Getting tourist board information right before and even during your vacation in Brazil, can really help you benefit from the most up-to-date details about the region you are visiting. Perhaps there is a festival occurring that is new on the calendar that a tourist board can help you with.

The United States Government has a webpage dedicated to South American travel, full of tips and advice which is good to check out.

Brazil has their own country-wide tourist board online that is loaded with information on the country and traveller updates. You may also call them at 1800-727-2945 and they have an office in Washington D.C.

The city and region itself has several tourist boards. Foz do Iguacu has a tourist board webpage as well as an online guide sharing with Curitiba, a large city that is about 600 km from Foz do Iguacu.

Checking with your own government or the host country's embassy is always a good idea before traveling to make sure you meet all of the entry-requirements. The U.S. government provides a list of requirements online. Because the city borders Paraguay and Argentina, it is smart to look into their tourist boards and entry-requirements as well.
