Create an itinerary including Marco Das Tres Fronteiras
The green and yellow obelisk of Marco Das Tres Fronteiras on the lookout platform signifies the place where you can see three markers designating the exact point where Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay meet. The trail to this equilateral triangle is about 2,000 m (6,650 ft) long, surrounded by pine and guava, as well as locals who may try to stop you to sell you something or beg for money. You'll find a cafeteria, craft shop, and a gazebo where you can observe the three countries, and the confluence where the Iguazú flows into the Paraná River.

  • If you go, arrive before dark to fully enjoy the views. We were delayed and only saw the area at night. The dancers were very good and provided a glimpse into the dancing styles of the 3 countries...

  • For what is just a view over the river with some expensive restaurants, a few cut hedges and a tourist sign with long queues, I was starting to think that this was a very over hyped and expensive...

  • It was a cool vibe, beautiful story and show. Was amazing to see all three country's flags so close. Food was good. Would recommend. Only thing that could be improved is to have English translation during the show, my wife had to explain and translate but other then that it was beautiful. 4.5 stars 👍
  • There is a live show with dancers from each of the three countries just after sunset each night. We arrive before Sunset and hot photos with the sign and then the show started just after sunset. The rope shows you where the show is going to be and you can take some of the plastic chairs from the seating area and lineup for the show. The show lasts about two hours with very large gaps between the performances. The best is definitely save till last!
