After breakfast, we’ll take you on a 3-4 -hour excursion to the Brazilian side of Iguazú Falls. Don´t forget your passport! While Argentina contains 80% of the falls on its side, Brazil has the best panoramic view.
On the Argentine side you will have the sensation of being right inside the falls, but only by visiting the Brazilian side can you fully appreciate the immensity of Iguazú Falls. Take your time to enjoy and take it all in, to stroll the different walkways and feel the mist of the water in your face.
Take the boardwalk over the Salto Santa María, which will give you the sensation of walking on the water. Get closer to The Devil’s Throat and feel the power of water! We are sure that this is a day you will never forget.
In the afternoon, we’ll drive you to the airport to take your flight to Rio de Janeiro, and start your exploration of Brazil, the land of happiness!
Upon arrival to Rio’s airport, we’ll be waiting to provide you with transportation to your hotel. Enjoy your leisure time today exploring this vibrant city — you have just arrived in one of the powerhouses of South America!

An exotic mix of beach and mountains, with its colorful colonial neighborhoods and modernist big-city style, Rio is a must-see destination to add to your bucket list. This is the cariocas land, as locals call themselves, where the passing of time is synonymous with the rhythm of samba…
