two diferent views
brasilian side you have more of a panoramic view, while argentinian side you get closer to the falls
The Itaipu Dam
This is the biggest Dam ever built and provides electricity to 80% of Paraguay and to 5% of Brazil (the Southern states), which given the size is quite impressive.
In the park it´s possible to see some wildlife...birds, beautiful butterflies and we saw also this coke lover coati.
After visiting the waterfalls, you can take an elevator from the last platform (it closes at 6.00 pm).
The main attraction of Foz are the Iguazu waterfalls. Iguazu means large water in guarani. There are more than 275 waterfalls and the average height of them are 60 mts.
Of course, visit Cataratas do Iguacu
See Cataratas do Iguacu. I was only able to see the Brazilian side (due to visa requirements for Argentinian side). It was still amazingly beautiful!
A souvenir shop by the falls.
The inevitable souvenir shop for the tourist right by the falls I never go to this places myself,theis picture was taken right outside of one.
