Iguazu Falls, Foz do Iguacu

4.9
Must see · World heritage site · Waterfall · Nature / Park
From miles away, you'll see mist rising up as the water from Iguazu Falls plunges a height of up to 90 m (295 ft). This total of 275 waterfalls form the largest chain of waterfalls around the globe. To minimize damage to the National Park's environment, you'll board a colorful bus to access the park and view the falls. An elevator allows you to descend to the lower falls where the water meets the pools. Walkways extend out over the falls to viewing platforms overlooking Devil's Throat, with picturesque panoramas all the way to Argentina on a clear day. As you climb a little bit closer to the falls, you'll feel the mist cooling your skin and see butterflies fluttering around the colorful rainbow illusions created by falling water. Use our Foz do Iguacu route maker website to add Iguazu Falls and other attractions to your Foz do Iguacu vacation plans.

  • Absolutely breathtaking. While it did rain during our visit, it stopped within about 30 minutes, and we were able to resume our tour. There were some options that were unavailable thanks to Covid...  more »
  • Magical place to stay. Mata Atlântica Forest, plenty os life. Hundreds of different birds, marsupial, rabbits etc. but, the Waterfall is a special show.  more »

  • The lookout platform is perched proper over this amazingly effective, concentrated torrent of water, a deafening cascade plunging to an invisible vacation spot; vapors soaking the viewer blur the base of the falls and upward thrust in a smoke-like plume that can be visible several kilometers away. This is amazing natural place.
  • This is an amazing natural place, the views from both sides (Argentina and Brazil) are amazing. For Brazilian side you can take around 4 or 5 hours and enjoy everything, from Argentina side I would recommend a full day and comfortable clothes for the tour
