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.

Nice place to visit even though it doesn't take you long to see everything. We had planned to eat there but restaurant was only for functions. Very nice gift shops with good quality souvenirs

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.

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.
