Belmond Hotel das Cataratas is the only hotel located within the Iguassu National Park, with the world famous Iguassu Falls just a two minute stroll away. As the only hotel within the national park, guests are able to enjoy exclusive access to the falls each morning before the park opens. The Iguassu Falls are a breathtaking collection of 275 waterfalls, extending over almost 3km in an enormous canyon on the Iguassu River. We are pleased to be able to offer a range of experiences within this spectacular region including helicopter flights, rafting, nature walks, jeep safaris and a visit to the bird park.

The Iguassu National Park, home to the Iguassu Waterfalls is formed of 185 000 hectares of forest reserve. Found in the Western extremities of Parana, in the Iguassu River Basin, this is the last extensive area of Atlantic Rainforest in the South of Brazil. The National Park was created with the principal goal of maintaining the area for future generations. A significant step for the area came in 1986 when UNESCO listed the Iguacu National Park as a Natural Heritage of Humanity area. The most important Park in the Prata Basin, and home to hundreds of species of flora and fauna this is an area of preservation where only 0.3% of the total expanse of the parkland is open to visitors. The National Park also spreads into the Misiones Region of Argentina, with the Iguacu River a natural border between the two countries. Belmond Hotel das Cataratas is responsible for financing the Carnivores Project, at a cost of $ 1.4 million. The project will be managed and co-ordinated by the administration of the Iguassu National Park. Its purpose is to try to save the last viable population of jaguars (Panthera onca).
