Meet a Local Host®

My name is Nuxa. Despite living in Iguassu for over 32 years, I was born in Angola and after the war I moved with my parents to live in a few countries before arriving in this beautiful place at the age of 12. Here, I did most of my studies and earned a Degree in Letters, becoming a teacher but realized that my passion was nature and that's how I became a guide. I feel that I have one of the best jobs in the world because I work in one of the most beautiful places in the world and my clients are people interested in nature and are concerned about the environment and the planet.

Bird Park

Located near the entrance of Iguassu National Park, the Bird Park has more than 300 species of birds and was constructed with the intention of offering ideal breeding conditions for birds. Rare and colorful birds fly in the huge aviaries, which have been built to blend in with the humid subtropical forest. Visitors are able to enter these aviaries and view the birds at close quarters. They will also see alligators, anacondas, pythons, marmosets, and butterflies. At present, the Bird Park is the largest in Latin America and is internationally recognized. It is open daily from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.
