Parque Das Aves - The Parque Das Aves is often overlooked by visitors to the Brazilian side of the Iguacu Falls. A shame, as the birdlife from around the world is easy to view either in cages or in the covered enclosures. The enclosures are entered via double doors to prevent the free flying birds from making off and visitors will be able to experience storks blocking their path, screeching parrots and toucans flying from their tree perch to land a foot away from where they stand. In other enclosures visitors may interact with humming birds and large butterflies or view caymans and turtles. Site is available in English, Portuguese, Spanish and Dutch.
