Your tour guide will tell you about the Iguazú National Park which is split between Argentina and Brazil, and is an absolute must-see for nature photographers!
At the entrance of Parque Nacional Do Iguaçu, take another bus and head to the beginning of the only footbridge inside the park.

Back from the footbridge, you’ll have some free time to use the restrooms, visit the gift shop and take a special elevator to an especially high viewpoint, before taking the bus back and returning to Puerto Iguazú.
