“Definitely a highlight at Iguazu”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

The falls are astounding. No argument there. But at the other end of the scale, good things come in small packages. I am not a birder and don't know the names of the different species, but I love to watch hummingbirds. For anyone who enjoys birds and nature you will not want to miss this experience. I wish I had known about being able to hold a feeder and have birds land on my outstretched fingers (!) But even just soaking up the beauty of being in this peaceful place was good for the soul at the end of a hectic trip. I enjoyed the challenge of trying to photograph the birds in flight. One hour flew by. I should have allowed two ... and worn some mozzie repellant :) 20 pesos well spent.

“Close encounters with humming birds”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

This little private garden is a short walk from the centre of Puerto Iguazu and is a wonderful experience even for those not particularly interested in birds. Being allowed to hold a feeder in the palm of your hand gives an up close encounter with birds landing on outstretched fingers. This is enhanced by the knowledge these are wild birds attracted over a period of 20 years.
In addition to humming birds we saw Euphonia, Dacnis, Ground doves and Bananquit. I'm sure proper birders could identify many more.
20 Peso well spent!

“Peaceful and Beautiful”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We visited the Hummingbird Garden in July, 2013. What a lovely place to spend an hour. Once you enter the gate, you are treated to hummingbirds zipping everywhere around the yard. The yard itself is beautiful, with lots of flowers and vines and feeders. Birders and children of all ages will be fascinated by this.

“Hummingbird paradise”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

If you are around Iguazú and you love birds and nature, Jardin de los Picaflores is the place you should go. You will see almost every hummingbird species recorded in Misiones, along with others. The owners are extremely kind and helpfull.
