Escape to Serene Nature and Exquisite Birdlife at La Lorenza Reserve
This excursion is a birdwatcher’s paradise, offering a bird manual and telescope to aid in our search for the most emblematic birds in the area. We’ll stroll through the forest and nearby paths, where we may spot some of the 300 species of birds that can be found in La Lorenza. The golden-crested woodpecker, robust woodpecker, band-tailed manakins, various species of tanagers and euphonias, the rough-billed hummingbird, and the red-ruffed fruit-crow with its scarlet chest are just a few of the species we may encounter.
With a bit of luck and patience (increased during the Argentinean winter, from June to August), we may also catch a glimpse of two species of toucans that are less well-known than the toco toucan but just as fascinating due to their unique coloring: the chestnut-eared aracari and the spot-billed toucanet, the latter of which is endemic to the Atlantic Forest.
Nature offers us a unique opportunity to share in its wonders, to observe and learn about the behavior, ecological value, and characteristics that make each species unique. Led by ornithological guides specialized in the Atlantic Forest, this excursion is suitable for both amateur and beginner bird watchers.
The visit culminates on our deck, where we can enjoy a panoramic view of the Paraná River while sipping on a refreshing drink and sampling a local appetizer. La Lorenza’s bird list is also available for those who wish to continue their birdwatching adventures.

Starting around 6 am, your ornithologist guide will meet you at your hotel with binoculars and a telescope in hand. Together, you will begin a walk through the jungle and nearby paths in search of the most emblematic birds in the area. La Lorenza is home to up to 300 species of birds (registered), including the golden-crested woodpecker, robust woodpecker, band-tailed manakin, and varieties of Black-breasted plovercrest. Especially noteworthy is the rough-billed hummingbird, a very territorial species that can always be seen in the same place. Other species to look out for include the red-ruffed fruit-crow with its scarlet chest, different species of tanagers and euphonias, woodcreepers, and of course the two species of surucua trogon and black-throated trogon.
With some luck and patience (especially during the Argentinean winter from June to August), it’s also possible to spot two species of toucans that are less famous or popular than the toco toucan but have fascinating coloration: the chesnut-eared aracari and the spot-billed toucanet. The latter is of great value as it’s endemic to the Atlantic Forest.
As you venture into nature, you’ll learn about the behavior of birds, their ecological value, and the characteristics that make them unique. This outing is suitable for amateurs and beginners in bird watching and photography. It’s led by ornithological guides specialized in the Atlantic Forest.

What Our Travelers Says

I could not improve a thing!!!
"The tour was amazing! We had toured the Brazilian side of the falls the day before on our own. Getting explanation from Yvette about both sides helped us understand more about the falls and the difference between the two areas. Yvette was very informative and her English was excellent. She knew when to give the group extra time and when to hurry us along with ease. She had us to every spot when we needed to be there. Yvette answered all of our questions and was helpful to others, even people not on our tour. The tour was fantastic! I highly recommend seeing both sides.

I can confidently say that this tour…
"I can confidently say that this tour was one of the best experiences of my life. From start to finish, the tour was nothing short of exceptional, and our guide, Mariella, was an absolute gem. Mariella's knowledge of the area and the falls was extensive and her enthusiasm infectious. She kept us entertained and informed throughout the day, making sure to stop at all the best viewpoints and sharing interesting anecdotes along the way. The falls themselves were breathtaking, and Mariella's guidance really made the experience all the more special. What really impressed me, however, was Mariella's quick thinking and care when one of our fellow visitors took a fall. She immediately sprang into action, ensuring the individual was taken to the emergency room and receiving the best care possible. Her professionalism and concern for our well-being was truly admirable, and it made the tour feel even more like a family outing than just a group of strangers. Overall, I cannot recommend iguazufalls.com and Mariella enough. The tour was exceptional, and the experience of the falls themselves was unforgettable. Mariella's care and attention to detail really made the day, and I would give this tour a perfect 10/10 rating.

Customized itinerary; efficient use of time
"We had a week in Buenos Aires and wanted to visit Iguazu, but wanted to see the falls from both countries. All we could find on standardized tours were long 1-day or 3-day options. Riptio Tourismo put together a comprehensive two-day trip that handled everything from transportation to and from our Air BnB, airfare, hotel, and tour guides. A great experience visiting a true world wonder. Highly recommend seeing the falls from both Argentina and Brazil and using this tour company!

Trip to Buenos Aires & Iguazu Falls
"My wife and I booked a cruise from Ushuaia to Santiago. We wanted to tour Buenos Aires and Iguazu Falls but didn't know how to arrange this trip. We contacted Ripio Truismo for help planning this trip and were glad we did. Lucia Rubio helped us through some iterations to plan our trip. All of our transfers were on time with great drivers. The first day in Buenos Area we did a 3 hour walking tour. The 2nd day we did a 4 hour of the city including a wine tasting. In the evening we were treated to a wine and Tango show at La Ventana that was a highlight of our time in Buenos Aires. The next day we flew to Puerto Iguazu, Argentina and stayed at the Panoramic Grand Hotel which is located on a bluff above the Iguazu River - great location. The next day we had a 1/2 day tour of Iguazu Falls from the Brazilian side and then a tour of the Itiapu Dam between Brazil and Paraguay. This is the 2nd largest dam in the world. The next day we had a tour of the Argentinian side of the Falls and then flew back to Buenos Aires to catch our flight to Ushuaia the next morning. Our trip went like clockwork with great tour leaders and drivers. If you want to plan a trip the Buenos Aires, I would recommend using Ripio Truismo.

Fabulous Iguazu Falls tour
