Brazil is a place that is really worth visiting and you will undoubtedly have a great experience.
Did you know that it is so big that all the countries in Europe fit in it? It is so big that you can visit many different places and in general it is better to fly from one place to another, since the distances are very great.
Of course, don't forget your swimsuit as it has beautiful beaches, where you can enjoy crystal-clear waters and stunning landscapes.
My chosen destinations were Rio de Janeiro and Iguazú, a very good choice, whenever I travel I prefer to enjoy each place well and not spend too much time in airports and travel, obviously it is a matter of taste.
Iguazú is undoubtedly a destination that you cannot miss, it is considered one of the seven wonders of the world and well the images speak for themselves, you can visit them from the Brazilian side and from Argentina.
Since we arrived at the airport we got a taxi that transported us the entire time and it was a very good option since the tours take a long time picking up and dropping off passengers.
To visit the falls from Brazil it will take you half a day, you can arrive by tour (in my hotel it cost 30 dollars per person) or in a taxi that will charge you more or less 70 dollars round trip (agree on a discounted price because by meter it will be much more) and it will be a good option to not be subject to tours, it is a beautiful view and from Brazil there is a very large and very beautiful panoramic view, you can take a boat ride, however, since the infrastructure is built you will arrive very close to the falls without having to be on a boat, it is a fun experience if you have a good budget, but not very essential.
The food I found in both parks seemed very average to me, it is a good idea to bring a Sandwich or the snack of your choice, bring a good raincoat or you can buy a simple one at the entrance, also always carry a change of clothes, since you are always going to end up very wet even if you have a raincoat.
The Itaipu Dam can be a good option if you have a lot of time in Foz de Iguazú, it costs less than 20 dollars to enter. Although really the most relevant thing is to go from the Brazilian side and from Argentina to the falls.
From the Argentina side it is a walk that you cannot miss, it is much more impressive and it is a full day walk, on very busy days there can be a long line at immigration so it is recommended to get up early, also try to do both visits on days that they are not weekends, since they are very full.
In Argentina there are three paths, the Devil's Throat, the upper path of 2.5 km and the lower path of 1.7 km, all three are worth doing and it is a walk that will take you almost all day. They are beautiful hikes with the falls next to them and the paths are super close to the falls.
After leaving the park we went to a park where you can see the three borders of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, the park is simple but very cool and you can see the three countries, then we went to eat a Churrasco from the Argentina side, delicious! Definitely a very good plan!
- Do not change your dollars at the airport, near the hotel you will surely find where to do it and check that they are giving you a good rate.
- Be sure to try the feijoada, acaí, Pão de queijo (pandebonos for us), churrasco and of course the caipirinhas.
- From Colombia you can find flights from 800,000 to Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, through desparar.com.co or avianca.com.co , you should be aware of promotions and choose times that are not high season as much as possible, generally the flight costs 1,800,000 from Colombia approximately, but in promotion you can get less than half and after Rio we took a flight to Foz de Iguazu for approximately 100 dollars through latam.com .
- Bring a converter because it works like Europe
