During your stay, you cannot miss a tour to the amazing Iguacu Waterfalls, located in the Iguacu National Park, a remarkable nature spot with beautiful landscapes from the side of Argentina and Brazil. The best way to visit this wonder of nature is to book a tour in Foz do Iguaçu (Brazil side) or Puerto Iguacu (Argentina side), because they can tell you the best spots, guarantee the transport between Brazil and Argentina, and facilitate the pass trough the border every day between these two countries (to visit the best spots, take a three-day tour). During this tour you will have the chance to visit the “Garganta do Diabo” (translation: Devil's Throat), the biggest waterfall in Iguacu at ninety-seven meters high; cross the walking trail to see a lot of waterfalls (a perfect contrast with the green of the forest and the white of the water); and make a boat trip that puts you under a waterfall (expect to get really wet) –- an amazing experience that you will love.

There are a lot of hostels in Foz do Iguaçu, you just need to choose the one that fits your preferences. Foz do Iguaçu's hostels are small places, and most times are family businesses so expect simple but good facilities with friendly people (Brazilian people are recognized for it) and most of all, you can do it on a budget.
