The Itaipu Dam situated on the border of Brazil and Paraguay is the world’s second largest dam. It is also one of the most expensive objects ever built.
Itaipu Dam is located very near Iguazu Falls, north of the Brazilian town Foz do Iguaçu. You can get there easily by taking a local bus.
Surprisingly, the combo tickets are cheaper if bought at visitors’ centre rather than online. Luckily, refunds are offered for the angry tourists like us who decide to complain about the online rip-off
We would suggest buying the panoramic tour during which you’ll be taken to both sides of the border. The tour is preceded by 30 minutes documentary about the history, facts and construction of Itaipu Dam.
We also recommend the night tour which ends with a spectacular illumination of the dam.
