    Ole went out of his way to be helpful in every which way possible. We ended up having dinner together In his lovely garden every evening enjoying wonderful conversations and laughter. An excellent host .

    There’s nothing not to like.

    Pousada El Rufugio is exactly that - a refuge from the crowds and stress of a large city. The house is in a safe and walkable residential neighborhood. It is a 10 minute walk to a very nice grocery store and shopping mall (with a restaurant where my husband said he had the best burger of his life!). The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean and the outdoor garden and pool area will take your breath away. After spending the day walking Iguazu falls, napping in the hammock with a view of the garden was my favorite way to end the day. What really makes Pousada special is the host Ole. One of the kindest, most accommodating people you will ever meet. He made sure we had rides to where we needed to go - even driving us himself if we could not get an Uber. He assisted with crossing the border to the Argentina side of the falls and into Paraguay when we departed. If had not been so gracious and helpful, we would have likely ended up stranded in Argentina as we didn't have any Argentine pesos (he lent us some when dropping us off at the bus station to the falls). He is a lovely person with a great sense of humor and life experiences to share and will go above and beyond to ensure you are most comfortable and taken care of while staying at his home. He provides free bottles of water, sodas, even beer and wine and snacks. The bottles of water were so helpful for the long, hot days we spent at the falls. Thank you Ole for everything and for making our stay in Foz so comfortable and welcoming!
