I discovered this place while walking and it was a lovely place to look around and take a break. I found the crafts to be affordable and unique. The main attraction is a gigantic building made from large tree parts - really unusual place to visit.

The entrance fee (50 pesos) includes the entrance and a 5 minutes guided tour explanation of what this small park is. Then, it is just a place to take pictures of the different trees that used to inhabit the area and to do some shopping. Only worth if you have 1 hour remaining in your schedule and don't have any...

Fascinating facility - the guide first explains how the natives trapped small animals then shows you this giant replica of the trap build from old forest redwoods (similar to the California type). You can then wander the area to see (and buy) local native crafts. We also heard Tomasito playing his native harp in a nearby building. The music was... More

Our visit to Aripuca was a part of a packaged city tour following our day at Iguazu. We had no idea what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. After a short orientation to the site by the bilingual guide who explained the purpose of Aripuca and its role in informing visitors of the importance of preserving and sustaining the forest,...

The tour offers a look at the traditional culture of the indigenous people of Iguazu, but their contemporary culture is also very much on display.

While the idea or even ´mission´ behind La Aripuca is a good one, and I must express at this point that I respect this family´s attempt at making a difference in the wasteful use of wood, and deforestation of misiones; I couldn´t help but feel that the park was lacking a little something to make it special. The giant animal... More

It is instructive and relaxing. Great to spend an afternoon in the nature. Don't know about the restaurant, I haven't tried.

La Aripuca is the front for a Guerini community that lives on the land where the tourist attraction is located. They sell souvenirs from a small table at the rear of the large attraction. Your fee is supporting them. It's a nice spot with interesting things that will keep you busy for all of 30 min or so. Still, it's... More

Interesting spot. It shows how much the rsidents of Puerto Iguazu care for the ecology. It is a place to learn what the "Selva Misionera" would look like if it had been protected. Nice gift shop. Unfortunately I missed the guarani choir singing.
