A taste of luxury in the South American rainforest

A while back I visited Peru as a guest of Contours Travel. It was an impressive trip with everything extremely well organised. 

Now Contours Travel – the longest-operating Latin American holiday agency in Australia – is taking bookings for a new luxury, all-inclusive retreat close to one of the world’s largest waterfalls – Iguazu Falls - in Argentina. 


To celebrate, Contours Travel is offering Australians the chance to stay two nights and get the third free – a saving of $1200 per person – for stays between April and October, 2018.

Flanking the wild Iguazu River just 20 minutes from the falls, the newly-opened Awasi Iguazu hotel comprises 14 private villas nestled among rainforest and built on stilts for minimal environmental impact. 


Each villa boasts a private plunge pool, beautiful jungle views, outdoor shower and spacious living area. Look out for creatures ranging from jaguars to capybaras.

Iguazu Falls has starred in films such as The Mission (1986), Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) and Black Panther (2018). The surrounding jungle is home to hundreds of bird species, rare mammals and endangered trees and ferns.

The stay at Awasi Iguazu includes a number of excursions including visiting 18th-century Jesuit ruins, kayaking through the jungle, bird watching and sharing time with local Guarani tribes who can teach guests about ancient crafts and tribal history. 

Allocated their own private guide, guests can customise the excursions to suit their own preferences and interests.

Awasi Iguazu’s resident chef sources seasonal produce from the rainforest surroundings as well as the kitchen garden, while the open bar provides a place where guests can socialise and sip their beverage of choice.

Under the free night offer, three-night stays at the luxury, all-inclusive hotel are available from $3205 per person, twin-share - a saving of $1200 per person - for stays from April to October, 2018.

Included in the package is three nights’ accommodation in a private villa, private transfers from and to Puerto Iguazu Airport, all meals, open bar for beverages and customised private excursions, including the use of a 4WD vehicle and a private guide. 

Flights from Australia, and extra nights at the Iguazu Falls, are additional.
