The municipality of Foz do Iguaçu, in the State of Paraná, is home to an important natural reserve in Brazil and one of the most beautiful natural attractions in the world: the Iguazu Falls, a postcard located on the triple border between Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina.
To get a closer look at this natural spectacle, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, you must visit the Iguaçu National Park (Iguaçu Falls). Giant anteaters, howler monkeys, ocelots and jaguars in danger of extinction, and thousands of butterflies are among the attractions of this park designated as World Heritage, which marks the border between Brazil and Argentina. On foot or by raft, explorers can get to know the 270 waterfalls of the park, especially the stunning Devil's Throat, which gathers 14 waterfalls and produces an "everlasting rainbow in days of good weather.
The waterfalls can reach 90 meters and tourists are enchanted not only with the visual but with the many ways to enjoy it, such as the lookouts, walkways and boats that take the tourist to the waterfall . In the surroundings, there are boat and helicopter tours, hiking and rafting, always with the falls as a backdrop. Part of the reserve belongs to Argentina and it is worth crossing the border to discover the charms on the brothers' side - there is the Devil's Throat, one of the most impressive jumps. The waterfall reaches 700 meters in length.
When to go - The tip is to go from October to March, when the waterfalls have more water, but winter and other times also ensure good photos and a beautiful view of the falls. With easy access to neighboring countries, there are attractions in the region all year round. Enjoy the city tour and discover the rich biodiversity of the Bird Park and the giant Itaipu Hydroelectric Power Plant. Take time to visit the neighboring region, known as a shopping paradise, as in the free shop of Puerto Iguazú in Argentina, and the commerce of Ciudad del Este, just after the Bridge of Friendship in Paraguay. Items such as perfumes and beverages are priced at prices and can be purchased in dollars or real.
Gastronomia - With so much water in the surroundings, the typical cuisine of the region could only be fish-based. One of the most famous options is the Pirá de Foz, prepared with the tasty golden and surubim, abundant in the river Paraná. The characteristic dish of the city is basically made of cassava and surubim or golden meat, two species of fish very found in the Paraná River. The appearance of the food also reveals the Indian influence in the local cuisine, because "pirá", in the Guarani language, means fish and cassava was what could not be lacking in the food of the Indians.
