Details of Day Tours

Early in the morning, we will pick you up from Iguazú hotels and we will go to San Ignacio, 230 km far away. Between the dense jungle of Misiones, rises the relief of ruins of San Ignacio Reduction, the rest of a civilization designed by jesuits and built by Guaraníes hands 400 years ago. The temple front was made with pink sandstone in 1610 and its american barroco design was rebuilt by a scientific group during the last century. This reduction has been buried under the jungle for 2 centuries. 

A lot of tourists visit this place every year. It is located in San Ignacio centre on route 12, 60 kilometres away from Posadas. The right temple wall today seems perfect because during the summer a group of specialists were preening it. It was possible because the World Monuments Foundation donated 50.000 dollars to make the walls seem good. Because of the area's tropical climate, the wall gets bad easily. 

After you discover the Ruinas de San Ignacio culture and heritage, we will go to Minas de Wanda, founded by polac colons in 1936. This name is because of a polac princess who loves the beautiful stones. This is the reason why the village located on the Paraná riverside is called that; one of the particularities of this mine is that it is outdoors. Visitors can walk, explore the caves and watch the exact moment when workers make some explosion in the mine. 

At the end of the day, after you discover the Jungle of Misiones can hide, you will be taken to your hotel in Puerto Iguazú.
