Yacutinga Origins

A wonderful 3-night tour to enjoy the Atlantic Rainforest in the area of Iguazu Falls

A unique and innovative proposal!  The extreme Northeast of the Province of Misiones still holds surprises from an unknown Argentina. To the environmental interpretation of this lush Jungle, we add an unexpected and astonishing journey to discover the life of Colonia Andresito.

Settlers from the late 20th century arrived in the area with hopes for a new opportunity in life. They conquered this untamed Jungle through hard work, hope, and sacrifice. Stories about the Jaguar and gigantic snakes, life at the edge of the Jungle, campfires, Yerba Mate, and the local culture still reflect strictly the tales of Horacio Quiroga.



Arrival to Yacutinga Lodge

Pick up from your hotel in Puerto Iguazu or Foz do Iguaçu, or airport. And transfer to the meeting point for your transfer to Yacutinga Rainforest Lodge. During the journey, we will notice the subsistence agricultural and livestock system that predominates in the Northeast of Misiones Province.

The landscape is extremely picturesque, characterized by deep greenery, reddish and clayey roads, Settlers, and their Yerba Mate farms. By mid-afternoon, we arrive at the South entrance of the Yacutinga Private Reserve, nestled in the heart of the Paranaense Jungle.

Arrival at the Lodge, reception, room assignment. Presentation of the activities that will take place during the stay and introductory explanation about the environmental issues of the Misiones Jungle and the actions we are taking to achieve its conservation.

Dinner. Accommodation.

After breakfast, we will explore the origins!
The set of scheduled activities provides the opportunity to understand the Misiones Jungle from both Environmental and Social perspectives. Eco-tours through the waters and trails of the deep Jungle are included, guided by Ecologists within the exclusive Yacutinga Private Reserve.


Yacutinga Lodge

Today, we will enjoy a tour through a Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguariensis) plantation, the main agricultural product of Colonia Andresito, allows us to understand the use that humans have made of this emblematic species of the Misiones Jungle by domesticating it and transforming it into a cultural ritual.

The visit to the Guarani Community neighboring Yacutinga Lodge. The idea during these hours of participation with the Kagui Pora 2 indigenous community is to understand the social reality experienced by our Guarani brothers and sisters and to try to help them in various ways through the development of this low-impact eco-tourism activity.

Without the medicinal use of native plants from the Misiones Jungle, the process of colonization would not have been possible. Therefore, we incorporate the use of our traditional mate around the campfire as a way of administering the homeopathic benefits that some of the generously provided plants of the Jungle offer us. Its tradition is explained, which undoubtedly allowed the settlement of pioneer families in these rugged environments. This tradition remains alive and in all its splendor in this unknown area of Argentina.

Crisis managers who go the extra mile.

"Every derail was attended to promptly and cheerfully. We had an in-flight emergency needing a last minute change and Lucia and Ramiro were all over it. They turned what could have been a travel disaster due to airlines cancellations into a wonderful two day experience at Iguazu Falls. They are great! Thank you!

Iguazu Falls - last minute booking

"We had a last minute decision going to the Iguazu Falls enroute a visit to Rio. We flew from Canada and arrived São Paulo on 23rd Feb morning, and Foz do Iguazu at night time. During the time we were at São Paulo airport, we looked for Iguazu Falls tours the next day, coz we would leave for Rio on 25th Feb. What a blessing I found this website. Walter promptly arranged the tour for me at almost the closing of business hours. He followed up assuring the hotel pick up at 9am the next morning on 24th Feb. Joao was one of the best tour guides I had. With his guide, we saw the best parts of the Falls from both sides of Argentina and Brazil. While hiking the Argentina side trail, we saw monkeys, a poisonous snake, birds, butterflies catfish, lizards and many more. Joao explained to us how some of the endangered species were protected. Very interesting. Joao assisted us to go through customs. It was very smooth going from Brazil to Argentina and coming back. We were so much into taking photos we forgot about our lunch. We felt very sorry for Joao but he just kept going to all the best points so we could take our best pictures. Our apologies. When the trip was finished, Walter checked with us to make sure we were safely back to our hotel. I am very thankful to Walter and his team. Can't believe Mother Nature creating such a magnificent landscape, and we could see it without hassle last minute. Such a wonderful time! I would highly recommend Walter to everyone. Thanks again, Walter and Joao.

We were picked up from our hotel on…

"We were picked up from our hotel on time and taken to Buenos Aires airport and everything went smoothly. Our driver and tour guide for the day Alex was waiting for us and took us to start our adventure. The iguaza Falls exceed everyones expectations they are wonderous. Alex took us on the upper trail first,then the boat ride of a life time to go into the falls we got soaked and were so 😊happy and you can buy a video after for $15us Alex then took on lower trail which i personally thought were the best. All in all Alex's trip was fantastic knew his stuff and explained everything we wanted to know.. Brilliant trip would recommend to everyone.

Best Service for Seeing Iguazu Falls

"Can't imagine a better, more seamless trip experience to Iguazu Falls. Communication with Lucia through the entire process was excellent, and each and every aspect of the adventure was better than we could have imagined. Everything was perfectly aligned and delivered without a hitch. We were a bit nervous about our driver getting us to the airport on time from the cruise port. We were originally scheduled to disembark at 7am, but we actually got off at 6:15 and right there was our driver!! And every other transport was equally as excellent. We loved our private Falls guide, Elisangela, who went the distance to ensure we had a truly wonderful experience. We are so so glad we decided to do both sides, and to spend the night in Iguazu. The Falls are beyond comprehension, and no pictures do them justice. Loved trekking around the area where every bend brought new amazing vistas and sounds. Yes, Devil's Throat is closed and will be for awhile, but that in no way detracted from our experience. Stayed at the Grand Panorama Hotel. Very lovely place only 3-minute walk from the main area with shops, restaurants, etc. Very convenient for getting out and about. We also appreciated the options for additional things to do in the area. We selected the Argentinian Dining Experience and the Bird Park in Brazil. The dining experience is something not to be missed! We had so much fun with the other guests and the two instructors/chefs/mixologists. Best filet mignon ever eaten, and that's saying a lot because we are Michelin star foodies! It was a memorable evening that we will be talking about for a long time to come!! And we enjoyed our time seeing some of the many birds of South America. Great conservation facility where the birds are well-taken care of and safe. Everything about our trip was top-notch! Couldn't recommend a better group of people to work with.
