Parque Nacional Foz do Iguaçu (Brazil)

The Brazilian National Park was founded in 1939 and declared a World Heritage Site in 1986. The park covers 170,086 ha, extending along the north bank of the Rio Iguaçu, sweeping northwards to Santa Tereza do Oeste on the BR-277. The experience is less impressive than on the Argentine side since you are not immersed in the jungle, and can't get close to the falls but it's interesting to see the whole panorama from a distance. For more information on the park, see www.cataratasdo iguacu.com.br (in English).
