Day 16 Iguaçu, Brazil Iguaçu is home to the famous waterfalls which straddle the border between Brazil and Argentina. The Belmond is located near the edge of the falls and is the only hotel within Iguaçu National Park. Your time here is at leisure to relax and enjoy your proximity to this awe-inspiring natural wonder. As most of the falls are on the Argentinian side, the Brazilian side offers spectacular panoramic views as you follow a forest trail down to the canyon. Get close enough to feel the spray on your face and gaze awe-struck as thousands of gallons of water roar over the edge every second. The most thrilling highlight here is the mighty ‘Devil’s Throat’ which you can view from just 200 metres away. For a complete experience of this natural phenomenon we recommend booking excursions to see the falls from both sides as the Argentinian side offers a whole new perspective.

Day 17 Iguaçu Transfer to the airport for your return overnight flight to the UK.
