La Aripuca, Puerto Iguazu

3.7
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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Puerto Iguazu holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the La Aripuca and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • We had visited the Arpuca 15 years ago and we surprised pleasantly its growth. It is a very nice ride. You can go with children of any age, since, not takes long traverse it. It's very interesting.

  • Beautiful place for half day ride. We harness with a sky in full, after having completed a visit to falls. We have some souvenirs since it has a couple of very well-stocked and large spaces as for handicrafts and other native products. As well as other attended by descendants of Guarani natives. Until we tested in the ice-cream parlour of the place ice cream of yerba mate, and other sweets. We rejoice with the music of the harp played by Tommy and take back a couple of CDs at very good prices. Highly recommended

  • the Tour begins with a guide telling the story of the site which is pretty cool, then you are free to walk through the scene, take pictures and try new flavors. There's a souvenir shop selling alfajor mate, hibiscus and jelly Jam (that's right ... sweet wood) paid R $17.00. A diner who sells ice cream and hibiscus. Are planning a restaurant should open in the next few months. Too bad it was raining ... but beautiful photos.

  • 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.
