Then, go to the principal and most known tour in Foz do Iguaçu: the Iguazu Falls, that is next to the Birds’ Park. Considered one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, the attraction has over 270 waterfalls and regular flow rate of more than 1,5 billion of liters per second that bring up a gorgeous view.
The conventional tour includes a light trail a bit longer than 1 km and, at the end, a catwalk takes you until the famous Devil’s Throat (Garganta do Diabo, in Portuguese). It is also possible to do the Macuco Safari Tour that, on an inflatable boat, takes the visitants until under the waters of the Iguazu Falls.
Finally, finish the day with a tour full of adventure: skydiving. With an amazing view of the Itaipu dam, the sunset hour is one of the best to jump with a parachute, turning into an even more beautiful landscape.,
The skydiving also depends on the weather conditions. So, if you can’t do it in the first day, you still have enough time to reschedule the tour and don’t miss the opportunity!
