Brazil, the largest country in South America and home of the Amazon rainforest, is world-renowned for its biodiversity and untouched wilderness. Brazil’s attractions extend from frozen-in-time colonial towns to otherworldly landscapes of red-rock canyons, thundering waterfalls and coral-fringed tropical islands. Then there’s Brazil’s biodiversity: legendary in scope, its diverse ecosystems boast the greatest collection of plant and animal species found anywhere on earth. There are countless places where you can spot iconic species in Brazil, including toucans, scarlet macaws, capybara, pink dolphins, sea turtles and thousands of other living species. One of Brazil’s main attractions is the spectacular Iguassu Falls.

Iguassu Eco Hostel
Iguassu Eco Hostel is a basic colonial style house, built in an area with low impact on its surrounding environment. The hostel is located about 500 meters from the Iguassu National Park, so it is ideal for those who want to go on long day hikes and are on a budget. The hostel features its own organic garden and serves locally grown food. We recommended hiking across the border to view the falls from the Argentina side after viewing from Brazil. Visitors can join guided tours to the falls by knowledgeable local guides. Nightly room rates range from $20-30 depending on the season.
Araras Pantanal Ecolodge
The policy adopted by the Araras Eco Lodge, includes the respect to the local habits and our influence is directed towards the development of nearby environmental behavior, also at municipal, social and political levels. Araras understands the importance of conservation and sustainable development as it is vital to their survival in the tourism industry. The lodge is located deep in the Pantanal area of Brazil and is home to hundreds of species of plants, animals, and insects.
