An interesting concept but reduced to being a series of tourist shops within each structure. A peaceful place to cover from the heat and see something a bit different.

Interesting wooden structure. Informative talk at the entrance, Spanish & English. Then you can wander about on your own. Large wooden structure, made from local various fallen trees. None of the trees used had been cut down. It is a giant replica of a trap that the indigneous peoples of the area use. There was a harpist playing in one... More

This tree museum, or at least I think that's what it is, is a little strange to visit, but it's interesting to learn about the forestry of the region nonetheless. Make sure to grab some flower and yerba mate-flavored ice cream.

The entrance is to this attraction is beautiful, and so is the Aripuca replica. It is a so called tree museum.......made from trees that are hundreds of years old, many different varieties. The information is all written in English and Spanish and is very interesting. There is also a huge space where kids can run around or you can drink... More

This is an open air museum commited to show the lives an crafts of Guarani tribes. Small, easily visited in one hour. The visit starts with a short introduction by the guide, then you can wander the shops and buildings. The main building, the giant wooden Aripuca, is impressive but not original. It is a symbol of the trap that... More

We paid $6 U.S dollars per person to enter and leisurely saw the whole thing in under an hour. This place is a great chance to support a local family and learn about trees and culture. It's also a good place to purchase local gifts. There is no restaurant, but they do have ice cream and a few basic food... More

This was a great place for our family to visit within walking distance of our accommodation. We had an English speaking guide who gave us the background of the Aripuca and then you walk around to all the buildings. The buildings are amazing structures. It's good to go for a short excursion or stay there a couple of hours like... More

A very interesting look into the preservation of flora and fauna of the jungle. The structures built with hundreds of years old tree trunks are incredible. You can fit a little house inside.

My friend and I were trying to visit the animal rehabilitation center nearby and the next English tour wasn't going to leave for another 90 minutes, so our driver suggested we La Aripuca for an hour if we didn't want to sit on the bench and wait. I'm glad we came here. It had a small entry fee and then... More
