What is the itinerary of the Package Rio de Janeiro and Foz de Iguaçu Experience?

We will start our experience in Rio de Janeiro, also known as “Cidade Maravilhosa” (the Marvelous City). And marvelous is the perfect adjective to describe this place: home of one of the most famous carnivals in the world, countless natural landscapes and warmfull people. And on top of that, you’ll find a sculpture considered one of the seven wonders of the modern world.

After that, we’ll head to Foz do Iguaçu to enjoy the biggest waterfall in the world, the Iguazu Falls at both (Brazilian and Argentinian) sides. The name Iguazu comes from native languages of Brazil, and means “big water”. Legend has it that a god wanted to marry a mortal woman, but she ran away with her lover in a boat across the river. Boiling with rage, the god divided the river and condemned the lovers to an eternal fall.
