Foz do Iguaçu, at the corner of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay is justly famous for the spectacular Iguaçu Falls, where the water can flow up to three times as fast as at Niagara Falls. Iguaçu means “Great Water” in the local Indian language, and national parks surrounding both the Brazilian and Argentinian side of the falls are worth spending the entire day in, especially to take in the feathered splendours of the Parque das Aves (Bird Park) and check out the Itaipu Dam churning out hydroelectric power.

    MUST SEE!

    Whether you come from the Brazilian side or the Argentine...do it! And take time to visit the other side while you're at it.

    Personally, I like coming in from the Argentine side and doing a day trip over to Brazilian territory. But I've done it the other way around too.

    Which is better, you ask? You say potato...

    If you find yourself in Rio or Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires or Salvador de Bahia, you should find a few days to go.

    Beautiful falls and take a boat under the falls. You might want to check on the current water flow to make sure you go while it is at its most spectacular. Also see from the Brazilian side

    Adoro esta cidade!

    As pessoas são gentis e os atrativos naturais são incríveis! O destino é muito conhecido pelas famosas Cataratas do Iguaçu, por ser um importante local de compras e também com vasta riqueza cultural e gastronômica da região.

    O que fazer em Foz?
    Se vier para Foz do Iguaçu, fique no mínimo 3 dias. Assim terá tempo de visitar as Cataratas do Iguaçu e fazer um passeio bem radical pelo Macuco Safari, um bote pelas águas do Rio Paraná, próximo às Cataratas. O custo do passeio é um pouco alto, mas vale a pena.

    Tire um dia para compras no Paraguay. Os preços são muito atraentes, principalmente em eletrônicos. Tome cuidado com os vendedores de rua. Faça uma pesquisa antes de visitar as lojas.

    Em um de suas noites em Foz, faça uma visita à Puerto Iguazu. A cidade faz a fronteira Brasil - Argentina. Lá são encontrados diversos restaurantes, com diversos tipos de pratos, queijos e vinhos.

    A noite em Foz do Iguaçu é bacana. Tem baladas para todos os tipos: sertanejo, dance, disco e rock. Um dos locais que mais gosto é o Zeppelin Old Bar, um bar de rock que tem uma agenda muito legal. O dia mais concorrido no bar é na quinta-feira.

    São muitos atrativos que podem ser visitados. Se tiver um tempo para ir ao Templo Budista vale a pena. Um lugar bem tranquilo e um pouco afastado do centro.

    Recentemente, começaram os saltos de paraquedas em Foz. Para quem tiver coragem fica a dica!

    The best time to visit the Iguazu is in October when it isn’t too hot and the weather is perfect

    Iguaza Falls, a seriously powerful waterfall, sits on the corner of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. While I visited the Brazilian side of the falls, a refreshing mist sprayed my face and awakened my senses. After taking in this incredible scene, I headed over to the Argentinean side of the falls, where I enjoyed a bountiful buffet of meats. Here, the lush jungle surrounds a long stretch of falls, and exotic birds fly overhead, decorating the blue sky. Every corner you turn just gets better and better, which is exactly the way life should be.

    The Brazilian side of Iguazu.There arent as many fanastic views of the Falls from the Brazilian side, but there is a lot more activities here. It kind of turns a natural park into a an amusement park, so to speak. There is bungie jumping into the river and other fun things to do. The main attraction, The Devils Mouth. The view is gorgeous here.

    The Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls is like one side of a coin – you can’t claim to know Iguazu Falls until you have seen both the Brazilian and Argentinian sides. Each offers a unique perspective and not to be missed. We started from the Argentinian side and hired a cab for several hours to go to the Brazilian side – the cab driver waited for about 4 hours while we explored the site and then took us back to Argentina.

    Macuco Safari muy recomendable a pesar de su costo, lo vale. Para comprar el video y/o fotos, en pesos te arrancan la cabeza con el cambio!

    Upon seeing Iguacu, the United States' First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt reportedly exclaimed "Poor Niagara!"

    Iguazu Falls (called Foz do Iguaçu in Portuguese) are divided by various islands into separate waterfalls and its four times the width of Niagara Falls. One of the best known is Devil's Throat, or Gargantua del Diablo with its perpetual spray high over the falls. Other notable falls are the San Martin, Bossetti, and Bernabe Mendez.
