  • My visit to the Aripuca it was very interesting for the message it conveys. The message has that see with care for them forests, the flora and the fauna. In forests they collected specimens of hundreds of years that lived in the jungle and with them put together a giant Aripuca and different structures.

  • Can be considered as a center that tries to create awareness of it urgent and necessary of taking care of the nature, specifically, our jungle South American. See species of trees of the region that already not are... is moving. The guarani culture in this pays homage to the figure of the aripuca.

  • The entrance is expensive! When you realize that they are just business. Do we still ask ourselves: looked us at the face?
