Familiarize yourself with the rich indigenous culture of the Guarani at La Aripuca. This cultural park serves as a tribute to the ancient Guarani tribes living in Argentina. A central pyramid-like structure designed in the shape of a bird trap (or arapuca) showcases the ingenious use of local resources to build important devices. Take a short guided tour to learn how the Guarani people created their tools, and what they used them for. You can buy genuine local handicrafts made by Guarani people at the park's souvenir stalls. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Puerto Iguazu holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the La Aripuca and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Interesting place for a short visit. Their mission is to raise awareness about threats to the rainforest. Also a nice gift shop with a good selection of indigenous products.

  • Entrance was $500 pesos when I visited. It's a great place to spend a slow afternoon. The property is nice and the structures they've created are pretty amazing. The short tour (which they also offered in English) was meaningful and gave enough information to appreciate the property. There is a restaurant on property and souvenir shops.
  • One of the best venues for your Private Dinner of an enclosing event of Incentive Groups. Aripuca was based on a genuine environmental ideia of showing people gigantic timber from deforestation areas. They started collecting a lot of big pieces and chunks of wood at first and making furniture then later on it started to grow and grow so They were able to reach further areas and get more and more trunks of old trees. It has a green attitude, infrastructure big enough for private dinner and know how.
