The green and yellow obelisk of Marco Das Tres Fronteiras on the lookout platform signifies the place where you can see three markers designating the exact point where Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay meet. The trail to this equilateral triangle is about 2,000 m (6,650 ft) long, surrounded by pine and guava, as well as locals who may try to stop you to sell you something or beg for money. You'll find a cafeteria, craft shop, and a gazebo where you can observe the three countries, and the confluence where the Iguazú flows into the Paraná River.

  • The view was excellent but it was extremely crowded and the options for food and drink were not sufficient for the amount of people there. Great kids area though!

  • I had been at the 3 frontiers area a few years ago and All I had was a monument that still there but now you have a simple show about the history of the place. A few folk dances of Brazil, Argentina.....  more

  • Very very beautiful and attractive place. This is also an historical place for Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. There are monuments, presentations with dance and figure art which are unique for the history of these countries. Very worthy for the price and I'll really return and enjoy this again. As a complement, there are specific native foods from the 3 Countries available to buy. There is also a restaurant with a very nice food for a very good price (reservations have to be made prior, don't forget this!) - the sunset 🌇 is one of the most beautiful views I've seen!!
  • A good place to visit at night time. Wonderful performances by representatives of the 3 nations. A must visit. Only issue we had was getting a taxi back to the hotel. It gets very busy especially when everyone is leaving between 8.30 and 9pm. Our cellular network also switched to roaming which meant we could not call an uber. Nevertheless we got a taxi after some patience.
