After 2 days visiting the falls we were not certain how to spend our extra time in Iguazu. Before returning to Buenos Aires' urban environment, we were interested in visiting other nature sites. We took a bus ride from central Iguazu. The bus driver was very nice to assist us and dropped us off just next to the reserve. This... More

We first wanted to go there because on the way back from Iguazu falls we had some time left. It was in the end a great choice. It's not easy to locate and it doesn't target big audience. You won't find many people there but it's the best animal refuge ever seen. Hidden 3km in the jungle abandoned, poisoned and... More

This place works not only as a tourist atracttion but as a centre for rescue, healing and shelter for species that have been injured by hunters or car accidents. It´s extraordinary the job people do there, they show true love for animals. One can feel it in every little story they tell along the visit.

I wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived at Guiraoga. We waited about 20 minutes and boarded an open air truck for a 10 minute drive into the jungle. We walked through a few museum like rooms with displays related to local wildlife. Then we were guided through a number of live animal exhibits on a path leading through... More

We had a leisure day in Puerto Iguazu and decided to check out Guiraoga. We did not know what to expect and were honestly a little hesitant when we entered the vicinity, but we left extremely satisfied with the experience. Our guide, Carmen, was very kind and we could see how much she loves her job. Besides navigating us to... More

The animals are all caged. The Eagles had irons on their feet. Many animals were not exotic such as racoons and armadillos. This is a very mediocre experience. Much better is aviary by the Brazil falls.

Same place as under Guiraoga... well-run wildlife refuge with a solid mission. Your small admission fee goes toward taking care of quite a collection of animals.

I have visited perhaps a dozen of this sort of places around the world, even volunteered for a few. I like the mission and most of the way they go about things. Worth a visit.

This place is not awesome. Animals are all in cages except eagles which are shackled by their feet. Some of the animals discussed like the tiper and jaguar are not even there. They have exhibits for racoons, blue jays, armadillos, all sorts of mundane animals. Its just a zoo and not a very good one

Great guide. They really care for the animals and it gives you a great overview of the area and animals and history of the place. Worth a visit either side of Iguazu falls as puts some meat on bones of info you get from the falls guides. Lovely atmosphere and relies on donations to keep running.
