La Lorenza is a small private reserve just 50 minutes away from the city of Iguazu in the northeastern tip of Argentina. Its goal is to conserve a portion of the Atlantic Forest and the rich diversity contained within it, with tourism as an ally. Situated on the Paraná River, across from Paraguay, the property is surrounded by rainforest and small farms where local families live off the land. The reserve boasts a wooden house and a deck, which provide a privileged spot to relax after each excursion.

NAVIGATION ON THE PARANÁ RIVER TO THE YASY CASCADE + HEAVY APPETIZER
Upon arrival at La Lorenza a motor boat will be waiting for us to navigate up the Paraná River. After 15 minutes we will reach the Yasy cascade, a local hidden gem. In the intimacy of this breathtaking natural landscape, you can go for a swim and maybe even allow the waterfall to give you a massage. Bathing here is safe and enjoyable as there are no aggressive animals in its waters. On the way back, we will free float briefly down the Paraná River as we enjoy its whirlpools and calm waters. With a view of Paraguay on our private deck, by the bank of the Paraná River, a delicious appetizer and some drinks will be offered. This is a good time to share endless local stories and curiosities.

What Our Travelers Says

I could not improve a thing!!!
"The tour was amazing! We had toured the Brazilian side of the falls the day before on our own. Getting explanation from Yvette about both sides helped us understand more about the falls and the difference between the two areas. Yvette was very informative and her English was excellent. She knew when to give the group extra time and when to hurry us along with ease. She had us to every spot when we needed to be there. Yvette answered all of our questions and was helpful to others, even people not on our tour. The tour was fantastic! I highly recommend seeing both sides.

I can confidently say that this tour…
"I can confidently say that this tour was one of the best experiences of my life. From start to finish, the tour was nothing short of exceptional, and our guide, Mariella, was an absolute gem. Mariella's knowledge of the area and the falls was extensive and her enthusiasm infectious. She kept us entertained and informed throughout the day, making sure to stop at all the best viewpoints and sharing interesting anecdotes along the way. The falls themselves were breathtaking, and Mariella's guidance really made the experience all the more special. What really impressed me, however, was Mariella's quick thinking and care when one of our fellow visitors took a fall. She immediately sprang into action, ensuring the individual was taken to the emergency room and receiving the best care possible. Her professionalism and concern for our well-being was truly admirable, and it made the tour feel even more like a family outing than just a group of strangers. Overall, I cannot recommend iguazufalls.com and Mariella enough. The tour was exceptional, and the experience of the falls themselves was unforgettable. Mariella's care and attention to detail really made the day, and I would give this tour a perfect 10/10 rating.

Customized itinerary; efficient use of time
"We had a week in Buenos Aires and wanted to visit Iguazu, but wanted to see the falls from both countries. All we could find on standardized tours were long 1-day or 3-day options. Riptio Tourismo put together a comprehensive two-day trip that handled everything from transportation to and from our Air BnB, airfare, hotel, and tour guides. A great experience visiting a true world wonder. Highly recommend seeing the falls from both Argentina and Brazil and using this tour company!

Trip to Buenos Aires & Iguazu Falls
"My wife and I booked a cruise from Ushuaia to Santiago. We wanted to tour Buenos Aires and Iguazu Falls but didn't know how to arrange this trip. We contacted Ripio Truismo for help planning this trip and were glad we did. Lucia Rubio helped us through some iterations to plan our trip. All of our transfers were on time with great drivers. The first day in Buenos Area we did a 3 hour walking tour. The 2nd day we did a 4 hour of the city including a wine tasting. In the evening we were treated to a wine and Tango show at La Ventana that was a highlight of our time in Buenos Aires. The next day we flew to Puerto Iguazu, Argentina and stayed at the Panoramic Grand Hotel which is located on a bluff above the Iguazu River - great location. The next day we had a 1/2 day tour of Iguazu Falls from the Brazilian side and then a tour of the Itiapu Dam between Brazil and Paraguay. This is the 2nd largest dam in the world. The next day we had a tour of the Argentinian side of the Falls and then flew back to Buenos Aires to catch our flight to Ushuaia the next morning. Our trip went like clockwork with great tour leaders and drivers. If you want to plan a trip the Buenos Aires, I would recommend using Ripio Truismo.

Fabulous Iguazu Falls tour
"From the time we got to the airport in Buenos Aries to the time we were dropped off at the cruise ship terminal everything was great. All details were taken care of and everyone was on time for tours and transfers. The Iguazu Falls tours and hotel was amazing. Thank you so much for an amazing trip.
