This tree museum, or at least I think that's what it is, is a little strange to visit, but it's interesting to learn about the forestry of the region nonetheless. Make sure to grab some flower and yerba mate-flavored ice cream.

A very interesting look into the preservation of flora and fauna of the jungle. The structures built with hundreds of years old tree trunks are incredible. You can fit a little house inside.

Nice place to visit, really cool buildings and fairly inexpensive. Best of all, lots of little souvenirs at actually quite affordable prices. We bought a lot of cool stuff here for ourselves and as gifts!
