Located in the heart of the Yabotí Biosphere Reserve (624,910 acres / 253,000 hectares) in the Misiones province of Argentina, this is one of the last strongholds of subtropical South American jungle.
Days at DON Moconá Virgin Lodge are passed amidst trails, waterfalls, native forests, bird sounds, natural lookout points, adventure activities, ancient legends and the whisper of the Uruguay River that winds around the area and invites you to relax in an environment where pure nature reigns.
The Moconá waterfalls, whose name in the native Guarani language means “that which swallows everything”, are a unique spectacle and they have become one of the main tourist destinations in Argentina. The falls are due to the presence of a geological fault parallel to the bed of the Uruguay River, which makes the river fall onto itself, forming cascades along nearly two miles of land. The visibility of the falls depends on river conditions: with lower flow, they have greater height. On rare occasions, 65-foot waterfalls have been seen, but the average height is between 13 and 19 feet.
