Refugio Tati Yupi reviews
The entrance to the park is FREE OF CHARGE, but you cannot simply arrive and enter. If you simply want to visit for one day then you can obtain a permit at the Itaipu Binacional Centro de Recepcion.... more »
Beautiful peaceful place. The place has a lot of potential it need better infrastructure and more information of what the place really is about the park trooper didn't really tell us much. You should bring drinks and food if you want to spend the day there.
This place is pretty cool. There is horse back riding (horse is guided by a guy walking around with a lead), tractor ride through the forest and to a lookout tower, and places for BBQ and camping. All of it is free! Just be sure to get a pass to enter at the zoo about 5 km away.
