Orient-Express’s Hotel das Cataratas (www.hoteldascataratas.com; doubles from $428) has just completed its root-and-branch renovation. This is the only hotel within the Iguaçu National Park, which straddles the border between Brazil and Argentina, and its handsome colonial buildings stand within earshot of the spectacular 90m-high falls, which after heavy rains can flow at a rate of 1.7m litres a second.
