Is it worth staying in a lodge in Iguazu Falls area?

Surely you already know that Puerto Iguazu and Foz do Iguaçu are the base cities for visiting the incredible Iguazu Falls, and perhaps you have also read that the Yriapu jungle offers some wilderness hotels that will give you more contact with nature. Now, visiting Iguazu can be done within 2 or 3 days. Usually, two nights are sufficient, although some opt to stay for one night, which is also valid since visiting the Brazilian side takes half a day, and the Argentine side almost a full day. But what else does the area offer? What other attractions are there besides Iguazu Falls that allow us to extend our stay? Well, there are some attractions in themselves, such as Mocona Falls or the Yabotí Biosphere Reserve, but also activities associated with these sites, such as birdwatching, kayaking in the rivers, wildlife and flora interpretation, contact with local indigenous villages, or even simply relaxation and rest in contact with nature.


Is it a good idea to add nights of accommodation at a jungle lodge?

Combining your visit to the Iguazu Falls with a jungle lodge is a splendid idea for several reasons. Primarily, it immerses you entirely in the natural beauty and tranquility of the jungle, offering a more intimate and close-to-nature experience. Furthermore, jungle lodges typically provide a range of outdoor activities like hiking, birdwatching, kayaking, and guided tours, allowing you to explore and encounter the indigenous flora and fauna of the region in a unique and thrilling manner. Moreover, these accommodations often offer a serene and peaceful atmosphere, enabling you to disconnect from the everyday stresses and rejuvenate amidst the spectacular natural surroundings. In essence, combining your visit to the Iguazu Falls with a jungle lodge offers a comprehensive and enriching experience that allows you to deeply connect with nature and fully enjoy your adventure in this unique region.

How many nights should I book at a lodge in the rainforest?

Well, that depends on several factors, or at least a few. One is undoubtedly your own time. If you have the time, add three nights to engage in activities and rest. In some places closer to Iguazu, such as Yacutinga Lodge, San Sebastian de la Selva Lodge, and even Puerto Bemberg, two nights are also feasible since they are close to the Iguazu Falls area. But if you opt for lodges closer to the Yabotí Jungle and Macuco Falls, the suggested minimum is three nights, and even four if you thoroughly enjoy the natural environment.


What are the recommended lodges in the area?

Well, I invite you to read my article about lodges available in the province of Misiones, which can be combined with your visit to Iguazu. Some of them are Yacutinga Lodge, San Sebastian de la Selva, Posada Puerto Bemberg, La Mision Lodge, Pure Mocona Lodge, El Soberbio Lodge, and Surucua.
