This structure is by far the biggest thing of any kind that I have ever seen, it's absolutely worth it to pay a visit. There are a lot of different tour modes to choose from. The "Itaipu Panorâmica" is one of the tours you can...More

It's definitely a big lake, but one created by the Itaipu dam. Other than that, its just a lake with here and there a boat or catamaran. The dam is another story. It's very interesting in that it is the 2nd largest dam in the...More

Big manmade lake..nothing special about the shoreline or view..there is a 2 hour boat ride where you can see the sunset and the evening sky..this is the best part..would only recommend the 7:00 p.m. ride so you can see the sunset..good for couples..

Slow, trip out onto the water which has the potential to provide wonderful sunset pictures if the clouds are right.

I did the panoramic tour of Itaipu and the bus crosses the top of the dam and stops at the top for photo ops. There is an option to take a boat onto the lake but no one took it.

This is a huge lake which borders the Itaipu Dam. The dam is visible from a boat on the lake which is a fun activity
