Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
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.

  • I really enjoyed getting to know this place, it's a quick visit, but it's worth it! The Park has a huge trap made with trees that have suffered deforestation, but they were destroyed because they were hollow. This structure is intended to educate people that carelessness with nature day to day builds a trap for ourselves. Being in the Park, it's worth a quick stop for an ice cream, the flavors are quite different, I loved the roses.

  • Species of environmental Park who values the issue of sustainability and preservation of forests. It has several structures made of wood depicting the names. Also has several craft shops, souvenir and also a cafeteria. As it was one of the stops of the Puerto Iguazu City tour I don't know how much is the ticket.

  • I loved this place, it's quaint, lots to look at, nice people, products made by the natives from the area, short tour, short walk from a few hotels.
  • Great for cultural sightseeing. Knowing local Indian culture.
  • This is a huge replica of the Indian animal trap built in different species of very old trees. They have a restaurant and souvenirs and don't forget to try their mate ice cream and rosella ice cream!

  • Beautiful park! Aripuca in Portuguese means Trap, and has that name because they want to get the message that men when devastate nature are up to your own trap. Worth the visit and don't forget to taste the sweet wood and sweet chocolate milk! The value of the input and is selling the items in the shop is intended for maintenance of the Park is the sustainability of the local community.
