There is only one word to say about the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls, PANORAMIC. Yes, the best panoramic view one will only have from Brazil. One can also see some of the waterfalls that only can be seen from Brazil.
Walking around the Brazil side of the Iguazu Falls
Walking around the trails on the Brazilian side is much easier than walking on the Argentine side of the waterfalls. There is only one trail, one mile long with lots of stairs on the way. In the beginning, from the first lookout, one will be impressed by the amazing panoramic view of the waterfalls in Argentina. Sometimes there are animals on the trail like the coati (Nasua nasua) begging for food. They are nice animals, but our food is not good for them to eat. Is forbidden to feed animals in the park. As one walk, the trails get better and better with different views until one arrives at the bridge. That is the best part, the feeling of the water on the face. Taking marvelous pictures of rainbows circling the waterfalls. After the trail one will approach the foot of some waterfalls for some other spectacular photos. There are two ways to reach the top, by stairs or by lift. One can decide about it according to the size of the line for the lift. As one arrives at the top, there is the grand finale, with some panoramic pictures. That is, it! From the top one walk to the square, from where the buses are departing. At the square, there are choices for food and a cold beer. From the same place buses are departing to the entrance of the National Park.
On the way back there are some optional tours like the boat ride at the falls, the Bird Park and also the helicopter ride over the falls and also the National Park.
(they spell Iguassu with double S and C in Brazil), in Argentina with Z)
