The Copper Canyon Sierra Lodge is nestled against the side of a small pine-scented valley in the Copper Canyon and is about as far off the beaten path as you can get. Here you'll find no electricity, no telephones, no TV's, no radios, no internet. Experience Copper Canyon without the noise and bustle of modern life - experience the best Copper Canyon has to offer!
The lodge is built like a long, low, old-fashioned log cabin with a corrugated tin roof. The 18 guest rooms open onto a long tiled front porch, with rustic wooden, hand-crafted log chairs. Kerosene lanterns are strung across the porch. Relax with a good book, visit with friends, all while the Cusarare River, located directly in front of the lodge, twists and winds its way through the valley to a nearby waterfall.
Although rustic in nature, the guest rooms are spacious with rich, red-tiled floors, white plaster and log walls, Indian rugs, homespun cotton bedspreads, beamed ceilings, Indian murals, and modern, tiled bathrooms with hot water and even bathrobes! The gentle glow of the gas lamps lends romance. Each room has a wood-burning stove to keep you warm, a few with fireplaces. Guests find that there is an elegance to the rustic lodging at the Copper Canyon Sierra Lodge - each room offers plenty of rest and comfort.
All meals are included and the simple, hearty food is perfect after a day of hiking to the nearby waterfall, painted caves or the village of Cusarare. Guests dine together in a large and delightfully cozy room with a giant stone fireplace, Indian murals, and varnished tables. A roaring fire takes the night chill away, and so do Marta's margaritas. Make a toast to the fine folks who delight in making your stay authentic in every way!
This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
