  • 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.
