My boyfriend and I arrived and signed up for an English tour for $100 pesos. Once we started a tour, we found out it was purely Spanish. Our guide Carmen, was very helpful and translated in English, and answered our questions. We really enjoyed the sanctuaries vision and program for rehabilitating animals.

If you like animals, this is a must see! It's the only animal hospital in South America, so animals rescued from all over South America come here. The only way to see it is to pay for a tour, and there are different language tours at different times. They don't receive any government funding so all their income is from... More

This is more of an animal rescue centre, but its certainly worth a visit after you visit the falls. The guides are very informative, and you will get close up with the animals. Its a wonderful place for animal lovers.

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...
