We had a very good afternoon at Guira Oga althaugh we do not speak Portugues and therefore were not able to understand everything during the guided tour. But the visit of 1,5 hrs was really worth it. You can walk in the forest and you can see the animals.

This is the type of place you expect to see in a beautiful area area like Iguazu, where nature is so impressive. Guiraoga is dedicated to recover animals, plants, local fauna. They do an extraordinary job, they are real heroes. The guides are so knowledgeable they know about local species their story funny things they do, this is place for... More

I'm a bit of an animal softie so I had tears in my eyes watching the info video of a toucan receiving physio and being rehabilitated! They really go above and beyond! I've seen the criticisms on other reviews but I have to disagree I think if you can make a difference to even one animal you should. Much of... More

There is a short video about the organisation with subtitles in English. Whilst our guide delivered the tour in Spanish he had good English and was prepared to translate anything. The tour is about 1 hour and a half. Most animals are there having been rescued from trafficking. Its mostly birds but there are some mammals. Its 100 pesos and... More

There are Tours in English, but they didn't give us that info until we were in the middle of a Spanish tour and the guide was extremely rude about telling us this and how "maybe you'll think about asking next time". It sounded like we mostly missed the history of how they got the animals. There were some neat birds,... More

Excellent way to see some local flora and fauna as you see very little wildlife at Iguazu Falls since it is so heavily traversed. Plus you feel that your admission is going to support rehabilitating animals that have been injured. You ride in a large wagon pulled by a tractor for about 1km into the forest. There are only a...

Our visit to Guira Oga was one part of a packaged city tour the day following our visit to Iguazu. We were fortunate to arrive just in time to join a group tour that would be conducted in both English and Spanish. If traveling on your own, visit the website so you can time your visit.

The price charged was 85 pesos for a 90 minute experience in a guided tour of the animals they care for. There are set tour times and as the next English tour was about 4 hours away, we took the next one in Spanish. The Spanish guide had a pretty good command of English so once she realized we didn't...

The tour here is totally superficial and extremely rushed. Don't expect to have more than a glimpse of the birds. plus most of the animals live here forever so they are making money instead of really understanding nature. They explained hurted animals would be prey out there, which is true but natural. They are supposed to get caught and die... More

If you are stucked in Puerto Iguazu for three days (because to see both sides of the waterfalls two days are enough) this is a good alternative to see. Entrance is 85 pesos which maybe sounds a lot for backpackers, but if you think that you help rescued animals, doesn't sound that much anymore.
