Itinerary Map
Day 1: Campo Grande / Sao Paulo / Foz do Iguacu, Brazil
On the final day of your Brazil adventure, take a late morning flight from Campo Grande to Sao Paulo, then transfer by air to Foz do Iguacu and continue to Hotel das Cataratas, arriving by late afternoon. This grand Portuguese colonial-style property is located just a few hundred yards from Iguazu Falls and is the only accommodation inside Iguazu National Park. The hotel grounds feature lavish gardens filled with orchids nourished by spray from the nearby falls. The name Iguazu comes from a local Guarani word meaning "great water," an apt description for the 275 waterfalls that pour into this horseshoe-shaped canyon along a 2-mile stretch of the Iguazu River. The noise alone is astounding, but the vistas are even more impressive. Suspended catwalks along the canyon rim offer different vantage points over the cataract. At the end of the trail lies Devil’s Throat, the thundering maw at the heart of the main falls. This is the most dramatic section of the falls, where 14 separate waterfalls plunge 350 feet into the canyon, creating a perpetual plume of rainbow-accented spray. The falls are surrounded by Atlantic rain forest, one of the most threatened global conservation priorities. Explore on your own on arrival, then enjoy a relaxing evening with dinner included at the hotel.

Day 2: Full-Day Tour of the Argentinian Falls
Meet your guide and cross the Tancredo Neves Bridge for a day-long exploration of the falls from the Argentina side. Our tour begins at the national park visitor UNESCO World Heritage Sitecenter, with interpretive displays explaining the exceptional biodiversity found in this subtropical humid forest. While the falls are the centerpiece of any visit, the national park—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—is full of other wonders, too. Located just across the border from Brazil, Argentina's Iguazu National Park covers 167,000 acres, protecting one of the most biodiverse areas in the country. The Paranaense subtropical rain forest, a continuation of the southern Brazilian jungle, is a nearly virgin preserve that holds more than 2,100 known plant species. Within its verdant depths we find pindo palms, gigantic trees, 50-foot-high tall canes, arborescent ferns, orchids and huge bromeliads called caraguata. Looking up, we may spy toucans and harpy eagles among the many bird species in the forest. The park also shelters mammals like tapir, coati, tirica, anteater and rarely seen wild cats. To reach the catwalks overlooking the falls, we board a train to the Upper Falls Circuit. Here, a guided walk over the Upper Iguazu River leads to balconies that offer a thrilling panorama of Devil's Throat, the thundering maw at the heart of the main falls. This is the most dramatic section of the cataract, where 14 separate waterfalls plunge 350 feet into the canyon, creating a perpetual plume of rainbow-accented spray. This evening, cross back over the border into Brazil to return to Hotel das Cataratas. 

Day 3: Foz do Iguacu / Depart 

After an early breakfast, join your guide for a guided tour of the Brazilian side of the falls. After lunch at the hotel, a transfer to the airport is included to meet your flight to Sao Paulo or Rio de Janeiro, where you will connect with your international flight.
