If you have any time left in Iguazu, you should definitely go to this animal refuge. After being transported with a tractor to the beginning of the trail, you walk for about 1,5 hours with a guide (Spanish or English) through the animal centre. Most of the animals are recovering here, after being found wounded or illegally trafficked. You'll see all the animals the jungle around Iguazu has to offer (but around the falls you probably won't have seen them) and knowing most of them are not captivated animals, but really recovering and better of than before. The guides are very knowledgeable and show great affection towards the animals and their cause. Another amazing part of the trip, is that there is a good chance you will see 'real and wild' wildlife within the borders of the sanctuary. We saw a howlermonkey sitting in a tree and climbing down, just 3m away from us. The entrancefee (75 A$ end of March 2013) is definitely money well spent, since it is for a good cause.
