Iguazu Falls: An Extraordinary Escape in Brazil & Argentina

Iguazu Falls, or Foz do Iguassu, it’s a collection of 275 waterfalls, across more than two miles between Brazil and Argentina.

Iguazu Falls is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world, and a Unesco World Heritage.

The natural beauty, hundreds of waterfalls and endless rainbows, got us emotional and impressed by this wonder of nature, God’s creation!

If you are planning a trip to Iguazu Falls do not miss the chance to visit:

Parque das Aves:

The largest bird park in Latin America, located outside of the falls on the Brazilian side.  Here they protect birds from animals and traffic, and help them to reproduce.  You will walk inside of a huge cage, and see butterflies, flamingos and other birds, flying all over the place freely.

Experience the Macuco Jetboat safari:

A memorable boat trip, that takes you very close to the falls. Be ready to get soaked. You can find this tour on both sides of the falls.

Visit Itapu Dam:

It was once the largest Dam project in the world, located on the Brazilian side.

Go on a Helicopter Tour:

From the Brazilian side only, you can  experience the waterfalls from a bird’s eyes!







How can you get to the Iguazu Falls National Park?

Fly to the Brazilian town Foz de Iguaçu, or Puerto Iguassu, in Argentina.

To get to one side from the other, you can take a bus or a taxi.

To visit the waterfalls on the Brazilian side, you can buy tickets at the entrance of the park, and a bus will take you to the falls.

To visit the waterfalls on the Argentinian side, you also need to buy the tickets at the entrance of the park, and a little train will take you to the falls.  To move around inside this park, you need to take the same train.








Currency: Brazilian Real / Argentinian Peso.

Official language: Portuguese in Brazil / Spanish in Argentina.

Both languages appear to be similar, but they are completely different.

Obrigada, Gracias!
