Guiraoga, Puerto Iguazu

4.4
#2 of 8 in Wildlife in Puerto Iguazu
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.

  • Maybe because I knew the bird park in Foz, this place seemed to me very poor. I rescue the work they are doing with the animals that they protect, but I had the feeling that sold us smoke. We were told that there were "direct interaction with native species". I figured that they were released and obviously I disappoint to find me with a kind of Zoo and small spaces where animals were mostly caged. Reminded me of the Zoo of Foz do Iguaçu (which by the way is free). Very short visit by the price of admission ($200). There is no relationship since in falls let you be all day for $260. Another point to highlight: the English of the Guide could be improved (especially the pronunciation) recommend to those who have the opportunity to visit the zoo in Foz do Iguaçu. You will find the same in Guiraoga and will not pay the entrance fee.

  • We went today and it is one of the most beautiful and interesting walks. The work done by return to the habitat and care for them is very courageous. Seized us the rain at the end of the ride, but we had fun. Exciting!

  • A nice hike for anything advertised. Our Hotel was located just 100 metres from this shelter but had it not been a taxi driver to point him out to us we would have lost. Visit interesting and very interesting especially the explanations provided by the guide who escorted us. I highly doubt they tour in different language than Spanish, this is the only "limit" for those unfamiliar with the local language. I don't recommend visiting families with small children in tow in respect of animals which ill tolerate screams and noises.

  • Amazing place! An active animal sanctuary that rescues, rehabilitates and releases various animals. They have about 300 animals. Visitors can only visit animals that are unfit to be released and are instead used for breeding, to minimize human contact of soon to be wild animals. Tours in Spanish and English take about two hours. Highly recommended, for kids and adults alike!!
  • 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 vehicle to observe glacier.
  • 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.
