Iguazu Falls, Foz do Iguacu

#1 of 3,295 in Parks in Brazil
Dam Waterfall
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.

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.

  • This is quite a relaxed way to see the falls and we found it less crowded than the Argentinian side, although our guide had strongly reommended an early start. There are good footpaths(even a lift) wh...  more »
  • The Brazil side gives you spectacular views where the Argentine side lets you live it. Do both. The Brazil side lets you experience the falls without much walking if you don't want to hike. The Argent...  more »
  • The previous reviews and the many pictures available on the internet say it all! Fantastic place to visit. The Argentinian side of the falls are by far the largest but don't necessarily have the best ...  more »

  • 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
  • A great day spent at the falls. I recommend the Argentinian side, more trails and more viewing options! Enjoy!
  • Amazing place. The pictures don't do it justice. Take your time to walk along all of the trails and remember you're going to get extremely wet.
  • Amazing place. Never saw something like this. Very good infrastructure, nice staff. The price for foreigners are much higher than for Brazilians
  • Wonderful place to visit on a sunny day. Amazing waterfalls. Do the adventure experience where you get to go under the falls with a jet boat, good fun.
