Bosque Guarani zoo, Foz do Iguacu

2.3
#3 of 7 in Zoos & Aquariums in State of Parana
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Bosque Guarani zoo, a free zoo, is home to a large collection of exotic birds and butterflies. Located just across from the city’s main bus terminal, the zoo is part of Parque das Aves (Bird Park) and is easily accessible by a short walk from the region’s famed waterfalls. Thriving under protection of expert scientists are several types of wild parrots, macaques, macaws, peacocks, turtles, and rheas. You can see these tropical species in their big cages, in a jungle setting typical to their natural environment. Bring your camera and stop by the large pond where the caiman idles away his days. Use our Foz do Iguacu family vacation planner to arrange your visit to Bosque Guarani zoo and other attractions in Foz do Iguacu.

  • By be free until I understand the abandonment, more I suffered too much because of animals, you saw them depressed, without fresh food in the cages and the place from what I've seen or had any security leaving animals the mercy of the goodwill of the visitors. Total carelessness.

  • We decided to go because we didn't have anything scheduled for the mornings. I thought I missed some signs for pedestrians because we turned it around at the zoo all outside to find the entrance. It's free and when we arrived the animals were being fed. Some seemed to be cold, because they were looking for the Sun I c of "Oz" looked sad. I couldn't see the alligator ... worth it if you have time available but not a must.

  • The forest has a large area, all trees, is well located and is within easy reach, after Integration, Terminal has many animals to admire, the kids love it and adults too, the Friday of the 6:00 pm 10:00 pm has the handicraft and sweets in front of Woods, it's worth checking out and the entrance to the Forest Guarani is free!

  • Free zoo in the downtown, not very big but worth to see.
  • It is an abandoned zoo.
  • I found a great place. Very green and right in the middle of the city. The animals seemed to be well treated. Just do not give a ten because of the lack of security. I saw no police, guard and even saw an employee of City Hall there. At the entrance there's a playground that had prostitutes and beggars which to my view the tour disrupted families. As there is no security, had a couple in there that I'm even blushing in imagine what they were doing. The presence of a single guard there already inhibits it. However the Indian tour. There is no fare to enter.

  • Tiny, but cute!!!! One opinion is that some bird nurseries could be larger so they could fly a little more!!

Where to stay in Foz do Iguacu

Given the one dominant attraction in Foz do Iguacu, it's not surprising that the vast majority of accommodations sit on the south side of town, on the way to the waterfalls. To get as close as possible to the falls, stay in the southern neighborhoods of Jardim Eldorado or Jardim Iguacu. Many of the hotels in those neighborhoods line Avenue das Cataratas, the road that leads all the way to the falls. To get a better feel for the rest of the city, stay in the city center or its next-door neighborhood, Vila Paraguaia. From your hotel near the Parana River, you'll enjoy views over the neighboring city of Ciudad del Este in Paraguay.
