We arrived in Foz Do Iguacu, the Brazilian town on the Iguazu Falls in the early afternoon. While in the process of navigating our way into the center of the town a local man selling tours at a set of traffic lights offered to take us to a camping ground. We accepted, and off we went following him on his little motorcycle. The campground turned out to be very nice, shady, with all the facilities we require (see below).

Sharing the campground with us were four large Brazilian motorhomes 35-40 ft long, with two of them towing cars just like we see in the states. Unlike the US they are built on Mercedes or Scania truck chassis.

We made a quick taxi trip into centro to book air tickets to Rio for the up coming Saturday, and arranged for me to have my eyes tested the next day - I need new glasses for driving. I guess the aging process has not stopped while we have been traveling.


We found a very nice campground not too far from the downtown area of Foz Do Iguacu. All the conveniences, toilets, hot showers, laundry, electricity, internet, wifi and pool. And we can leave the vehicle here while we fly to Rio. The place is called Camping y Pousada Internacional (website:, email

Over the course of our stay in Foz we found information on two other camping areas.

  • The first is Hostel Paudimar which is off the road between Foz and the falls. There is a large billboard add on the right hand side of the road (as you travel towards the falls). From another travelers website we got the gps coordinates of S 25° 35.944' and W 54° 31.493. Their website is

  • There also appears to be a Camping Club of Brazil facility near the national park entrance. Right next to the turn into the parking area there is a sign for camping, and the CCB. We did not go looking for it so can not comment any farther.
