SUSTAINABLE CITRICULTURE:
the role of applied knowledge

Foz do Iguaçu

cataratasThe city of Foz do Iguaçu (also named Iguassu in English and Iguazú in Spanish) is located at the west end of the State of Paraná, and is the second most visited leisure destination in Brazil, after Rio de Janeiro. "Iguazú" comes from the local indigenous languages (Tupi and Guarani) meaning "big water" and it does make sense! The city is characterized by its cultural diversity and is integrated into a tri-national region, bordering to Argentina and Paraguay. There are many hotel options, an international airport and a modern infrastructure to attend large business events, in addition to numerous touristic attractions.

Foz do Iguaçu is known to be a city of warm weather, but weak cold waves sometimes come to town and make the temperature vary from day to day. September is the end of wintertime in Brazil, and there will probably be some warm and cloudy days at this period, which is characteristic for western Paraná at this time of the year.

The city has about 100 hotels and inns. The ICC 2016 will take place at the Mabu Thermas & Resort, a hotel with thermal waters, SPA and haute cuisine, located 10 km from the Iguassu Falls Park.
Real (R$) is the official currency of Brazil. However, in Foz do Iguaçu are accepted Argentinean Peso, Paraguayan Guarani and American Dollar (USD$) in many places.

The main attractions are:

  • Iguassu Falls: an experience of immersion in nature through walking trails in the woods and the proximity of the immensity of the waterfalls in the Iguassu River;
  • Iguassu National Park: protected by IBAMA (Brazilian Institute of the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources), the park is the place where the water falls are located. Shared with Argentina’s Iguazú National Park, both are home to many rare and endangered species of flora and fauna, among them the giant otter and the giant anteater. The clouds of water spray produced by the waterfall are conducive to the growth of lush vegetation.
  • Itaipu Dam: one of largest hydroelectric dam and energy producer in the world, Itaipu Binational plant is located at Paraná River, between Brazil and Paraguay;
  • Bird Park: an opportunity to see birds from different regions of the world. Located near of the Iguassu National Park, the Bird Park develops projects for the conservation and the protection of some species. It is also possible to see reptiles and butterflies.

Finally, Foz do Iguaçu also has other tour options that complement tourism in the region, such as boating, casino, the cities of Puerto Iguazú (Argentina) and Ciudad del Este (Paraguay), and rural tourism in west of Paraná State, with technical and adventure tours.

The Paraná State is located on the southern border of the State of São Paulo and on  the northeastern side of the Argentinean province of Misiones. The State of Paraná presents a strong agricultural based economy, and an emerging citrus industry. ICC 2016 participants will find great opportunities to meet people and learn about citrus production and processing industries from all over the world!
