoculars and your mossie plug in and deet. We were lucky with our wildlife walk - chimps, coati, birds, butterflies, snakes, spiders, lovely plants and trees and some of us even saw a black puma stroll across the path a few feet in front of us! Amazing! A must do after the falls.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great but in the forest along dark paths so you do need a torch and can be a bit c...

this is an amazing place with a qualified staff taking care of everything - service level is really high and they are so nice. The lodge is a nice place that fits in with surroundings, we had great excursions with Nestor, a very good guide good english and a local indian as well. the rooms are great with homemade soap, shampoo etc. it was nice the little terrace. electricity comes and goes which is perfect fro a place like this. the pool area is small and nice and fits in with the area with a fallen tree trunk passing the pool. the orquid wall makes hummingbirds and a huge selection of butterflies pass the pool area frequently. the food is really great and better than expected and huge portions! the only downside is that there isn't more animal wildlife but hopefully the continued work of yacutinga will help. an amazing place!

If you are going to the falls, this is a very good side trip. You will gain an appreciation for the jungle environment and what human intervention has done to diminish this valuable resource. This is a wonderful learning and discovery opportunity and I recommend it. The food is good and fresh and the accomodations are nice as well. Add to the mix some good guides and you will likely enjoy this as much as we did.
