Land of the Waterfalls

A gateway to the world-renowned Iguacu Falls, which spectacularly divide Brazil and Argentina, the modern, high-rise city of Foz do Iguacu can't help but play second fiddle to the natural wonder in its vicinity.

There's much more to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Iguazu Falls, look for gifts at Duty Free Shop Puerto Iguazu, see human ingenuity at work at Itaipu Dam, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Parque das Aves Bird Park.
