Guira Oga Tours

In the Guarani tongue, "Guira Oga" means Bird House, and you'll find scores of extravagantly plumed residents—toucans, macaws, parrots, parakeets, owls, eagles, guans, tinamous and many more—flitting about their spacious jungle enclosures. This is a rescue center, not a zoo, and most residents were brought here after being badly wounded, often by careless drivers in the national park. Many animals in display are being rehabilitated at the onsite hospital for future release, while others can no longer survive in the wild and are here permanently.

In addition to the birds, this is also a great place to see, and photograph, rather portly local wildlife, including monkeys, caimans, anteaters, agoutis, raccoons, and capybaras, the world's largest (and arguably most adorable) rodent. The park is conveniently located three miles (five km) from Puerto Iguazu, on the road to the waterfalls.

Practical Info

Tours leave every half hour from the visitors center. Some guides do speak English, as well as Portuguese. The park is outdoors, so come prepared with sunscreen, an umbrella and/or DEET-based insect repellent.
