We are a family devoted to the hotel and hospitality industry since 1980.
We aim at making you feel at home. We will orient you so that you can enjoy your stay in this natural wonder, offering you the best personalized service.
At Terra Lodge we invite you to marvel and to rediscover your essence, waking up in a natural environment. The 4 elements which form the sacred cosmogony are present here. Each cottage contains an essential element: Earth, Fire, Air, Water, Light. The red earth, the water of the Iguazú Waterfalls, the pure and aromatic air filled with vegetation, the heat as a symbol of fire and the light, make everything grow in an exuberant and mysterious paradise. The soul of this place comes from the respect with which we have dreamt of this family project together with the human rhythms. The birds ' songs at dawn, the colors of the butterflies, the foliage of the virgin rainforest, orange sunsets and the chanting of the cicadas.
All this is so alive that intensity will touch your heart.
Ecosystem and climate of our region
In this region there is a wide variety of birds and animals which are part of an ecosystem that can only live in this climate and under these geographical conditions.
Great dusky swifts are the most characteristic bird species of the Iguazú Falls. They fly through the interstices of the water columns of the falls in order to stand on the rocky side, where they rest and even make their nests. This bird is the symbol of Iguazú National Park.
In the area of the walkways of the Iguazú Falls it is frequent to find coati populations and the big toucan, which is one of the five species of toucans in the Park.
In the paths you will find a wide variety of butterflies. They are seen in places where there are puddles since they absorb the salts dissolved in such puddles.
By midday, in the sunny parts of the paths you will see Tropidurus lizards climbing trunks and rocks in order to go up the walkways and stairs. The Park is a shelter in the national territory which is home to species in danger of extinction such as the yaguareté or jaguar, the tapir, the ocelot, the margay, the anteater, the dusky-legged guan like the yakutinga, rainforest eagles and the broad-snouted caiman, among others.
Flora of the Iguazú Falls
Various trees which need high humidity grow on the bank of the Iguazú river and on the delta islands. Different species are found in this place such as the curupay, the cupay, the white laurel, the aguay and the ingá, as well as the ceibo, whose flower has been declared Argentina's national flower.
There are over 90 species of trees in the Iguazú National Park, such as the black lapacho, which at the end of winter and before blossoming, is completely covered with pink flowers; the yellow lapacho and the ibirá pytá with yellow flowers; and a rainforest species of ceibo with red-orange flowers.
In some sectors of this National Park a very special community develops: the palmito tree and palo rosa jungle. The latter is a tree which might be over 40 metres high with a straight trunk of up to 2 meters in diameter. Under its shadow and that of other big trees, palmito trees grow, slender palm trees whose trunks end in an edible heart, highly coveted, whose extraction causes the death of the plant.
The climate of this subtropical region called Alto Paraná is hot and wet, which works as a natural greenhouse that makes the abundant vegetation possible.
We could say it is an ideal place to visit any time during the year and enjoy our beautiful swimming-pool and solarium and the comfort of having air-conditioning/ heating in every room of the cottages.
