Falls from trails and boat ride

You can see these falls on the Lower Trail, and also if you take the jet boat ride! You can stand in awe of them for a long time!

There are 250+ falls, but I understand that this is the section that our jet boat went close in. We were drenched and what an exciting place..... the power of nature

As almost all the falls in Iguazu park, also the SelvaViva is breathtaking. Probably the fact that is much large than other falls, it is for sure one of the most spectacular... especially if you have a blue sky and sunny day, and the rainbow appears into the fall.

One of the many falls that you can visit and get "up close" to in the Igauzu National Park. They are all amazing and unique in their own special way!

We went through the entire Iguazu National Park and it is one of the most beautiful promenade. If you do all three itineraries the upper, the lower and the train, you will witness the beauties of each section of the falls including SelvaViva. We strongly recommend to do all itineraries. As a map of the national park, the walk will... More

It looks like this place is temporarily out of action. If you look at the attached photograph it looks that way since last half of 2015. Hopefully I got that right.

After seeing so many birds in the parks it was good to learn what the birds actually were and how we should interact.

We have the opportunity of watching birds and learn how to birdwatch and undertand a little about them. Its environs also contain a plethora of animals to observe and photograph.
