Accommodations in Puerto Iguazú
As well as the five star international hotels in the National Park –such as the Sheraton which overlooks the falls- or the bohemian youth hostels in Puerto Iguazú, there are also several different accommodation options for those who want to wake up to the sounds of the jungle, from rustic cabins in some of the rural communities for those keen on eco-tourism, to the high end of luxury in tree-top lodges in the heart of the jungle such as Yacutinga Lodge, a stunning refuge in its own private nature reserve which offers every comfort for keen nature lovers.
The five-star Hotel Sheraton International Iguazú Resort has a spectacular view of the falls in the middle of the National Park.

Accomodation in Posadas
If you want to do some more digging around the Jesuit reductions and maybe visit a few mate tea plantations, your best bet is to base yourself in the town of Posadas, the provincial capital of Misiones, which tends to be a bit quieter as it misses out a bit on all the fun in Iguazú.
