Waking up with the sound of waterfalls outside your window. Watching the sunset over Iguassu National Park with a Caipirinha in hand, surrounded by the lush rainforest. Lazy days lounging beneath sub-tropical palms, reflecting on the day's adventure.
Best Visiting Months
April to June is the dry season. December to March is the hottest season.
The obvious reason for staying at the Belmond Hotel das Cataratas is being located directly across from the majestic Iguassu Falls inside the Iguassu National Park. Since this is the only hotel located inside the Park, you will get unlimited access to the falls - whether it is at dawn or in the evening, when the park is closed to others. Besides the special privileges of its location, the Belmond Hotel is a beautiful Portuguese-colonial residence with regal old-world charm and impeccable service. The property is vast and well kept. Enjoy the swimming pool and the spa, and of course the views of the Falls with your breakfast or dinner.
Staying at Hotel das Cataratas is all about exploring the Iguassu Falls in every way imaginable. From romantic walks along the soaring water to thrill seeking adventures through the river, there is an abundance of activities. Take a 10-minute helicopter ride across the falls, or choose a 35-minute tour to the Three Borders Landmark (Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay). Appreciate the sheer size of over 275 waterfalls from above. Enjoy the Macuco Safari tour for an adventure through the river. Abseiling is another unique activity to try - descent down along the rainforest for incredible views of the falls. End the day with a full moon walking tour, where you can witness a lunar rainbow.
Traditional churrascaria (Brazilian barbecue). Piranha soup and Pirarucu fish. Caipirinhas.
Fly into Foz do Iguassu International Airport - a short drive away from the falls.
