The "guided tour" takes 2 minutes and that's it. Yes of course you can buy a drink/snack and some souvenirs as well. But paying for a ticket to get in has absolutely no added value.

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.

A smallish site on the edge of town - best to taxi from town centre. Interesting collection of buildings containing touristy gifts at reasonable prices. Worth a visit but an hour or so does it. 110 pesos entrance fee includes a 5 min introduction to...More
