“The Jungle Wild Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

Yacutinga Lodge was the next stop after experiencing Iguazu Falls, and it did not disappoint. Friendly staff dedicated to preserving the jungle while providing excellent adventures for their guests. Excellent meals, as well.

I cannot think about another paradisiac place to go in Argentina, besides Bariloche. Puerto Iguazú is just amazingly beaurtiful, and Yacutinga is the perfect place to be logged in the nature. cause you dont feel the difference of being in the nature, and being in the hotel. its a full sensitive experience. the monkeys around all the time, the sound of peace at night, the food, the spa. its was so nice to get what we were expecting and more.

I recommend this place thousand times.

Yacutinga Lodge is two hours’ drive in muddy and ruff road away from Portal de Iguazu (Iguazu Falls) in Argentina; using the lodge truck car, fitted with metallic passenger seats covered with cushions.

If you are Visiting this lodge, you have to keep in mind that you are back to the nature with basic amenities and limited services. No TV, no landlines, no mobile network connection and only dim lights are within the Resort. Staying in this Lodge is not recommended for people with limited mobility.

The lodge provides Wi-Fi access only at the rate of 30 Peso and most of the times it is either weak or disconnected from the main station; which I had during my last stay for full day.

The lodge provides full board package for two, three or four nights including different activities, such as: jungle walk, kayaking, birds watching, Flora & Fiona and visiting native trips and transfers from Iguazu Falls Town. The activities are divided in two timings morning and afternoon.
The rooms are scattered within the jungle with foot path leading to each room and every room got set out (terrace) covered by wired net to protect from the insects and flies.

The lobby, fire place and the bar of the lodge are superb; where the guests spend most of the time.

Room Tip: The rooms are scattered within the jungle with foot path leading to each room and every room got set...

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.
