The Iguaçu National Park in Brazil opened its doors to visitors last Monday, after weeks of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.


According to the Brazilian authorities, the reopening was carried out “according to the rules of each state and municipality, with planning and obeying all security guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus.”


The National Park can only operate at 40% capacity, must offer hand sanitizer and visitors will have to respect social distancing. The opening hours will also be reduced.


The state of Paraná where the Iguazú Falls are located -one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature and one of the main tourist attractions in both Brazil and Argentina side- is not among those most affected by the pandemic.
