  • It is a ride that needs to be done, by that makes you feel as a famous writer lived his life in a very peculiar, faithful reflection in his literary works. The place is kept in good condition, the accesses are not very good. The guide we had, seemed to be a scholar of the history of Quiroga, and passionate person being the heart stories... it is recommended to have a notion of time, and more if you go with guys, because you talk perhaps bored them. Price of admission $A 50.

  • Don't miss this visit, you will be able to tour the two houses by Horacio Quiroga, a guide that tells you the story of this writer, and a trail of reeds where can listen to some of the jungle tales, narrated for children, with some sculptures representing these stories. When you arrive you'll see new construction to receive mode, where you will be able to see photos and videos and a must-see River view. Entry, $50, and contribuis to this museum does not disappear. The parking lot is very small, you can leave the car in the street.

  • Worth a visit to get to know a little about the life and history of the writer. However, access was not well signposted, and the locals didn't know give many indications. Is a short (approx. 2 km) dirt road that was not in very good conditions.
