Had a great time in Karadya! The owner is a very nice man who knows a lot about the environment and the wildlife that lives there. He took us on a walk through the forest and explained a lot about the trees, plants, birds, animals, etc that live there. It was really interesting. We also used a net to catch...

We stayed in a beautiful wooden tower dedicated entirely to our personal accommodation with bedroom, bathroom, living area and roof-top access for relaxing and watching birds in the trees around. Hospitality was excellent, including food, with catering for personal dietary needs. Exploring the beautiful private reserve was a great experience especially for birdwatching. Julian is a friendly, helpful and expert...

Karadya Bio-Reserve is a fantastic place that allows you to explore, relax, and enjoy the beauty that is so unique to Misiones, Argentina. While only about an hour from Iguazú National Park and the airport, it provides a quiet paradise where you can take a siesta in a hammock, sit and watch the wildlife from a deck, or put on...

I stayed at the Bio Reserva for a whole month so I really got a good impression of the place and its owners Luciana and Julian. I must say that this place is magical as it lies in the heart of the rainforest. If you are into nature make sure you go there. Everyday i discovered different species of animals...

I spent 4 days at Karadya with Julian and Luciana and stayed at the new bird watching tower, and spent time learning about some of Julian's projects. The accommodation is beautiful, set in a secluded area of the forest, but very close to the education centre at the same time. The catering was excellent, with plenty of home cooked regional...

This is a really gorgeous and quiet place, run by two committed biologists, Julian and Liliana. They bought the land a few years ago and have focused on reforesting some of the area that had been cut. They are building a new lodge which will be great when it opens, which is scheduled to be about a year. In the...

What better people to own and run a property trying to conserve this disappearing forest area than two Biologists! I travelled to the Lodge on my own during late August 2012. Having birded quite heavily in the surrounding forests for a week, I wasn't expecting to see many new species. I tagged along with Julian and some well known professional...

A well built cosy hostel with top modern bathrooms provides perfect housing for great adventures in a hotspot of the Misiones nature. Nice trails give access to a large variety of biotopes and the birding is extraordinary. The biologists Julián and Luciana have a great knowledge of all sides of this eco system and provide top nature guiding in the...

I spent four nights at this hostel and it was one of the highlights of my three month trip to Argentina. Julian and Luciana were fabulous hosts, the hostel was well equipped with new beds, great showers and a very functional kitchen. I LOVED staying here and did not want to leave. Can't wait to return!

We have been some days in Karadya in the company of Luciana and Julian her husband. The place is amazing and we were happy to share with them all their knowledge about the jungle. All this with the company of their three labradors, specially Muffasa and Afrodita. Take your time to stay with them if you come to the falls,...
