Iguazu Falls - The Brazilian Side

The Brazilian side of the falls is a bit more crowded than the Argentinean side because there is only one path leading to the falls.  The views are somewhat more panoramic, however, because it opposes the Argentinean side which has more falls.  And there is an elevator to bring you up and down next to the falls.

Hiking on your own is not allowed; you need to stick to the allotted areas and walkways.  It is possible to take helicopter rides from Brazil, but Argentina had forbidden such flights in their space because of the environmental impact.  Boat rides are also available from the Brazilian side.

An important note about visiting the Brazilian side:

 

YOU NEED A VISA.

This visa is basically a stamp on a page of your passport, letting the Brazilian authorities endorse your visit to their country.  You must apply for your visa in advance.  You can use a local Brazilian consulate.  The fee is around $110 and is usually required in the form of a money order.  You then need to wait 10-15 business days, which means you will be without your passport for at least those days.  Shorter times are possible if you submit the forms directly to the local office or through an expeditor.

Your valid application for the visa must contain a passport-sized photo, and a valid printed itinerary of your time in Brazil.  Your passport must have at least one blank page (for the visa stamp which is quite large.)  Your passport will be stamped again as you enter and leave Brazil.

Most tourists find the Brazil side of the falls not nearly as impressive as the Argentina side, and suggest forgoing the difficulties in obtaining entry into Brazil.  If you really would like to add the Brazil portion and don't mind the visa hassles, it is recommended that you start with the Brazilian side, and then work your way to the Argentinean side.
