It's an amazing place where nature rises again and shows us hoy important it is to take care of our enviroment. Although they charge you for a guided tour, I'm still wondering what the tour is about...just for five minutes they tell you about the origin of the place and then they let you to wander around three or four...

The aripuca is a symbol of ancient guaraní tribes used to haunt birds. The concept in here is the gigantic structure made with really big and old trees from the rainforest that were cut down, deforest, to use land for other activities. Now there is only left a 7% of the original rainforest. It was impactant. Otto, the owner of... More

A great experience seeing all the ancient trees. A very interesting English speaking guide gave us a short overview and pointed us in the right direction so see (and hear) everything. A harpist in an open sided building was mesmerising - remember there is a tips basket ! There were 2 shops - one open air showing locals work at... More

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.
