What can we say? One of the seven natural wonders of the world and rightly so.
Set in subtropical rainforest full of birds and butterflies and bordering Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, these immense waterfalls are an unforgettable sight.
The river originates in Brazil before fanning over the rocky plateau and plunging over countless cascades. The falls should be seen from both the Argentine and Brazilian sides, our guides can show you around some of the many trails. Feel the spray on your face standing on the walkway in front of the famous colossal Devil’s Throat or get really wet on one of our boat trips underneath the falls. How about seeing the falls from up above in a helicopter ride?
There are many places to stay but our favourite has to be the Das Cataratas located directly next to the falls. Long after the crowds have gone you can have the privilege of the Iguaçu Falls all to yourself, almost. Take an early morning walk to see the falls in its best light.
For something a little different, why not have a few days in the jungle lodges outside Iguaçu: great for wildlife and relaxation. Or try a visit to the lesser visited Jesuit missions for a little history.
