It was a rainy day when we decided to visit this place. It was OK but nothing too fancy. We saw some mandioca and pineaplle plants and some of the souvenirs made by the local guaranies.

Highlight for me meeting the true locals
Jan 2018 • Friends
A few of us came to visit this community of around 450 people who have been relocated by the government as their land is now unavailable to them. They have 300 hectares to grow crops, feed their families, kids go to school etc.
our guide was lovely and although quite shy as many of the people are here, he was helpful and kind.
The people are proud of their culture and their history and that was conveyed by our interpreter.
Our guide showed us the traps and snares they still use today to catch quail, armadillo and other creatures.
The highlight was when he allowed us to snap photos of his girls. He has 5 and four of them were playing nearby. They were shy but charmed by our easy going nature. He also brought us out his brand new baby boy. Yes 6 kids at the age of 45 to his beloved partner. He was one proud daddy.
Don’t expect much here. It’s. Basic and simple because that’s how they live.
Be respectful and conscious of their culture.
Wheelchair friendly. Kid friendly. Good parking. Small fee to enter which goes back into the community.
I tipped this man because of his generosity, sincerity and knowledge that he freely shared.
This is why I travel .....

We went there whipe in a tour. Upon arrival you are drop on front of the community. The souvenir area has the same things you find other places but, the sale people are not friendly and do not semm motivated.

A Reminder of How Differently Live - Give Thanks!

While many guarani have left for the big city. There are a number of people left in the indigenous community ranging from young to very old. I found the way these people rely on each very heart warming but I fear for what will happen for the next generation.

Local culture.
Jun 2016 • Couples
Took a nice leisurely walk through jungle area led by a guide. We were not real impressed with his knowledge. Did see some red ant hills about 4 feet tall & 6 feet around! Also lots of interesting trees & plants. Lots of banana trees & pineapples too! Replicas (to size) of their various traps & housing from before. Passed their housing & cooking areas, which reminded me of the poorly cared for indian reservations of the 1920's in the USA. Walking distance from Aripuca & Guir-oga.

such an insight into the Guarani world
Jul 2016 • Family
This was a really good tour of a guarani community. Our guide was friendly and really interesting to listen to explaining his Guarani world. From fauna to flora, community and society, he was well informed and presented well.
Very much enjoyed.

Sad and kinda interesting
May 2016 • Couples
A small glimps of the local indigenous Indians. No local had anything nice to say about them..lazy...ra ra ra. They dont live in a traditional way but they do live in a community. We were interested as it wasnt a tourist show, just a walk around in the mud and you see how it is for them. They have a school and health centre, loads of babies, dogs, cats and chickens. The women have to give birth in hospital, not on the community. .
There was a few plants around but not what id call sustainable living. I felt sad afterwards but glad i went.

Not much of Guarani anymore...
The entrance fee is quite expensive for what it really is (80 pesos). You are going there expecting to see and learn more of the guarani culture but once there, you realize that they moved on and are leaving in a balance with the civilized world (they have tap water and even electricity). I'm not saying that this is bad, in fact I believe that it is good that they are moving forward in their life styles, but then please don't sale this place as "meet the original Guarani" because it's no longer the case

A short trip to the original population
Sep 2014 • Family
A nice view of the local lifestyle before the “civilization”.

You will spend a couple of hours visiting a small village, making a walk in the jungle with a native guide, learning how they hunt and enjoying a children's choir.

Interesting.
