This is an open air museum commited to show the lives an crafts of Guarani tribes. Small, easily visited in one hour. The visit starts with a short introduction by the guide, then you can wander the shops and buildings. The main building, the giant wooden Aripuca, is impressive but not original. It is a symbol of the trap that... More

We paid $6 U.S dollars per person to enter and leisurely saw the whole thing in under an hour. This place is a great chance to support a local family and learn about trees and culture. It's also a good place to purchase local gifts. There is no restaurant, but they do have ice cream and a few basic food... More

This was a great place for our family to visit within walking distance of our accommodation. We had an English speaking guide who gave us the background of the Aripuca and then you walk around to all the buildings. The buildings are amazing structures. It's good to go for a short excursion or stay there a couple of hours like... More

A very interesting look into the preservation of flora and fauna of the jungle. The structures built with hundreds of years old tree trunks are incredible. You can fit a little house inside.

My friend and I were trying to visit the animal rehabilitation center nearby and the next English tour wasn't going to leave for another 90 minutes, so our driver suggested we La Aripuca for an hour if we didn't want to sit on the bench and wait. I'm glad we came here. It had a small entry fee and then... More

This is a worthwhile place to spend an hour or so if you're in the area. Great place to get handicrafts for every reasonable prices, and even buy larger items like furniture from local wood and leather products. No hustling or bargaining. And the mate and rose petal ice cream served at the cafe alone are totally worth it. But... More

It's an amazing place where nature rises again and shows us hoy important it is to take care of our enviroment. Although they charge you for a guided tour, I'm still wondering what the tour is about...just for five minutes they tell you about the origin of the place and then they let you to wander around three or four...

The aripuca is a symbol of ancient guaraní tribes used to haunt birds. The concept in here is the gigantic structure made with really big and old trees from the rainforest that were cut down, deforest, to use land for other activities. Now there is only left a 7% of the original rainforest. It was impactant. Otto, the owner of... More

A great experience seeing all the ancient trees. A very interesting English speaking guide gave us a short overview and pointed us in the right direction so see (and hear) everything. A harpist in an open sided building was mesmerising - remember there is a tips basket ! There were 2 shops - one open air showing locals work at... More
