In January 2018 I was the first journalist to visit the brand new adventure lodge, Awasi Iguazu, in the very north of Argentina – just 20 minutes from the widest waterfall on the planet. It’s a very special place indeed.
Awasi’s iron-rich basalt pathways, juxtapose starkly, and beautifully, with the lush and encroaching jungle, as a kaleidoscope of bird species flit their way between drizzle-ladened vines and grand, lichen-lined tree trunks.
Outside, the heat and humidity clings to every pore, but enter the spacious bar-meets-restaurant and you’re transported to a high-ceilinged cabin of aromatic pine, leather sofas and stained wood coffee tables – forged from huge hunks of fallen giants.
This is an open plan, calming space where guests can sup Argentine wines while pouring over maps or thumbing through glossy travel books.
