More than 275 individual falls make up the incredible cascade, and visitors can view them on landings close enough to feel the mist. After taking in the rushing water, hike the jungle trails of Iguazu National Park for the chance to see local wildlife including swallowtail butterflies, toucans and prego monkeys.

After relishing in nature, take a bus or drive across the border to the Argentinean spa resort town of Puerto Iguazu, only 20km northwest of the park. Book a stay at the Iguazu Grand, consistently rated one of Argentina’s top resorts for its spacious rooms, lush grounds and the man-made cascades that dot the property’s three interconnected pools.  

TAM Airlines offers daily flights from Rio to Foz do Iguacu Airport. Renting a car can make the trip between the airport and the falls easier, though the city bus can be taken to the falls for only 2.65 Brazilian reals. Once at the falls, buses run from both the Brazil and Argentinian sides of the park to Puerto Iguazu in Argentina and cost between 30 to 50 Argentinian pesos.
