Iguazu Falls, Foz do Iguacu

4.9
#1 of 816 in Things to do in State of Parana
From miles away, you'll see mist rising up as the water from Iguazu Falls plunges a height of up to 90 m (295 ft). This total of 275 waterfalls form the largest chain of waterfalls around the globe. To minimize damage to the National Park's environment, you'll board a colorful bus to access the park and view the falls. An elevator allows you to descend to the lower falls where the water meets the pools. Walkways extend out over the falls to viewing platforms overlooking Devil's Throat, with picturesque panoramas all the way to Argentina on a clear day. As you climb a little bit closer to the falls, you'll feel the mist cooling your skin and see butterflies fluttering around the colorful rainbow illusions created by falling water.

    The panoramic view of the grandeur of the falls, not to be missed! Great structure and easy access by public transport (line 120). Ahead has the bird park.

    I was in Foz do Iguacu in late July with my wife and we went to visit the falls. Too crowded because it's vacation, but very fast, the bus went every 15 minutes, tops. The trail was too with a lot of people, but all respected and were patients. I believe it is the wonderful view. At the end, when if follows over some waterfalls the dazzle is immense, fantastic and exciting.

    Absolutely amazing place the size and scope of this place is beyond anything I've seen before. The different view points are great in that you can stand above the falls or at the middle or bottom and quite close. Really different experience. Physically not really a challenge either.

    Lovely,lovely place. We were on the Argentine side. The sound of the water combines with the most that sprays you as you get closer. Total sensory experience as you watch all that water tumble!

    Really beautiful place to visit. Everything is in English or Portuguese languages. Different routes to walk and see the beauty of the nature. Only thing what annoyed me was the price of the special services(boat rides etc) compared to the price range in general. But still highly recommended place to visit

Where to stay in Foz do Iguacu

Given the one dominant attraction in Foz do Iguacu, it's not surprising that the vast majority of accommodations sit on the south side of town, on the way to the waterfalls. To get as close as possible to the falls, stay in the southern neighborhoods of Jardim Eldorado or Jardim Iguacu. Many of the hotels in those neighborhoods line Avenue das Cataratas, the road that leads all the way to the falls. To get a better feel for the rest of the city, stay in the city center or its next-door neighborhood, Vila Paraguaia. From your hotel near the Parana River, you'll enjoy views over the neighboring city of Ciudad del Este in Paraguay.
