The Brazilian Border Stone Mark or "Marco" has been handed over to the private sector as a PPP (Public Private Partnership). The first stage of the the new Tourism Complex is open to the public. It includes a Visitors' Center, a Bar overlooking the Iguassu and Paraná Rivers besides of course offering the opportunity to peep at the Paraguayan and Argentinean Border Marks. The company who got permission to run the place hopes to deliver the whole project by December 2017 which will include a Cabeza de Vaca Memmorial, the reopened and renewed iconic Space for the Americas, restaurants and one or two observation towers.
* Did you know that the Spanish conquistador Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca "discovered" Iguassu Falls on his way from (what now is) the Brazilian Coast to Asuncion, Paraguay, is also part of US History ?
