The setting of the lodge is truly beautiful and the accomodations and main lodge building were much, much higher quality than I ever could have expected. The guides (especially our main guide Ricardo) were extremely knowledgeable about the environs and extremely friendly. The kayak trip down the stream and down the Iguacu river were wonderful. I saw monkeys, pig-rats and coati. At the put-out for the kayak trip there is a grove of tangerine trees with what has to be the best tangerines on the planet. I was taken aback by the quality of food they served at the lodge. The quality of the food seemed good but it was the preparation was wonderful. The only minor annoyance with the place was the fact that heat is provided by wood-burning stoves and their is a strong smell of wood smoke in the rooms at night for that reason. That said, we were there in the winter (July) and it wasn't cold at all. We didn't even need the heat. Maybe ask them not to heat your room if you don't want the wood smoke smell. Bottom line: if you care about the environment at all, you will be glad to have supported a wonderful project like this.
