Hotel of the week
The largest waterfall system in the world finally has a luxe place to stay on its spectacular northern side, said Jacqueline Gifford in Travel + Leisure. Awasi’s new 14-cabin lodge near Iguazú Falls “knows how to bring style to the wilderness”: Each luxe cabin has a plunge pool, uncompromised views over rain forest, and both a private guide and a Ford Bronco on call for excursions. Devil’s Throat is a must: Though the cascade can be glimpsed from Brazil, “its scale and power are best appreciated in Argentina.” Swap stories with other guests when you gather for dinner at the main lodge.
