Take a bus to the Iguacu Waterfalls in Brazil!
Backpacking Iguacu Waterfalls
Foz do Iguacu is the second most visited place in Brazil by backpackers after Rio. This is the place to come to see one of the most fascinating sceneries of South America and maybe even the world. The Iguazu waterfall is one of the places you shouldn't skip when backpacking in Brazil. It offers an experience difficult to describe, only comparable to places like the Grand Canyon, the Mexican Cenotes or the Galapagos Islands.
These enormous waterfalls, about four times the size of the Niagara falls (USA), are located in the limit between Argentina and Brazil, and very close to the border with Paraguay. A few kilometers from the waterfalls is Foz de Iguazu, the city close to the Brazilian side of the falls. The city has many hotels and restaurants and is well prepared for tourism. Foz is the base for exploring the falls.
The magic of Iguaçu waterfalls is that they're located in a tropical environment and surrounded by great rainforests. Big trees, beautiful flowers, toucans and others colored birds, small animals and even monkeys can be found in the area allowing a insight into the wild of South America.
Even though most of the waterfalls are found on the Argentinean side, the best views remain from the Brazilian side. It is recommended to visit both sides, with the Brazilian side offering magnificent panoramic views, but to admire them closer and to see the true force of the water you must venture to the Argentinean side. The boat trip on the Argentinean side is a must-do activity which takes you right under the falls. There are also many short walks to smaller cascades, great for photo lovers.
There's an elevator on the Brazilian side that takes you above the falls offering the best view. From there you can see the giant Floriano Fall and the part of the falls where 3 sides of water meet called the Devil´s Throat. If you want even more, then experience the tremendous view from a helicopter trip that takes about 7 to 10 minutes.
Traveling in Brazil is a once in a life experience, and the Iguaçu waterfalls are one of the most spectacular spots on Earth. Backpacking with the Green Toad Bus will take you there to enjoy it, and don´t forget to bring your camera, as everywhere you look makes a great picture!
