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.

A great place to learn a bit about the local customs and their building practices. Enjoyed touring the location and they had great hand crafted products available on site.

This small museum is well presented. A member of staff gives the history as you go in. There are some interesting ethnic products for sale. The ice-cream is delicious.
