The Meliá Iguazú Hotel is set within the jungle of the Iguazu National Park, perfectly located for exploration of the park and is walking distance from the spectacular Argentine side of the Iguazú Falls. Make your way along the extensive wildlife trails criss-crossing the river and spotting birdlife, butterflies, caiman crocodiles and capybara as you go. Walk along the Upper and Lower Circuits for contrasting views of the falls and do not miss the panoramic platform above the mist of the roaring Devils Throat Gorge.
Whilst the three-storey building is quite unattractive this is dramatically compensated as it is the best located of any hotel in the area and no other can match such views. With 181 rooms with either falls (in the distance!) or jungle views each comes with a private balcony, the hotel has a good range of facilities including a spa, outdoor swimming pool and sun deck.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Iguazú Falls into a greater Brazil & Latin America holiday. Take a look at Classic Argentina as an example of a bespoke itinerary that we can create for you.
