Historic Walking Area
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.

  • It had already gone last year but this year I loved more because they finished works and was spectacular. A place with trees between 500 and 1000 years, green and local space which you can buy herbs, ornaments, mates, key rings, etc. They made a waterfall with beautiful colored fish. Do not miss it!
