Therefore, my most honest recommendation is to book our Yacutinga Experience (2 nights) program. In case you like a memorable soft adventure experience and nature is a must for you I believe our Yacutinga Nature and Guarani Culture (3 nights) will be suitable as a remarkable option. Do not miss the opportunity of a longer stay with us if you have special interest in birds, in butterflies and medicinal plants, or simply seeking an anti-stress option, consider our 4 night packages.

  • We take care of your transfer from the town of Puerto Iguazu (Argentina). All our programs include transportation from Puerto Iguazu to Yacutinga, and return. Guests must be at the meeting point at 2 PM. The transfer departs from the meeting point towards Yacutinga Lodge at 2.30PM. We do not accept guests travelling with their own vehicle to the Lodge for several reasons, but perhaps the most important is the difficulty in transiting these clay and slippery roads in case of rain. We do not want anybody to encounter difficulties while trying to arrive independently to the Lodge, or worse, trying to leave the Lodge with their own vehicle. We have been living many years in the jungle and know its operational complexities; this is why we prefer to transfer you in our own vehicles and with the knowledge of the necessary routes. In case that for unrelated reasons you are unable to arrive on time to our meeting point (14.00 hrs.), you have to arrive in a private transfer.
