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.
