It's hard to decide where to start with praise of La Posada de la Laguna. Pleasant, friendly (if a bit shy) staff. Amazing view of, and access to, the wetlands. Our guide, Roque, was informative and patient, and seemed just as excited as we were to see all the landscape and animals...although he had probably seen it all a million times before. The guest rooms are clean and comfortable. Waking up to incredible bird sounds each morning was an extra bonus. The food was great and they took care of my husband's and my vegetarianism. The main house/dining room was comfortable and provided a great view of the iguanas and wild guinea pigs by the swimming pool.
Two caveats: 1) It's not easy to get here, but that makes it that much more special! We took a car from Iguazu Falls (6+ hours, many of them very bumpy) on the way in, and then a car to Mercedes on the way out (less bumpy, the road was in the process of going from dirt to pavement)...and then an overnight bus from Mercedes to Buenos Aires (not as "easy" as some would have you believe). 2) I wish we had taken one morning or one afternoon just to sit/nap/read at the Posada. We went on excursions each morning and afternoon, and they were all great. In retrospect, I would have liked a few hours of doing "nothing."
