Guiraoga, Puerto Iguazu

4.4
#1 of 10 in Wildlife in Province of Misiones
Pay a get-well-soon visit to recovering animals at Guiraoga. The sanctuary, located near the famous Iguazu Falls, nurses a range of wounded animals back to health, then prepares them for re-entry into the wild. You can see the adorable animals in their natural habitat on a guided tour around the sanctuary, which might be available in English, depending on your guide. Keep an eye peeled out for colorful toucans and parrots as you walk through the park. The money from your entrance ticket goes towards supporting the sanctuary's work.

  • Seeing the falls is beautiful and humbling - but chances are you won't see too many animals because there are so many people. Probably just coatis (trying to take your food - don't feed them, it's bad for their health!) and some birds. So if you want to see wildlife, don't miss Guira Oga! They help rehabilitate wildlife to reintroduce to the wild - so depending on what animals they are caring for at the moment, you can see some beautiful creatures you would probably never see. We saw monkeys, toucans, eagles and falcons, wildcats and more! It was amazing to see and our guide was so friendly and translated everything to English for us.
  • I think it's great that they focus on helping hurt animals, and rehabilitating them. I had a great experience being guided through the park and getting to learn about the animals.
  • Good place to learn about the animals of the region
  • Nice place to watch birds and some monkeys. We had a bad guide that didn't want to explain in English. The rest is beautiful.
  • Great natural animal experience! Kind of like a zoo, but better.
