Iguassu Secret Falls
Discovering new places has always piqued my curiosity and expectation. The promise was adventure and many trails with the forest completely preserved and, at the end of each hike, secret waterfalls, little explored, that would unlock the secrets of the rivers that flow through the trees.
Iguassu Secret Falls has been in operation for a year and invites visitors to travel up to 10 secret waterfalls throughout the expedition day on four different trails, which add up to approximately 4 km. The tourist transfer takes place from the lodging places. For the residents of Foz do Iguaçu, the starting point is Shopping Catuaí. After explaining the standard procedures, we boarded a van that takes us to the first trail.
The sound of footsteps is soon overshadowed by the sound of rivers that, as they get closer, become more vibrant and intense. The sense of adventure blends with relaxation. Disconnecting from communications with civilization is critical, but electronic objects need to come out of their pockets a few times to capture the beauty of every detail. For those who want to cool off, there is a break for a few minutes to take a shower and enjoy the natural whirlpools. And at this rate we continue to kill inside, receiving explanations about plants, animals and curiosities of the region.
Some waterfalls are far from each other, so at various times we boarded the van again for another trail. The adventure follows this same pace throughout the expedition. During the whole day a lunch is offered. These waterfalls are being recently pioneered by Iguassu Secret Falls. Some of them are public and others are within private property. Even in falls in public places, the population itself did not know them.
To make the experience even better, it is important to bring repellent, sunscreen, a bottle of water, a snack if you hunger before lunch, a bathing suit and a towel. In addition to these items, it is essential to always observe the place where you step, as well as the instructions of the guides that accompany the route.
Iguassu Secret Falls is very well ranked on the 5 star Trip Adivisor, which is the top rating of the site.
