La Aripuca is a project with the sole objective of awakening the ecological conscience, and that was constructed with giant logs of trees of several species. This action is a replica of the giant Arapuca, an indigenous trap used to catch small animals.
The tourist spot is a trap that captures man's attention to the preservation of flora. A true living school, where tourists have a lesson on trees, their scientific names, and their origins. The attraction offers a collection of over 30 species of woods from the northern province of Missiones - which also houses the Argentine side of the Iguazu National Park. La Aripuca impresses with its size.
It has 17 meters high by 60 in diameter. Size that allows you to see it still from the International Route, highway at the exit of Puerto Iguazú.
