We read somewhere that it opened a 8am but in fact it's 9am with the first English tours at 10am (according to the sign) and 10:30am (according to the first staff member to arrive). Sadly we had a bus to catch and couldn't stay! :( Another tip: It's about 15 min from the Puerto Iguazu bus terminal by road. We... More

I got to guiraoga thinking I'd walk 2 km and see one parrot, one monkey and two tucans. But when I was buying my tickets, the lady said that the first part was a 10 minute truck drive and that was exactly what we did. After that, we went into a room where they showed a vedio on how they... More

Visiting Güira Oga was one of the highlights of my two weeks in Argentina. These people do very important work to help animals and they need our support. If you only do one thing besides the waterfalls, this is it. Don't miss it.

This is a wonderful project!! The tour is in Spanish but even if you don't speak Spanish it is worth visiting. The tour is very well organised and the work is described in detail. After an introduction by our guide and an audio-visual, we got to meet the animals. The project is made possible by visitors paying the entrance fee.... More

Very well organized jungle animal rescue facility. A tractor takes you to a 1 hour guided tour (Spanish only and all signage is Spanish only). Am introductory video has English subtitles. Then you are guided past enclosures of rescued animals who can't be returned to the wild. Up to 1/2 hour wait for the next tour, so allow at least... More

Call ahead to check on English speaking guided tour times. 4. A quiet enclave away from the hustle and bustle of Iguazu Falls. 5.We enjoyed the 2 hours we spent there. 6.... More

Guiraoga meaning "bird's nest" is an amazing wildlife refuge for birds and animals which were either abandoned as pets or were injured in an accident or while being hunted. If you have two hours to spare, it is definitely worth a visit! There is a guided tour - which takes you first for a 10 minute ride in a tractor... More

Amazing animal sanctuary. The tour is guided, make sure to take a tour with a guide that speaks your language (English or Spanish). The tour last 80 minutes, and goes trough the jungle on walkways. Mant stops, and really cool animals

Something very nice to add on top of the "cataratas" if you have some time to spare. It is a one and a half hour activity where you can learn what this center is doing to rescue and rehab a lot of animals (especially birds) and with the entrance fee you contribute to keep it open. Guides are very passionate... More
