side to cross a bridge of 480 meters of extension constructed in 1985
that is known as the Bridge of Brotherhood. Visitors arrive in the Iguaçu
National park through a Visitors Center equipped with an optimal structure:
rest rooms, first aid room and plaques that illustrate the spectacular
biodiversity of the park. From here, we start off through two eco-stations
via ecological trains, specially prepared for low environmental impact
tourism. The duration of each train is approximately 20 minutes. The first
visit is of the superior part, and then we will move to the inferior or
lower part before reaching the impressive gorge and waterfall called "The
Devil's Throat." From the Argentine side, you will have a direct
view, maybe the best view of the day of the 200 waterfalls that make up
the Foz de Iguaçu waterfalls. And finally, we continue to our last
