Foz do Iguaçu
Foz do Iguaçu is considered by many to be South America's greatest natural sight. Formed by a succession of 275 interlinking falls up to 246 ft (75 m) in high, cascading over a 1,8 mile (3 km) precipice, shared between Brazil and Argentina, the falls are completely surrounded by nature preserves and national parks, containing one of the largest surviving tracts of Atlantic forest in South America. Raft the waters below the falls, hire a powerboat that skim the waters to the very foot of the falls, practice adventure sports such as hiking, trekking and wood canoeing or go visit the Bird Park or the world’s largest hydroelectric works, the Itaipu Dam. Foz do Iguaçu also offers a great 18-hole golf course.
