(4 days/3 nights)
Three nights including the navigation through the waters of the Jungle, hikes exploring the wonderful and colorful details of this environment, sharing experiences with representatives of the Guaraní Community, who have decided to share their history and to show the Jungle to us from their cosmovision.
Yacutinga Lodge has been providing interesting ecotourism services while protecting the resources of Fauna and Flora present at our Reserve for many years, and, although our environmentalist guides offer an exceptional level of information, we always thought that we need to emphasize more on the native culture of the area. The Guaraní Culture. Therefore, years ago we decided to start a relationship with our neighbors, the Community Guaraní Kagui Pora, several years of getting to know each other , of understanding and helping each other.
The result is a very nice relation and we decided to integrate this Community more into the eco-touristic concept of Yacutinga following modern rules of responsible and sustainable tourism. With pride we present you this new itinerary, ideal for all visitors wishing to enjoy the Misiones Jungle in a genuine and comfortable way.
Iguazu Falls and Iguassu National Park – Argentina
Travelling to the world famous Iguassu Falls means an intense contact with Nature and Local Culture.
Without a doubt the Iguassu Falls are one of the highlights of any travel plan to South America.
These marvellous Falls and the National Park Iguazu have been declared World Site Heritage by UNESCO and recently they have been included as one of the World Natural Wonders of our planet.
Perhaps all these distinctions may sound pretentious but as soon as you get immersed in the vast green of this National Park and start listening to the powerful roar of the waters falling chaotically, immediately you’ll understand an unusual natural theatre is opening its stunning show.
The best option to enjoy and discover our jungle after visiting Iguassu Falls
Two hours from the world famous Iguassu 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. Listed by the World Tourism Organisation as one of the top 60 ecotourism locations worldwide, Yacutinga protects 570 hectacres of land, one of the richest and most exuberant ecosystems in South America.
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.

The highest Forest stratum, which reaches 30 meters in height, includes adult trees that form an uninterrupted roof of ramifications and dense foliage. This is the stratum that filters and administers the right amount of sunlight to the lower strata.
The smallest trees, between 3 and 10 meters high, make up to the so-called intermediate stratum. This layer is characterized by its discontinuous canopy, presence of young trees that will renew the forest, several fruit trees, bamboos and arborescent ferns.
The lowest stratum, up to 3 meters from the ground, receives little sunlight. Broad-leafed grasses, a large number of smaller ferns, and non-woody plants like begonias are abundant. This vegetal group covers and dresses the forest ground.
