One of the most thrilling experiences you can have is the macuco safari that will take you by high-speed jetboat up the Iguassu River to within a few meters (and sometimes right under) the base of the Falls. Guaranteed - you will get drenched!Scott Dunn team
Belmond Hotel das Cataratas is a grand colonial-style hotel, a 2-minute stroll away from the awe-inspiring Iguassu Falls and the only hotel in the Brazilian National Park. Choose from one of 193 colorful rooms and 15 suites that combine original, local artwork with all the usual modern touches one would expect in a luxury hotel. There are two restaurants, the Ipe Bar & Grill alongside the pool and the Restaurant Itapu both serving delicious local and international cuisine.
Guests at the hotel enjoy exclusive access to the 275 falls (depending on the time of year) that are over 3km wide and 80m high and lie at the border of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. Although the falls are mostly in Argentina, the views from the Brazilian side are all encompassing and spectacular. Stroll along the catwalks and marvel at the power and splendour of these vast waterfalls twice the size of Niagara, go on a nature expedition with one of the hotel's in-house biologists or see it all from the sky on one of their helicopter tours.
At the end of a day's exploring the most impressive waterfall system in the world, cool off in the hotel's swimming pool, play a game of tennis or sip at a caipirinha in bar Taroba.
