Why is this route 'responsible'?

  • Nature
  • Be a local
  • Culture & Art
  • Unplugged

This tour contributes to a project designed to offer a solution to the high unemployment, illiteracy, disintegration of cultural identity and high vulnerability of the Mbyá-Guaraní community, who reside near Puerto Iguazú. 

Visits to the area serve to conserve the jungle and the “ÑandeReko” (way of living and being) of the legendary Guaraní community. The exchange between different cultures facilitates great respect and understanding, and helps us understand the Guaraní perspective of having greater respect for the rainforest and awareness of its needs. . 

Proceeds from the tour also go towards the “Check Out for Nature” project, which is carried out by Fundación Vida Silvestre, a local partner of WWF and to the organizations visited during the Responsible City Tour in Buenos Aires.
