A pristine primary rainforest, Yacutinga offers guests a fantastic opportunity to explore the surrounding jungle on walking and river safaris with expert naturalist guides.

A reserve, biological station and lodge are set amongst over 1,000 square kilometres of the Misiones. The area is home to countless species of birds, mammals and plants, all occupying unique niches in the complex layered ecosystem, reaching from the dark forest floor to the soaring canopy above. In between the layers, colourful birds such as toucans, black-fronted piping guans, trogons and woodpeckers, fly past. The reserve also protects several endangered species such as the jaguar, tapir and ocelot, although these elusive creatures are difficult to spot and visitors should consider themselves quite lucky if a sighting is made!

Located in the northeastern corner of the Misiones region, Yacutinga is located two hours’ drive west of Iguazu Falls, followed by a short journey along the Iguazu River.
