La Lorenza Iguazu: Wildlife and Nature
La Lorenza is a rainforest reserve located only 40 km away from Iguazú in Misiones (around 45 min by car). They focus on the preservation of the Atlantic rain forest of north-eastern Argentina and all their activities aim to achieve this goal. It’s a family house in the middle of the jungle, and in most of the cases, the people that host the visitors are the owners.
Discover La Lorenza
La Lorenza offers a variety of activities for tourists to enjoy the wildlife and flora of the jungle. They have different types of excursions, either in the morning or the afternoon, according with the visitors preferences. Whether they want to hike along the paths surrounded by vegetation, take photographs of the rainforest and its wildlife, going kayaking along the river Parana or look at different types of wild birds, like the golden-crested woodpecker, the robust woodpecker, band-tailed manakins, while walking through the jungle. One of the attractions to visit in La Lorenza is the Yasy Waterfall, the local gem. You’ll enter the Parana River by boat and once you arrive there, you can enjoy a swim in its waters or even a massage in the waters of the waterfall. It is the ideal place to enjoy a snack while watching these beautiful landscapes.
