JUNGLE REST & COMFORT IN IGUAZÚ

Calm and relaxation in the middle of the rainforest, to fully enjoy the visit to the Iguazú Falls.


La Cantera Jungle Lodge by DON is located In the middle of the Iryapú jungle, in full contact with nature.

Upon check-in, the staff already educates guests about the care and respect for nature. Our passage through the rainforest may be temporary, but the ecosystem should remain intact.

For this reason the complex was carefully constructed while preserving the environment; considering in its 3 hectares the permanence of 400 year old trees and other species in danger of extinction. In this way, the architectural project included certain innovative contributions, such as the construction of balconies around trees – to avoid cutting them down – and the reduction of the impact on natural resources.

Perhaps it´s this immersion in nature that in itself predisposes us to tranquility and to disconnect completely; although the environment of La Cantera definitely helps. From the entrance you can see everything connected by wooden walkways that lead to the different rooms and common spaces – such as the swimming pool with solarium or the relax area. All with a lush green and humid vegetation as constant background that allows you to breathe the purest air.

The property has five room categories; modern, sober and very luminous. All are equipped with LCD TV, balcony or deck overlooking the jungle, comfortable beds, air conditioning and minibar.

The in-house restaurant has been recently remodeled. So recently, there are no photos yet! Even so, “El Boyero” promises unique aromas, colors, textures and flavors. Here, a gourmet breakfast is served every morning, and then, in the afternoon you can taste sweet pastries specialties. In the evening, an exclusive menu of drinks and signature dishes, ideal for recovering energy after venturing into the jungle or having visited the Falls.

In addition to the best personalized service, with a warm and friendly staff, La Cantera includes three activities with its rate. On the one hand, an interpretive guided walk to explore the rainforest, learn about the region’s characteristics and its environment, and learn about the flora, fauna and culture of the place.

On the other hand, a walk to a village inhabited by Guarani people, joined by a native guide. You will learn about the Guaraní culture, its routines and uses of medicinal plants, hunting customs and even walking along paths that they themselves have traced.

The third activity is a jungle bike ride, joined also by a guide that will lead the way crossing the lush vegetation of this particular environment.

All the activities are easy, suitable for the whole family, between one and one and a half hours long and can be done in the morning or in the afternoon.

For Iguazú visitors, there is no better option than staying in a natural environment, without disregarding the comfort and hospitality that La Cantera Jungle Lodge offers daily.
