Saskia and Will are here to help give you the inside track.

Pueblo Barrancas was built as an eco-lodge designed to preserve the local environment and avoid negative impact on the coastline. Guests can choose to stay in the delightful bungalows at the front of the property or, for those wanting to be closer to nature, in the luxurious tents on stilt to the rear of the property. The bungalows have en-suite bathrooms, an open plan living area with kitchenette and bedroom. The tents are similar in style, just smaller with zip-up doors.

Room service and the onsite restaurant offer some of the tastiest food in the country, using homegrown vegetables from the lodge's garden the kitchen team produce simple high quality food.

There is a wooden decked pool area and restaurant bar which has been known to host hip summer parties in high seasons. Half Day private trekking from Valizas to Cabo Polonio is available or alternately this can be done on horse back.

Why we love it
