Foz do Iguaçu city tour and triple frontier visit

Explore the fascinating city of Foz do Iguaçu and then visit the ‘triple frontier’ where Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay all meet, and where the Parana and Iguazu rivers merge. As a busy border outpost and the main destination for visiting the Iguazu Falls, Foz do Iguaçu is a hive of activity and its ‘organised chaos’ is considered by many to be one of the quintessential Brazilian experiences. Downtown Foz do Iguaçu is just 28km away from the falls and is packed with attractions, including a Catholic cathedral, a magnificent mosque with two minarets and a Buddhist temple with more than 110 statues of the Lord Buddha – all symbols of the multicultural nature of this bustling city. Make the short 6km trek from the city centre to the triple frontier, where the River Iguazu flows into the Parana. The three corners have monuments marking each territory: Brazil and Argentina each have an obelisk patriotically painted in the colours of the national flags while Paraguay has a tiled Art Deco-inspired rectangle. Since 1903, there has been a visitor centre in the Brazilian side and you can learn here more about the region, which archaeological investigations show to have been inhabited for at least 6,000 years. The first European visitor was Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca, who happened upon the land inhabited by the Caingangue people in 1540, three years after he ended a decade wandering what’s now the United States following a shipwreck.
