The Iguaçu Falls, the great attraction of Foz, was acclaimed as one of the new seven wonders of nature. And for a good reason: the spectacle of its 270 waterfalls, of nearly 3 km, enchants the world.
Located on the border of Brazil and Argentina, it is on the Brazilian side that the waterfalls reveal all of their splendor. A 1,200-meter footbridge takes the visitor to absolutely fantastic views. For the daring ones, the raft of the Macuco Safari takes visitors very close to the fall of the Garganta do Diabo and helicopter flights offer a stupendous view, to be filmed and photographed from all angles.
At Parque das Aves, a true sanctuary for over 900 birds of 150 species, a spectacle of colors and sounds in nature.
Besides all natural beauty, a giant manmade work can be admired in Foz do Iguaçu. The Usina Hidrelétrica de Itaipu, the largest power generator in the world, opens its doors to the visitor to discover its majestic concrete ‘cathedrals’, to feel the steady pulse of machines and go through almost 1,000 meters of Estação Galeria to get to the huge turbines and see them in full work.
