Lake Itaipu, Foz do Iguacu

4.2
A great spot for fishing, Lake Itaipu is an expansive manmade lake that was formed with the building of the Itaipu Dam. The best way to find the right fishing spot is to rent or charter a boat. You can also relax along the lake’s shores as a quieter alternative to the seacoast. The dam itself is a mammoth example of human industry and it’s worth seeking it out for photos.

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.
