4 days and 3 nights dedicated to discover the northeast jungle area of Argentina. It is a pristine place where the past melts with the present. 60 miles east from the famous Iguassu Falls at the border between Brazil and Argentina extends a large portion of subtropical rainforest protected by environmental laws.
This interesting journey is surprising for the adventurous traveller. Away from massive tourism extend beautiful landscapes characterized by rich biodiversity, lush green jungle vegetation in contrast with its red soil.
Powerful rivers and bucolic streams irrigate the forest. Clear blue sky. The curious living history of the Guarani native people, and their relation with european pioneers.
At night, the shout of an owl, the fantastic Milky Way, and the magic of the Jungle by a fireplace at the comfort of Yacutinga Lodge accommodations.
The very best option to enjoy and discover the Interior Atlantic Rainforest after visiting the Iguazu Falls.
Two hours from the world famous Iguazu Falls, Yacutinga Lodge and it’s wild life refuge, is located deep in the pristine part of the Misiones jungle, almost entirely surrounded by the upper Iquazu river, – the same river that curves through the Nataional Parks of Argentina and Brazil, and continues to flow southward to form a gigantic horseshoe, that becomes the majestic waterfalls.
This green forest by day and copper forest at sunset, with its water and densely contrasting Misiones red soil, reveals the excellent state of conservation of the reserve, that has hardly felt the impact of agriculture and livestock expansion; mainly due to the use of high standards in sustainable tourism.
Its deep forests of native trees, lianas, orchids, and impressive sounds of nature, is the home of several species of plants and animals, such as the Palmeto Palms and Rosewoods. Also conserved, a third of the country’s bird population, that coexist in perfect harmony with colorful toucans and more than 570 species of butterflies. (Among them, one new subspecie to science).
