La Aripuca Review

It looks like a cross between a log cabin and the Pentagon, but this massive wooden structure—which weighs 551 tons—is a large-scale replica of a Guaraní bird trap. La Aripuca officially showcases different local woods, supposedly for conservation purposes—ironic, given the huge trunks used to build it, and the overpriced wooden furniture that fills the gift shop.

    A less crowded treat . . .

    We enjoyed exploring the giant "trap" house and learning about the forest in a less crowded setting. The gift shop had an amazing array of Guarani crafts, the people were friendly and helpful, and we learned a bit more about the Guarani people and culture. Especially beautiful was the impromptu concert of Namia Cabreras who played the harp exquisitely.
