Iguazu Falls, Foz do Iguacu
(4.9/5 based on 28,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I was here the first time in 89, in adolescence. Returned other 7, with friends, newlyweds, with my Father and now with my children. Each time the feeling is wonderful. I will return again. I daresay this is the best trip I know in Brazil. Services for tourism in Foz are good and with great prices and excellent customer service. The structure of the Park is first-rate. Always recommend!!!

  • Very good infrastructure, better even than the Argentine side. Very good complement to the natural, the panoramic micro etc. Beautiful views in an incredible environment. I highly recommend it.

  • The most impressive falls I have ever seen. They are just... magnificent. Perfect. The Brazilian side has very nice views, and some short, accessible and fun trails to get close to the water. Every human being should go there at least once in their life. The city does not have a lot of places to go, though, so 3 days are more than enough.
  • The argentinian side is where you can go really close to the devil's throat. You can in fact realize how strong the water is and how magnificent is this place. Definitely a must go.
  • Nothing is left to be written... ok some first hand tips in that case... For best experience visit first the Brazilian side and do the one on the Argentine the next day. Take the train to the devil's in the end for ultimate culmination this fantastic outing to one of the most beautiful place on the face of the earth.
  • Breathtaking sight. A once in a lifetime experience I would recommend to anyone and everyone. It is impressive beyond words!
  • Magnificent...the greatest waterfalls I have seen. Better from the Argentine side. Take the boat into the falls too..
