The jaw-dropping Iguassu Falls descend from the mighty Iguassu River, on the Brazil-Argentina border.
Right beside the falls, Belmond Hotel das Cataratas nestles peacefully in a protected National Park, surrounded by nature and the Atlantic rainforest.
Foz do Iguassu International Airport is located 15km from Iguassu Falls on the BR-469 highway, which provides access to the falls.

Transportation Within the National Park
The only vehicles allowed to enter the Iguassu National Park are those provided by Belmond Hotel das Cataratas and the park’s Visitor Centre. This policy has been established by Brazil's environmental agency in order to preserve the ecosystem of the park.
We offer transfer services and recommend you make arrangements at the time of booking. We have sedans and vans available upon request.
Should you choose to hire a private vehicle, it must be left outside the park. The hotel provides transportation between the gate and the hotel every 30 minutes. The priority for the shuttle service will be given to guests arriving for check in or departing the hotel with luggage.
