    Nice hotel but a little out of town.

    by

    The Bristol Viale hotel is a newly build hotel with very nice rooms and a nice pool area with outdoor serving.
    The staff was very service minded when i was there and were always ready to help.
    The main drawback of the place is that it is a bit out of town, so you either gotta jump a taxi or walk a couple of kilometers if you want to go in to town at night.
    The restaurant at the hotel had a really nice breakfast, but the dinner i had there one night was not the most exciting of my travels.
    The hotel has a very modern architecture and it seems like something Oscar Niemeyer would build.

    Unique Quality: Nice room and very nice pool area aswell as good reception staff.

    Directions: Two kilometers from the town center towards the brazilian side of the falls.

Can someone recommend a cheap hostel in Foz do Iguacu, and how much money and time is needed to...

by lizfairy

see both sides of the falls?

Re:

by monicarc

we spent three days in Iguacu--one day when we arrived, walked around to check things out; 2nd day to see the brazil side--we rode on a power boat under the falls and 3rd day to see the argentina side, walked up very close to the falls.

by newsted1981

I advise you to stay in Puerto Iguazu, in Argentinean side. It's more cozy and cheaper. Foz de Iguazu is bigger city. Besides Argentinean side of the falls is nicer and bigger to see.
You can get a double room with TV, private toilet and breakfast for 26 dollars.

thanks... I have time and would like to stay on both sides though, any cheap hostel recommendations?

Travel Tips for Foz do Iguaçu

Plenty of Shops

by Bwana_Brown

During our roughly one hour in downtown Foz do Iguacu, we wandered in a very small part of the city close to where our tour bus was parked. It seemed to be a pleasant enough area, with very nicely treed streets. However, the traffic was definitely a factor to contend with when wanting to cross a street. It was easy to see that we were now in a city of 270,000 people instead of the 30,000 in sleepy Puerto Iguazu on the Argentine side!

There seemed to be no shortage of nice stores and shops to explore if you had time and knew what you were doing! Neither condition applied to us!

Quite a rush

Visiting the national park, you'll have many different sporting choices. Obviously, you can spend all day hiking around the trails and seeing spectacular views of the falls, but for a slightly different perspective, you can also ride a boat at high speeds directly toward the falls or take a more leisurely pace along the Rio Iguacu. Contact the Macuco Company (045 574 4244) for information. If you want something a little more exhilarating, you can even go repelling off one of the cliffs along the Rio Iguacu near the falls. Contact the tourist information office in town for info on that one.

Parque das Aves

by Jasoninlondon

This Bird Parque is fantastic. There are a number of enclosures simulating various natural environments. You can go in some of these and get up close to the birds. The collection is great with some stunning birds.

I was amazed at how good this was especially as I have never really been interested in birds. But being close to the beautiful Toucan wass a great experience.

The bird park is across the road from the National Park entrance. I would highly recommend you go to the National Park early and finish your day in this park.

The Bird Park (Parque das Aves)

by glabah

Parque das Aves (Park of the Birds = the Bird Park) is a privately owned and operated reserve featuring quite a large number of different bird species. Of particular interest are those that are in danger of extinction. There are several aviaries where people are allowed to walk through.

WATCH FOR FALLING BIRD POOP! if you go into the aviaries. One of our group came inches from having a VERY messy experience.

While the name implies that birds are only featured here, the fact is there are a few other animals among those in the collection, including caiman (slightly different nose bone structure, but looks a lot like an alligator) and butterflies.

The landscape of most of the park is relatively natural forest, though even there a number of the plant species are identified. The walking trails are well maintained and there are a number of restrooms scattered through the facility.

A map of the facility costs extra at the entrance booth.

A nice touch

by acemj

When employees reach fifteen years of emloyment with the hydroelectric plant at Itaipu, they get to plant a tree. This is a nice symbol of Itaipu's commitment to protecting and, in the words, even improving the immediate environment.

Personally, I was more interested in how they built the dam. I've heard you can get a more in-depth tour of the facility that goes into that kind of information, but you have to pretend to be an engineering student or something like that, so I didn't have the energy (pun intended) for making up a story.

Here are some statistics I found in the brochure I picked up at the plant.

The rate of construction at Itaipu was equivalent to a 20 storey building every 55 minutes.

The total volume of concrete used would build 210 stadiums like Maracana (the largest football stadium in the world in Rio de Janeiro).

The total volume of earth and rock excavated to build Itaipu is equivalent to more than twice that of Sugar Loaf Mountain in Rio.

In building the dam enough iron and steel was used to construct 380 Eiffel Towers.

The Itaipu spillway can handle a flow 40 times greater than the average of Iguacu Falls.
