On the City Tour Argentina, in addition to walking through the charming city of Puerto Iguazú, you will get to know three very different and unique places, great for taking beautiful photos and learning a little more about the history of the region. Hito de las Três Fronteras: The place has an extensive infrastructure with restrooms and souvenir shops where you can buy alfajores, dulce de leche and handicrafts created by the local tribes. The place unites three countries and a spectacular view of the borders with a lot of culture and history. La Aripuca is a stunning location in the middle of an environmental reserve whose main attraction is a monument over 17 meters high and weighing 500,000 kg. Its shape resembles a ´´snare trap´´ that's why it keeps that name. The entire structure was built with wood rescued from illegal trafficking, which was reused for the construction of the monument, so that no trees were cut. The infrastructure of the place has restrooms, an outdoor resting place and a shop with handicrafts and an area for tasting artisanal sweets typical of the region, such as dulce de leche with chocolate, hibiscus jelly and wood candy. “La Feirinha” is a place where you can observe details of the life and culture of the people who live in the region, in addition to the stalls with several options of typical Argentine products, such as alfajores and empanadas, as well as a huge variety of wines and cheeses.
