What do you do when you’re in rural Brazil? Feast on churrasco and enjoy a lively dance show, of course. In the city of Foz do Iguaçu near Iguazu Falls, the Rafain Churrascaria dinner show gives a flamboyant introduction into Central and South American music, dress and dance cultures: 45 brightly-clad musicians and dancers put on a lively two-hour show bursting with Argentine tango and Brazilian samba, Cuban salsa and Mexican mariachi music.
Established in 1959, at Rafain Churrascaria the popular all-you-can-eat buffet has over 200 hot and cold dishes with Brazilian specialties that include a typical churrasco barbecue as well as international dishes ranging from sushi to Italian, and there are also many dessert options.
On Av. das Cataratas, 1749 in Foz do Iguaçu, the shows at Rafain Churrascaria run from Monday to Saturday at 8:45 p.m. As the city of Foz do Iguaçu is near the border with Argentina, it’s also easy enough to come here for the evening from the Argentine town Puerto Iguazú, though do check your country’s visa requirements for coming into Brazil. Dinner-only tickets for Rafain Churrascaria cost 50 reals, while dinner and a show costs 90 reals.
