Yacutinga Origins | 3 nights

Yacutinga Origins: A unique and innovative proposal.

The northeast corner of the Misiones Province still keeps surprises of an unknown Argentina. Yacutinga added a surprising and unexpected journey to discover the farming life style of Andresito Colony to the exuberant environmental Jungle interpretation

Pioneers of the late twentieth century came to the area with the hope of a new opportunity of living. They conquered the untamed Jungle with hard work, hope and sacrifice.

The stories about jaguars and giant snakes, life with jungle as a neighbour, the fires, the Yerba Mate and the local culture are still nowadays a strict reflection of the tales about Horacio Quiroga.

4 days / 3 nights dedicated to understand this peculiar reality of our country comfortably accommodated in Yacutinga Lodge.

  • All meals, accommodation, transfers and activities included.
  • The set of planned activities provide the opportunity to understand the Interior Atlantic rainforest from an environmental and social side.
  • Eco tours: Kayaking trough the waters of the jungle and hiking into the Rainforest; guided by ecologists within the exclusive Yacutinga Private Reserve.

The visit to the neighbouring Guarani Community Kagui Pora 2 close to Yacutinga Lodge . The idea during this experience is to understand the social reality our brothers Guarani are undergoing. While developing this kind of low impact ecotourism activity we try to help them in various ways. It is an open-eye experience for any visitor.

The Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguariensis) plantation. The South American Green tea is the main agricultural product and economic stilt of the neighbouring Andresito Colony. Pioneers of the last Century transformed this wild bush in a crop. Today the Yerba Mate is a very popular infusion for Argentinians, Uruguayans and south Brazilian people.

Without the use of medicinal native plants from the Atlantic Forest, the colonization would not be possible, and because of that we add to this experience the possibility to learn how locals use these native plants for homeopathic medicine; using the traditional mate infusion as a method to intake the homeopathic benefits that some of the plants of the jungle kindly give us. Its tradition is explained given that without doubt it has been the rural homeopathy the one that permitted the settling of the pioneer families in this rural environment. This tradition is still going and shining in this unknown part of Argentina.

This is a journey through the living history of our Country. Here past and future meet to create a curious present.

This is an unprecedented and extremely picturesque jungle experience.

“Hideaway in the Forest!”

The accommodations were excellent. The individual ‘cottages’ are uniquely artistic with a screened porch. All of the expected amenities are available and one could easily forget they are in a forest until they look out the window. I traveled to Yacutinga with OAT (Overland Adventure Trips).

“Amazing place and awesome food”

We spent three nights in the suite after visiting the Iguazú falls and we highly recommend this experience to every nature lover. The activities like walks or kayak were early in the morning. Durning our excursions we saw monkeys, lizards and many kind of birds. Fortunately not much mosquitos at all!
In the afternoon we had time to rest enjoying the pool, the hammocks in the garden, the huge room and the amazing sound of the forest.

“Loved it here”

Really nice place where you have the feeling you are in the middle of nowhere (and you actually are). The little houses in which you sleep are good and has everything you need. Warm water, good beds and enough space. The food is really good, super delicious!

“Beautiful place and awesome food!”

Yacutinga is a private lodge in the Misiones rain forest. They have a central house with restaurante and living room area where you have breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food is unbelievable, home made and very tasty. Then there are different small houses, very simple style

A phenomenal environmentally friendly lodge. Gourmet food too! Excellent guides, unique trails and an opportunity to be present in the rainforest. Bring bug spray, wear long pants and long sleeves. Be prepared to be dazzled!!

“Paradise in the jungle”

Yacutinga Lodge is a small example of paradise in the jungle. The lodge itself is based on a number of small cottages set in the jungle with a central complex with dining room, lounge and bar &c. The accommodation is basic but clean and comfortable

“Ecological Paradise”

I was here for only 2 days and nights, but this place was amazing. The Lodge is an ecological masterpiece, peacefully nestled within the rain forest. The staff was by far, the most friendly we met during our 28-day tour of South America. Wonderful people

“Jungle Deluxe”

The Yacutinga Lodge sets the tone with the check-in area and lobby with natural wood chairs, desk, stairs and more. Steps away are the well-maintained pool and beautiful party / bar / outdoor kitchen areas. The individual lodges are clean and well protected from marauding mosquitoes.


“A Fun Side Trip”

Staff and guide were great. Accommodations we’re surprisingly good in an out of the way place. Loved the food and the fact that the place was built out of natural products. I was part of a tour heading to Iguazú Falls
