Reasons to Visit

Iguassu Falls

Arguably one of the world's greatest natural wonders and one of South America's most extraordinary sights. As one of the "big three" waterfalls, Iguassu has both a greater drop than Niagara and a larger total width than Victoria. The name Iguassu comes from the Guarani Indian word meaning 'great waters'. The largest waterfall is the Devils Throat or Garganta del Diablo in Spanish, where a special platform just a few meters from the edge offers a magical vantage point to watch the huge quantity of water drop 80 meters and crash down in spectacle of thundering mist. .

It is best to experience the falls on both sides, to see the falls from different vantage points. On the Brazilian side, a trail runs along the top of the deep canyon formed by the Iguassu river below the falls. You have numerous vantage points to stop, admire the waterfalls and take pictures.

The whole area is a National Park surrounded by dense forest where you can experience the local flora and fauna. In addition, there are the Macuco boat trips on the river to watch the waterfalls from below, which get very wet. You may also wish to take a 15 minute helicopter ride over the whole area for a superb view of the river and the waterfalls.
