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.

A beautiful place were you can adopt a tree and buy very good wooden souvenirs very cheap (for example a Brazilian Rosewood table and chairs for 8 people will cost € 100,00).

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. Place is designed around a big scale animal trap the natives have used and probably still do use to catch animals. Its an ecological trip... More

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.
