Brazil: Iguazu Falls – Brazilian side

Visit Us

Straddling the border between northeast Argentina and southern Brazil, the Iguazú Falls (spelt Iguaçú in Brazil) are usually rated number one of the big three waterfalls, the others being Niagara and Victoria. They are often considered to be Latin America’s most awe-inspiring natural sight and a must-see for anyone visiting the highlights of the continent, not least for their setting amidst subtropical rainforest alive with birds and butterflies.

There are about 3km of panoramic walkways on the Brazilian side, and close by is the Parque das Aves, among the best bird sanctuaries in South America. Helicopter rides can be taken over the falls, or you can opt for a thrilling boat safari. Argentina’s side of the falls has an even more comprehensive set of walkways, culminating in the magnificent boardwalk to the Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat).

Exploring the national park by boat or jeep, getting up close to the tropical vegetation, spotting toucans and parakeets and maybe the odd monkey swinging through the trees.

The sight of the huge turbines on a guided visit to Itaipú dam. Paraguay only needs the output of one and a half of them to provide all the electricity it needs.
