Among the novelties in Foz do Iguaçu, finding out an area that is becoming the hub of adventure sports and tourism was a good surprise. Besides offering several options for the tourists, it is the home of the Falls Half Marathon and important international championships, and will hold the X-Games for the next three years.

A must-do for all ages, the Bird Park (Parque das Aves) in Foz do Iguaçu is a unique experience. You can see the birds at close quarters, or better yet, get in the huge aviaries and let them come near you.

The second destination that receives foreign tourists in Brazil is also thought to be one of the most multicultural cities in the country, with over seventy-two ethnic groups from all around the globe. There, everyone either came from somewhere else or is a descendant.

One of the tours I most enjoyed on the Brazilian side of the Falls was “Poço Preto Trail”, an ecologist-guided safari with river bathing included. Spirit of adventure is a basic requirement, and you should not be afraid of water so you can make the most of it.
