Awasi Iguazú is a first class superior lodge offering exclusive, personalised guided adventures from luxury accommodation.
Close to the world’s most impressive waterfalls, Iguazú Falls, this new, luxurious Relais & Chateaux-listed lodge is operated by Awasi, a well-respected company with properties in wilderness locations in Atacama and Patagonia. Set on the densely forested banks of the river Iguazú, each of the 14 huge, beautifully crafted villas is assigned with a private guide and 4WD vehicle, allowing you to explore at your own pace, visiting the highlights of your choice, when you want to go, and staying for as long as you like.
Built on stilts to minimise environmental impact, the large wood-constructed villas are scattered over the property, each embraced by jungle foliage offering privacy but just an easy stroll from the main lodge.
Each villa has a private plunge pool, outdoor shower and spacious living area. The master villa has an enormous living room which allows plenty of space for two couples or families.
While the lodge ensures exclusivity and privacy, you have the opportunity to socialise with other guests at the bar and restaurant in the main lodge.

The whole trip was memorable! The excursion to Estancia Cristina was amazing, trekking Laguna Torre and Laguna de los Tres were awesome too. And nothing beats being able to see and hear the Perito Moreno Glacier calve!LB, London

So many highlights. We wee deeply impressed by the stunning natural beauty of Argentina. Iguazu, Humahuaca, Perrito Moreno and Mount Fitzroy in particular.JD, London
Highlight?: Wildlife! Buenos Aires! Travelling Club! being at the end of the world, border crossing in and out of Chile - good fun.....MK, Orkney
Hotel Club Tapiz and visiting the wineries in Mendoza was a real highlight. The Iguazu falls were also incredible.CAA, London
Highlights: As booked by JLA Chiloe. W trek and trekking in Fitzroy Mountains out of this world. Perito Moreno a must.KM, Stroud
The trips from Hotel Puerto Valle into the Ibera wetlands were amazing and wonderful. We also had a memorable time in Purmamarca, thoroughly enjoyed the self drive route and of course the amazing Iguazu falls.VW, Bakewell
We had a marvellous time, the welcome's we got at each airport was fantastic and everyone was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The people of Argentina are warm and friendly we felt relaxed and would recommend a visit there to anyoneMC
The mountain trip in Mendoza was spectacular. We loved Buenos Aires too.PW, Tonbridge
The weather was very kind to us and every glacier, view and the falls were stunningly beautiful. I loved being in the hotel at Bariloche sitting on the terrace overlooking the lake. I even thoroughly enjoyed travelling through the Enchanted Valley from Nequen to Bariloche because the airport had been closed. It is impossible for us to put one memorable moment as every part of Argentina that we went to was beautiful.LL, Bexley
Difficult to identify (the highlights of my self drive holiday)... I would highlight the interest of the looping drive down the mountains to the west....watching the leaves of the roadside foliage increase in size as the temperature rose was mesmerising. I would suggest that the pleasure of long drives through changing countryside is one of the unsung pleasures of such holidays as mine. But perhaps that's just lazy old me!RS, Salisbury
Highlight?: Cerro Otto, fabulous weather and the guide was just so relaxed and we had all the time in the world. It was a fabulous dayBD, Oswestry
Highlight: Andean crossing to BarilocheHL, Rickmansworth
The estancia stay was wonderful, and a really special place to spend my 30th birthday - I was thoroughly spoilt! Our trip to Quebrada de Humahuaca with Juan was also fantastic. It was also great to see the diversity of the country, and the beautiful Iguazu falls.JK, North Shields
Most Memorable Moment?: Sitting by the shore of Laguna de los Tres at the base of Mount Fitz Roy in El Chaltén ... or sitting in a wood-fired hot-tub on the first day of our honey-moon, overwrought, slightly jet lagged and very happily married!RB, London
Most memorable trip
I have wanted to visit Argentina for years. Journey Latin America helped by interpreting our desires and pulled together an excellent itinerary. Our journey will be one of the most memorable trips we have ever been on. Each accommodation was different, giving us a taste for the area, culture and the people were so friendly. What an amazing country.LT, Wimborne
Highlights?: The guides Laura, Rami and Roberto were tremendous. Highlights among many definitely include the Salta Trip to the Clouds Day, the Iguazu Falls (esp the Argentine side)and the Bariloche hiking days.JD, London
Each day gave us stunning scenery, amazing sights and the friendliness of the Argentinian people. Although one particular highlight was seeing an armadillo on the road from El Calafate..YGG, Wirral
The trip was divided into a series of mini holidays and each was memorable in its own way. Obviously the Iguazu Falls were spectacular but we derived much pleasure from every experience we had.MK, Southampton
We loved all of it, we really enjoyed the scenery of Humahuaca Gorge and the drive to Cafayate. Iguazu falls are incredible also and a definite highlight....We found our whole holiday experience excellent. It was nice to be able to see so much in 2 weeks whilst still feeling relaxed as we were looked after so well by all our guides. The personal itinerary and help we received made a huge difference to us and we were impressed by the standard of all our hotels. The only problem was that we wished we had longer so we could of seen more.HB, Abingdon
Highlights?: View from top of chairlift in Bariloche. Iguazu falls. Penguins in Ushuaia.LS, West Wickham
We both thought that the experience and power of the Iguazu Falls when we were alone in the grounds on our own (early in the morning before the crowds arrived) was an experience of a lifetime. We've never seen an almost circular rainbow caused by the river's spray before.AP, London
Everything met with our expectations (and beyond) but If there was a real highlight it was probably the visit to Estancia ChristinaRJ, Arundel
Most Memorable Moment?: Iguazu falls - the whole trip was incredible! Seeing the falls by full moon was one of the most amazing things i have ever seen!JW, Aylesbury
Overall, a fantastic trip. Will recommend Argentina and Journey Latin America to any friends looking to travel to this area. Thank you very much for helping us to create such a smooth running and enjoyable trip for us!KB, Chelmsford
Excellent trip during which we felt we saw some of the real Argentina. Delightful and helpful people abounded who had an enviable pride in their country. Excellent service from JLA (particularly Lina) and local representatives in Argentina added to our enjoyment.ML, Cheltenham
An excellent holiday to a fantastically varied country inhabited by charming people. An absolute must.CF, Sutton
It was all highlights but Iguassu falls from Argentina and Brazil were really amazing. We were fortunate to be there when the water volume and power of the falls were especially high (which outweighed the occasional heavy rain by far).MW, Oldham
Not easy to pick out a highlight. It was a very varied trip as we had requested. The natural scenery around Salta, Iguazu, the Lakes and all over Patagonia was amazing, helped by some very favourable weather. The top hotels - Patagonia Camp, Patios de Cafayate, Arakur were great; some of the lesser hotels surpassed their descriptions - Molinos, la Yegua Loca, Anslemo;...The Andean Crossing was fabulous: fantastic scenery which we saw in perfect conditions, with very easy transfers and helpful guides.CB, Winchester
Perito Merino and Iguazú Falls were undoubtedly the high points - unforgettable experiences.TW, Prenton
