Pick-up at Iguaçu airport and transfer to the Hotel San Martin. The hotel features a lush tropical park and swimming pool and is located right next to the Parque das Aves (birds park). During a one-hour walk, more than 150 different species of tropical birds, but also alligators, snakes, butterflies and monkeys, amidst a beautiful natural habitat, can be observed.
Visit of the Brazilian side of the world famous waterfalls. The falls are located within the limits of the Iguaçu National Park, covering 185.262 ha on Brazilian and 67.000 ha on the Argentine side. In 275 cascades the Iguaçu River rushes with an average height of 60 m down the horseshoe-shape canyon over a length of almost two miles, an unforgettable natural spectacle. We suggest: a sightseeing helicopter flight (optional), which gives an even better vision of the overwhelming dimensions of the falls. In the afternoon we take you for a visit to Itaipú, where nature is tamed for the use of man and what is, until today, the world biggest hydro-electric power plant. 14.000 MW are generated here from where power is delivered to Paraguay and wider parts of southern and southwestern Brazil. This gigantic capacity is actually further increased to top the Yangtze Three Gorges Dam in China. For the rest of the day you may want to stroll through the Hotel gardens and enjoy the pool for refreshment.
Today you head for the Argentine side of the cataracts. A mini train rails you through the National Park. A boardwalk leads to the roaring Garganta del Diablo, the devil's gorge. Our suggestion is to do the adventurous and breathtaking raft ride right beneath the falls (optional). Since you have already checked out, you transfer now straight to the airport for flight to Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo.
