Iguaçu Falls

The construction of the Itaipú Dam (now the world's second largest) in 1975 transformed Foz do Iguaçu into a bustling city with seven times more people than nearby Puerto Iguazú. It’s precisely because of the city's size that many visitors to the falls arrange accommodations in or near Foz do Iguaçu. After daytime adventures in the national park, the city’s nightlife extends the fun. Aside from pubs, clubs, and all kinds of live music, there’s even a samba show.
