How To Visit

The Three Fronteras Landmark is located at Av. Río Iguazú (Puerto Iguazú, Misiones), close to the Amerian Portal del Iguazú hotel.

Itinerary

Begin your journey at the Landmark of the Three Borders, a point where three countries: Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil converge through the Iguazu and Paraná rivers.

Here, you will find their obelisks, built in 1903, each one representing and showcasing the colors of these three countries’ flags as a nod from their respective cities: Puerto Iguazu, Ciudad del Este, and Foz do Iguaçu.

If you have good eyesight, you’ll be able to appreciate the monuments from the viewpoint; although the green landscape and sunsets usually steal all the attention.

During your visit, don’t miss the chance to explore the local craft fair where you can purchase regional crafts and products, ideal for a souvenir or gift.

Also, take a rest at the nearby café, feel the breeze in the designated areas, and even let the kids play and have fun on the installed swings and games.

Here also you’ll find the Plaza de Agua, a small space where the water jets allow you to get wet and cool off a bit. Kids love it, and you should definitely bring a change of clothes if you’re bringing them along.

In the late afternoon, the Show of Dancing Waters begins in the same place, a light and sound spectacle in the waters displaying images and figures of people dancing the traditional dances of Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay. This show lasts about 20 minutes. We suggest checking the current showtimes in your hotel or at a Puerto Iguazu tourism office.

The suggestion is to visit the Landmark of the Three Borders before sunset when all businesses are open, and you’ll be able to see the sun set from a prime viewpoint.
