How to enjoy Iguassu National Park

Best known for one of the world’s most spectacular, crescent-moon waterfalls, the Iguassu National Park is a stunning World Heritage site spanning the border between Brazil and Argentina

  • Charter a helicopter for unrivalled views of the 1.5 mile wide cascade and for a bird’s eye view of the point where Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay meet
  • For a rare and precious experience, take a walking tour of the Iguassu Falls during a full moon for the ethereal beauty of a full moon rainbow
  • Get up close and personal with a boat ride into the mist. Tip: you will get wet, very very wet

Iguassu is one of those places that no matter how many times you visit, you can’t fail to be awed by the sheer power and beauty of nature. The Falls themselves stretch for a mile and a half and comprise literally hundreds of cascades, with names like Devil’s Throat and the Three Musketeers. Tumbling for more than 260 feet, they roar, sparkle in the sun and throw up soft clouds of mist that in turn create multiple vivid rainbows.

The Park provides plenty of opportunity for exploration and adventure. Eco-tours head into the lush subtropical jungle, home to coatis, swallows and brightly-colored butterflies. Your need for an adrenaline fix will be more than sated with the opportunities for white water rafting and rappelling down the side of the Falls. Yes, that is descending the face of the Falls, suspended by nothing more than a rope. Enough said on the matter.
