Iguacua Falls Holidays: an Overview

A tour of the Iguaçu Falls, on the border between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, is an unforgettable spectacle. Meandering 400 miles west from its source in the coastal mountains of Paraná and Santa Catarina, the Rio Iguaçu finally widens and falls over an area one mile wide, thundering 240ft down to the river below. Iguaçu is wider than Victoria Falls, higher than Niagara and, in the opinion of most people who visit, more beautiful than either.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Many Brazilians venture across to the Paraguayan town of Ciudad del Este to shop for cheap electronic goods. This gives rise to the rather strange sight of South American families, soaking in the spray of the Falls, lugging vast plasma screen televisions across the catwalks of Iguaçu.

Original Highlight

Stay in the national park itself, at Hotel das Cataratas. Once the gates close and the masses depart, the guests have the falls all to themselves. On full moons, the hotel even arranges moonlit tours along the walkways – a truly magical experience

A note on price

Brazil is the most expensive country in South America to visit. Unfortunately, it doesn’t represent great value for money – but it’s still one of our absolute favourites. A two week itinerary starts from £3,500 per person including flights – but if you’re hoping to cover a lot of ground, expect to pay a lot more. Learn more about our pricing
