Among the novelties in Foz do Iguaçu, finding out an area that is becoming the hub of adventure sports and tourism was a good surprise. Besides offering several options for the tourists, it is the home of the Falls Half Marathon and important international championships, and will hold the X-Games for the next three years.
The nice thing about traveling to the border is to enjoy a varied and typical cuisine of each country. Even better if it is where Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay meet.
A must-do for all ages, the Bird Park (Parque das Aves) in Foz do Iguaçu is a unique experience. You can see the birds at close quarters, or better yet, get in the huge aviaries and let them come near you.
The second destination that receives foreign tourists in Brazil is also thought to be one of the most multicultural cities in the country, with over seventy-two ethnic groups from all around the globe. There, everyone either came from somewhere else or is a descendant.
One of the tours I most enjoyed on the Brazilian side of the Falls was “Poço Preto Trail”, an ecologist-guided safari with river bathing included. Spirit of adventure is a basic requirement, and you should not be afraid of water so you can make the most of it.
Iguaçu Waterfall, chosen among of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, is a impressive and exciting place. This week the region receives the #BlogTurFoz
Whoever goes to Foz do Iguaçu has the opportunity to visit 3 countries in one day or in three – like I did. When the rivers Iguaçu and Paraná meet it is possible to see the Brazilian, Argentinean and Paraguayan flags, each one in its own country. My main reason for going there was to see the waterfalls and the nature. As we had little time, we chose for a package tour. We set off at PARQUE DAS AVES – really interesting, you can get inside the huge cages, close enough to the animals. And, with (good or bad) luck, they can land on your arms. Most pictures I took from inside the cages.
