Discovering Iguaçu Falls, the world’s largest waterfall system that’s home to 275 cascades, is a truly wet and wild experience – a must for any Latin American adventure. Indiscriminately straddling the borders of northeast Argentina (where it’s spelt Iguazú Falls) and southwest Brazil, the river the falls flow into also converges with a third country, Paraguay. Appreciating the falls from each country gives varied perspectives on the plunging spectacle. But to get you started, rush over to these boutique hotels in Foz do Iguaçu – on the Brazilian side.

Wildlife lovers and bird watchers will love staying at Guata Porã, a rural agro-ecological lodge whose homey cottages are found a 15-minute drive from the entrance of Iguaçu Falls. The farm-to-table approach means breakfast is an organic affair as many ingredients are sourced from the lodge’s garden. After visiting the falls, chill out by the swimming pool or investigate one of the lodge’s trails. You can also try your hand at churrascaria (Brazilian barbecue) on the lodge’s grills.
