Mercure Iguazu Hotel Iru
With a setting in the jungle on the edge of the city of Puerto Iguazú, this contemporary hotel really provides you with a sense of at being one with nature. You can soak up the refreshing, foliage-filled surroundings that make you feel as if you’re a world away from urban life, yet you’ll be only ten minutes from the bustle of the city – this is definitely the best of both worlds. Of course, the main attraction is the thundering Iguazú Falls, and the Argentinian side is just a 25-minute drive away. The Brazilian side of the falls can be reached in 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the border crossing. Back at the hotel there’s a large swimming pool which is the perfect place to cool off on a hot day in the jungle, a spa, fitness centre, restaurant and two bars.
The rooms are modern in style, with statement feature walls and contemporary bathrooms. Each room – from Standard Room to Junior Suite – has a balcony or terrace which overlooks the hotel’s grounds or the surrounding jungle.
