The Falls at IguazuWith a span of two km, the Iguzaú Falls are spectacular. Dividing Brazil and Argentina, views can be taken in from both sides from the subtropical forest that covers the 2100 sq km of Parque Nacional Iguazú. Nature enthusiasts of all types will find plenty to gawk at here—flocks of butterflies, birds, jungle animals such as jaguars and toucans. For more information on the falls and the surrounding area, be sure to check out our guide to Iguazú Falls.

Jesuit Ruins

Jesuit RuinsBuilt in the 17th and 18th centuries by converted Guarani natives and the Jesuit priests, these settlements were the site of peaceful cohabitation and merging of cultures between the two groups. Today, the red bricks are overgrown by luscious green vegetation. In remote areas, the ruins present an almost mystical scene. For more information, please see our guide to the Jesuit Ruins.

Rosario

The city is located along the Paraná River, which provides camping opportunities. There are also many universities in the city, which attracts a lot of young adults. Not on the typical tourist route, it’s just beginning to develop to welcome foreign tourists. Please check out our thorough guide to Rosario.
