Iguazu Falls - Brazilian side

iguazu brazil side
A popular saying states that, in the Iguazu Falls show, the stage is on the Argentine side while the Brazilian side has the privileged audience.

Without doubt, the panoramic view of the Falls obtained from the Brazilian side is excellent. From the viewpoints and catwalks of Parque Nacional do Iguacu you can see a view of almost all the waterfalls, besides an impressive approach to the Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat).

From the Brazilian side there is a single one-way catwalk that can be walked without difficulty. This ends in the viewpoint of the Garganta del Diablo, and you can then access the parking lot and bus stop by an panoramic lift.

Useful tips:

Falls on the Brazilian side are located 28 km. from the city of Foz do Iguacu, from where you can reach the Park with your own transportation, private tours or public buses (which have many frequencies per hour).

You will access the park through the Visitor Centre located outside the reserve with 108,000 m2 of land, a 4,000 m2 building and a 50,000 m2 parking with a capacity for 170 buses and 20,676 vans and small vehicles. The Visitors Center has two platforms (internal and external) for ascent and descent of visitors.

Visitors are then transported to the park in modern panoramic double deck buses (8 with a capacity of 72 passengers). The top of the busses is open to allow visitors a greater interaction with the environment and a wider view of the fauna and flora along the route to the Iguazu Falls.
