Yacutinga is one of a kind. It is all about the environment. A unique lodge with big rooms, great guides and delicous food. The prefect place to reconnect with nature and get away from the rat race. The flora and fauna of the rainforest are all around you. A fun lodge.

I stayed in this eco-lodge during my last OAT trip to the region. This was our "jungle" leg of the trip. This was a beautiful, rustic and quiet area surrounded by jungle and the sounds of the jungle. The room was large with a fan and lots of windows. The shower and toilet areas were separate rooms. Everything was very... More

We very much enjoyed the simple jungle ambience of the lodge, the informative guides and hikes, and the beautiful, peaceful kayak trip on the SF and Iguazu rivers. It rained both nights we were there and some of both days, but that only made our shoes and pants a little muddier. We liked the idea of leaving a small footprint... More

Been there over three days which was nice, but we wished that we'd even more days to spent at Yacutinca. It was a truly great experience to discover some of the jungle-mood and key features. Simply perfect and impressive!

We did the Yacutinga experience in februari and it was amazing. We loved the all natural design of the cabins and lobby. There is no airco in the cabins, but we did not miss it. The jungle creates a nice cool breeze. Its a serene beautiful place. They offer you guides through the jungle and an amazing kajak trip on... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Yacutinga in February 2014. We are experienced travelers and love to stay at eco-resorts. We had read the reviews and knew to expect a long ride to the lodge on rough dirt roads, so that was fine with us. When we arrived, we were greeted with cheese bread and lemon water in... More

We had a three night stay in a cabin called Toucan #4. Other reviewers are correct in emphasizing the rustic 'nature" (pardon the pun!) of the place. Interior lighting is dim; Heat is oppressive (even for those of us from South Carolina); There ARE many bugs that can be a nuisance (40% DEET works well!); Afternoon rains can be torrential... More

We are staying now in the Yacutinga Lodge. Most of the visible artwork and support beams are wood found in the forest jungle after trees fall or of seeds and stones in nature. Without making a comment on the resort, we can tell you what we are experiencing now. At 10 pm at night sweat is dripping off my forehead,... More

Hi Linda, Thanks for your comment, What you say is true about the heat, temperatures in the summer months are very high in this area! also the humidity, its normal.
