La Cantera Iguazu is a great value option that has the benefit of a beautiful location in the midst of lush jungle scenery. Only a 15 minute drive from the Falls, it is a fraction of the cost of the two hotels located within the national parks and even neighbouring luxury options such as Loi Suites but has all the benefit of the same natural surroundings. There is a good size pool with wicker loungers and the property also arranges daily jungle walks, guided bicycle tours or car rental, if you wish. The property was built to have a minimal impact on the surrounding forest
The restaurant serves pretty good international fare with a few local specials but you may wish to venture out to other local options as well during your stay, using the hotel’s own courtesy shuttle bus several times daily into Puerto Iguazu. The decor is sympathetic to the surrounding jungle, with clever use of natural materials and subtle jungle touches throughout. The superior category rooms have a large private balcony with jungle views, jacuzzi tub and are closer to the main hotel area. Note that rooms are set over two floors with no lift between them in attractive wooden cabanas. A well located, simpler option that offers good value in a generally expensive location.
