Hotel in Iguazu: La Aldea de Selva, customer review

Tim and Carla spent their honeymoon in Argentina and Chile mixing Buenos Aires luxury with trekking the W Circuit of Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia. They’ve been kind enough to share some of their experiences on the Swoop blog. This second post is about a lodge and spa hotel they used on the Argentinian side of the Iguazu Falls called La Aldea de Selva.


What a great place for some peace and relaxation after the buzz and bustle of Buenos Aires. Although most people, like us, are here for a very short stay to see the falls, we thoroughly enjoyed some time to relax by the pool in 30o C sunshine, and laze and read in our own private hammock. The rooms are big and private with a unique natural feel, though I could have done with a couple more pillows! The food was reasonable at the hotel but we would recommend taking a cab into town to La Rueda to try some Surubi (common fish from he nearby Parana River). Deliciously cooked and really tasty. All in all a short but very sweet visit up north.
