The Falls consist of 275 waterfalls cascading over a precipice into the Paranį river. They are produced by waters of the Iguassuµ River, the source of which is near Curitiba. We'll go on a guided tour of the Falls from the Brazilian side. Exotic birds and butterflies can be seen at close range in the verdant araucaria evergreen forest.

Optional tours include taking the Macuco, a boat ride through the waterfalls, or a helicopter flight over the Falls, an exhilarating event. You may also want to cross the border to Argentina; the flora and fauna are best observed on the Argentine side. If interested, you can go to see Itaipu, the world's largest hydroelectricity plant. The plant, on which construction began in the early '70s, is considered a multibillion dollar fiasco, but a very impressive one nonetheless. Buses depart hourly for free guided tours of the plant, which are fascinating.
