After reading reviews, I feel like I should give La Aricupa 5 stars while some think is not worth it. I find La Aricupa inspirational, I went there not knowing much and not expecting much.

At the very beginning I thought this was a different kind of attraction but after my visit I was totally impressed by the simple way they explain everything about the environment, the ecology, the complete story of the place and more important the trees from the area and the awareness of how to take care of them.Beautiful place and well...

This little tourist spot shows some of the ecological and native diversity. Absolutely amazing rose and pineapple ice cream! There are also some nice regional crafts for sale.

We were received by a very nice man who explained what we could do inside, the history of the building, We ended eating at the restaurant and had a great surprise!. The souvenir shop is big and worth a look.

We visited this place on our last day at Iguacu, and pleased we did. A really nice setting with heaps of local craft work to browse through and purchase.

not a must do for a visitor but if you have some time to spare, this place is ok for a stroll. you get to see indigenous furniture and can look through the souvenirs at the gift shops. it is basically like a small market but then you pay a small fee to enter

Amazing wooden structures and buildings. We stayed right across the road from this place and didn't realise how impressive it was. Well worth a visit.

The locals made this huge homage to a tiny game trap. Now it's a huge tourist trap. Literally, the only thing to do here is shop in the three gift shops (there are more gift shops than there are 'attractions' here). Save your money.

We thought we would find a lot more. There are three gift shops and that is about all. The entrance fee should not be so high.

It was very convenient to my hotel-La Cantera Jungle Lodge-and only 20 pesos to get in. I was met by a guide who explained everything to me and then left me to explore on my own. It was very interesting and I enjoyed my visit.
