When To Go To Foz Do Iguassu!?

The first thing to do before planning a trip to Foz Do Iguassu, also think of how you prefer to find the falls.

If the idea is to see the waterfalls at its maximum volume and with great potential, go in the summer; if you prefer instead of seeing the beauty of waterfalls set more water, it is best to go in winter.

If you cannot choose the date of the trip, do not worry: the falls are an incredible show all year round.

The situation is exactly the opposite of summer, which, in addition to an average of 26 ° C, has a great rain, causing a large increase in the flow of cascades.

September and October, historically, are months with heavy precipitation and reasonable temperatures.

The same rule applies to the rain, anyone sees the doors open Itaipu – the chances are higher in the summer.

Fear of getting wet should be back to get to know the parks of the falls, because even if there is no rain, it is inevitable before the steam emanating from the falls.

Go to parks with rain cover, but be aware that by taking boat rides, the protections are virtually useless. Wet a small part of the tour.
