Hostelling International Tripbook for

Foz do Iguaçu

6 Entries

Home to the jaw-dropping natural wonder, Iguaçu Falls, the city of Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, attracts tourists year-round for this reason. The falls are comprised of 275 independent falls which have a combined flow capacity three times that of Niagara Falls – together they make the largest series of falls in the world and are an utterly breathtaking sight to behold. The surrounding national park is fed by the cloud spray from the tumbling falls, producing lush forest. Visiting Foz do Iguaçu doesn’t have to mean only leaving your hostel to visit the falls, however. Stop off at Parque das Aves – a bird park which is home to over 800 species of birds and set in 17 hectares of woodland; see Paraguay, Brazil, and Argentina all in the same eye-full at Three Borders Landmark; and take in the sight of Itaipu Dam, the largest electric power generator in the world.
