Iguazu Falls, Iguazu National Park
(4.9/5 based on 9,000+ reviews on the web)
At Iguazu Falls, on the border between Argentina and Brazil, experience the raw power of the Iguazu River as it tumbles off the Paraná Plateau into a deep canyon. The river flows over three sides of the canyon, covering a 2.7 km (1.7 mi) stretch of cliffs. Small islands along the plateau edge divide the river into hundreds of separate waterfalls. The tallest plunge for 82 m (269 ft) into the narrow chasm known as Garganta del Diablo, or the Devil's Throat. Walk out onto the lookout point, several feet above the Devil's Throat. The raging torrent throws spray hundreds of feet into the air, so prepare to get wet. To reach the falls, you must pass through a natural park. A train provides rides from the entrance, but the 30 minute walk often takes less time, as it avoids the lines. Keep an eye out for jaguars, toucans, monkeys, butterflies, and more among the lush scenery.

  • They say that the falls are magnificent, but really, his greatness is not appreciated until you don't know them. This visit I recommend 100%. The Brazilian side offers a panoramic view of the same, while the Argentine iterates through the jungle and is observed from up close the different waterfalls.

  • The most impressive falls I have ever seen. They are just... magnificent. Perfect. The Brazilian side has very nice views, and some short, accessible and fun trails to get close to the water. Every human being should go there at least once in their life. The city does not have a lot of places to go, though, so 3 days are more than enough.
  • The argentinian side is where you can go really close to the devil's throat. You can in fact realize how strong the water is and how magnificent is this place. Definitely a must go.
  • Nothing is left to be written... ok some first hand tips in that case... For best experience visit first the Brazilian side and do the one on the Argentine the next day. Take the train to the devil's in the end for ultimate culmination this fantastic outing to one of the most beautiful place on the face of the earth.
  • Breathtaking sight. A once in a lifetime experience I would recommend to anyone and everyone. It is impressive beyond words!
  • Magnificent...the greatest waterfalls I have seen. Better from the Argentine side. Take the boat into the falls too..
