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.

  • A magical place for children and adult learning, is a refuge for the animals, hit the road, wounded by poachers, or delivered by the settlers because they were like pets or the traffic of animals. The work is wonderful because they heal them and return them to their natural habitat and which are not protected within the workplace. The input helps to pay the expenses of these wonderful professionals and refuge. Essential help and pass by the place.

  • It is a center where rescues, care and reinserted as much as possible to the fauna of the area by accident, human exploitation or other causes has suffered and not can on their own continue to live in freedom. There there are veterinarians who heal such animals victims of traffic accidents. They are also against the animals that should live free pets, and along with custom collaborate in detecting illegal wildlife trafficking, rescuing those copies and trying to reintegrate them. It is private so it is good to go to collaborate with the entrance and get to know the work they do.

  • A very beautiful place to go with kids it is very instructive, there you can see the work carried out to preserve the species in the area, reported very little thing. A guided tour, which lasts 1:30 hours very well narrated. I clarify is not a zoo.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • An excellent wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centre - the guides are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. I thoroughly recommend a visit, it's even possible to walk there and back from Puerto Iguazu (trust me, I did it!)
