Hotel Puerto Valle
Hotel Puerto Valle is a stunning, boutique hotel offering wonderful Argentine hospitality combined with a great wildlife experience, easily accessed just 55 kms from Posadas airport.
At its heart is a fully refurbished, traditional estancia of Corrientes built in 1868. There are 13 guest rooms: 5 Casco rooms - one of which is ideal for families - and 8 Deluxe rooms. A magnificent park of more than 14 hectares, designed by landscape architect Carlos Thays, is home to native and exotic species. The swimming pool overlooks the vast river, deck chairs invite guests to bask in the sun, or choose the shade of an armchair under the straw roof of the palapa.
The superb cuisine in the restaurant highlights typical local ingredients such as river fish and tropical and citrus fruits, which have been part of local recipes since time immemorial. Using contemporary techniques and fresh ingredients from the organic garden, the menu offers a choice of aromas and flavours perfectly matched with a select wine menu, with some of the best labels from Argentina.
Iberá Natural Reserve is one of the largest fresh water reservoirs on the continent, and the largest protected area in Argentina. It has an area of 1.3 million hectares, and hosts four species declared “Natural Heritage of Corrientes Province”: the neotropical otter, the maned wolf, the Pampas deer and the marshland deer. It is also home to the two caiman species of Argentina - the yacare caiman and the broad-snouted caiman – and more than 350 bird species!
Puerto Valle is nestled in the northeastern corner of the reserve, a convenient gateway to discover its wonders with its own private access to the Wetlands. Proximity to the Iguazú Falls (355 kms to IGR airport) makes a visit to the falls with Jesuit Missions (such as San Ignacio, the most famous) en route, an ideal combination.
The Hotel stands on the Paraná River bank, and on the verge of the wetlands, so activities are related to the River - an ecosystem that provides the ideal setting for watching birds and howler monkeys - the Estancia and the Wetlands.
