See the day-by-day program & hotel selection below:

DAY 1 - Arriving Brazil & Iguazu Falls

Upon arrival at the airport in Iguassu Falls, a bilingual guide will be waiting inside the terminal, showing a sign with your name. Transfer to the hotel and check-in. For the first night in Iguassu Falls we suggest a barbecue dinner with Latin American folkloric show (not included, but we can include this service). As Iguassu Falls is the Brazilian border with other two countries, Argentina and Paraguay, you will have the opportunity to get in contact with the music and dance of these other cultures as well.

DAY 2 - The biggest & most beautiful waterfalls on planet..!

After breakfast we will go to the Iguassu National Park and visit the waterfalls from the Brazilian side. From this side we will have the most beautiful panorama view of the falls, perfect for photos. There are several footbridges that take us to different places within the park; we will also be able to observe the wild life in the rain forest. By midday we will have lunch at the charming restaurant Porto Canoas, beside the falls. In the afternoon, we suggest an optional tour (not included), experience the best and most emotional tour, the “Macuco Safari Tour”. The tour starts by jeep through the rain forest until the edge of the river. Then go by boat in the direction of the falls, approaching them; it’s like a great rafting.

In the afternoon (it time left) we suggest go to the Itaipu dam (not included), the world’s biggest hydro electric power station. To have an idea of the size of the dam - they used a volume of reinforcing iron, that could build 320 Eiffel Towers and the wall is 200m high, equivalent a building of 65 floors. Instead of a visit to the dam, we also recommend a visit to the beautiful Tropical Bird Park (not included), where it’s possible to see many species of Brazilian birds. It is a very nice option, especially for families with children that will enjoy taking photos with parrots on your shoulder. The evening is set for free activities at the hotel, maybe a visit to the casino on the Argentinean side (not included).

DAY 3 - Visit of the waterfalls from the Argentinean side

After breakfast, a visit to the falls on the Argentinean side as well. During this visit, we will first take a small train to reach the delta of the river (above the falls) then we walk on footbridges to really come close the falls. We walk just behind the 2,7km wide and 80m high falls. The best spot might be at the “devils jaw”, where we look down into the deep jaw and get wet when the jaw “sneeze” waters 100m up in the sky. Before returning to the hotel on the Brazilian side, we have lunch at the restaurant “La Selva” within the Argentinean National Park. The evening is set for free activities.
