A short attraction that is pretty much all about wood. The arioica is a small wooden trap used by the Guarani natives to entrap animals without killing them. The park features a bigger size representation made of huge logs of different local species

It's a place interesting, you can visit it and least a bit about the local flora in the region. You have to try the ice creams with different flavors.

This is a fascinating place to see lots of wood. The main structure is stunningly beautiful and it was really interesting to see the varieties of trees used to build it. A good few hours passed.

An interesting concept but reduced to being a series of tourist shops within each structure. A peaceful place to cover from the heat and see something a bit different.
