Foz do Iguaçu
Foz do Iguaçu (Foss doe Ee-gwa-sue), as it is called in Portuguese, is a small city and also an enormous waterfall. In English, it is called Iguaçu Falls (Ee-gwa-sue falls).
This semicircular waterfall is almost 3km wide, averages approximately 80 meters in height and has a water flow capacity more than three times that of Niagara Falls. It is truly one of the wonders of the natural world.
The area is also very interesting because it is located at the intersection of three countries; Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. So, in a small amount of time, much can be seen and done which makes Iguaçu Falls very popular with travelers.
The city of Iguaçu Falls is located in the Brazilian part of this trisection. Directly west is Ciudad de Este, in Paraguay. The waterfall is just a bit south of the cities and is divided between Brazil and Argentina. So, in one trip, you can see one of the most amazing natural spectacles of the world and visit three cities in three different countries.
There are shuttles, vans, and taxis that take visitors from their hotel to the waterfall. Also, cars can be rented at the Iguaçu Falls Bus Station.
While searching for a bus ticket, it is important to pay attention to the bus stations.
Some destinations only have routes to one bus station and others more than one station. Depending on where you will stay in the city, it can make a difference in time and price if you have a choice in bus stations. Here is a brief summary of each station:
The Iguaçu Falls Bus Station has several intercity, interstate and international lines, driven by 18 different bus companies. The bus station is located a few meters from hotels, inns and resorts in town and you can rent a car within the complex itself to reach your desired destination.
