Official star rating:
For a peaceful, intimate retreat with restaurants on the doorstep, and just a short drive from the falls, it’s hard to beat this pocket-sized B&B run by Argentinean wildlife photographer and animal behaviourist, John Fernandes.
A handful of brightly-painted shutterboard casitas – with warm, all-wood interiors and decks sit under the trees in a tropical garden rich with birds and butterflies. Walkways link them with a little al fresco dining area – with tables made from hewn tree trunks where a great breakfast and cocktails at sunset.
Set in a lush jungle garden with abundant bird life, the property feels restful and heart-of-nature, yet it sits on a leafy residential side street just under a kilometre south of downtown Puerto Iguazú. There’s a homey comfort food restaurant literally next door and dozens more within a few minutes’ walk.
