Upon arrival in Posadas, and on the way to Tacuapi Lodge, you will make a stop at San Ignacio Mini Jesuit ruins. Built in 1632 for the colonization of the natives, these ruins (or “misiones” in Spanish), have been declared a World Heritage Site by the Unesco for its historical importance. The San Ignacio Mini Jesuit ruins are one of the best preserved missions in Argentina. Abandoned by the Jesuits in 1767 when they were forced to leave the continent, today we can still appreciate its original organization: the main square surrounded by the church, the cemetery and other important buildings. Lost in dense vegetation, the remains were found in 1897, but weren’t restored until 1940. Still surrounded by dense vegetation, you can wander between redstone (called “red asperon”, the local stone) wall buildings in this mystic place. Bear witness to the passing of time.
From here you will continue to the beautiful Tacuapi eco-lodge, at the heart of the protected area called “Green Corridor” (an exuberant reserve of the unique “Paraense Rainforest”).
The property involves 50 Has of natural reserve to be discovered along tracks of different difficulties. Many viewpoints, rest areas, waterfalls and bridges allow visitors to walk deep inside the rainforest, observing and experiencing the splendid fauna and flora of the area.
Take it easy in the afternoon: you can relax in the hammock at the balcony of your wooden cottage surrounded by the jungle or enjoy any of the available activities. You can choose between guided treks, flora and fauna observation, or interpretative walks with waterfalls. You can finish any of your adventures just relaxing at the swimming pool.
