La Lorenza

Little paradise in the Atlantic Rain Forest.

La Lorenza is a small private reserve only 50 minutes away from the city of Iguazu, in the north eastern tip of Argentina. With tourism as an ally, its aim is to conserve a portion of the Atlantic Forest and the rich diversity contained in it. Located on the Paraná River across from Paraguay, the property is surrounded by the rainforest and small farms where local families live of the land. Today it has a wooden house and a deck, a privileged spot to chill after each excursion.
