Discover A Mbya-Guarani Community And Enjoy A Hike In The Beautiful Nacional Park Of Iguazu.
The Mbya-Guarani Yryapú community is located just minutes from downtown Puerto Iguazu National Park, where you’ll find the spectacular Iguazu Falls. The community is surrounded by the Iguazu River, and preserves an important remnant of native forest in the area.
Today, the forests are interrupted by cities, borders and plantations. It’s true that the home of the mbya Guarani has been irreversibly transformed. Nevertheless, the forests are still home to hundreds of indigenous families seeking quiet, and with an exemplary resistance, their own place in the new world.
Duration: approx. 6 hours.
This community tour consists of a trek through the jungle to the Iguazu River, where visitors will have the opportunity to relax and enjoy a typical Mbya guarani cuisine. You will have the opportunity to engage with the people of Niagara. This guided jungle tour focuses on conserving indigenous, ancient traditions, and how they intertwine with stories about the struggle to keep land.
