Puerto Valle Hotel de Esteros

Puerto Valle rests within a private forest reserve on the banks of a wide lake in the Parana River, near Laguna Valle and the vast Ibera wetlands. Entering the grounds, the road passes through a natural tunnel of towering bamboo.

Guests are welcomed with fresh fruit juices, verbena-scented towels, and views of the sparkling Parana. The tidy hotel grounds are planted with fig, palm, avocado, hibiscus, and an organic garden.

The original, whitewashed ranch house, or Casco Viejo, was constructed in 1868. The surrounding forest is home to howler monkeys, cuckoos, trogons, macaws, and parakeets. In the nearby wetlands, guests can observe capybaras, black caimans, marsh deer, otters, storks, and herons.

Some of our favorite viewing is after dark; the southern night sky is especially brilliant here.

Food is a highlight at Puerto Valle; fresh vegetables, herbs, and fruit compliment simple, flavorful preparations.

The executive chef highlights the typical local ingredients such as fish and tropical citrus paired with herbs and vegetables grown in the organic garden.

The full-board program includes three meals daily, non-alcoholic beverages, guided excursions, and Posadas airport transfers.
