• Top-range lodging recommendations in Iguazú
Among the top of the line lodgings in Puerto Iguazú there are really only two obvious choices, especially if you’re here for only a night or two — the Sheraton Hotel (now the Melia) located in the National Park in Argentina or the Hotel das Cataratas located in the national park on the Brazilian side.
These are the only hotels located in the actual park itself, so they have a corner on the market. Although a Brazilian visa is needed to stay there and it’s more expensive, the Hotel das Cataratas has much more character and style than Melia Hotel, but the Sheraton provides the ability to observe capachin monkeys up close, as they can be found hanging all around the property.
