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.

  • Visit this National Park is mandatory if you visit Argentina. It is a wonderful thing and imponenente, the nature of falls, watch all this flow of water fall, full of energy, vitality and peace. The Park is quite tiring, there are many stairs and walks, I recommend not to do so with very young children, looked tired mothers having to load them. The floors are very slippery. This non-smoking inside, only areas specific, I thought that was wonderful. It is truly a beautiful family activity. RECOMMENDED 100%.

  • Without a doubt I assure you that it is a wonderful experience that I lived in the Park of Puerto Iguazú. Cataracts me filled with lots of energy, is incredible what can form the nature, really IMPRESSIVE! It is advisable to go well early (the Park opens at 8:00), not only by the amount of people that is usually but also by the heat that later (I was this month, November). Anyway you enjoy it equal since you wet all the time, water flies everywhere. And bear in mind that some attractions closed before the closure of the Park. I also recommend you to bring food and drink inside the Park you usually get expensive if one wants to consume. To scroll through all right, 2 days are more than enough. Do not hesitate to go, is an experience that won't forget, I assure you...

  • I've been to parque nacional do iguaçu and is truly a unique experience in terms of size, amount of flora and fauna unknown to Europeans, an infinite variety of botanical flowers animals birds of all races and species and then the waterfall and all the way down its sheer scale that spans two huge States, Brazil and Argentina on the one hand, the immense forests and sprawling across a surge of water flowing and then la garganta del diablo! Oh what a great emotion and indescribable really only recommend all Park and ride with the inflatable speedboat that passes under the garganta del diablo

  • 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..
