Iguazu Falls, Iguazu National Park

Dam
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.

  • Excellent experience. As any activity outdoors must drink water, take CAP, use blocker Sun and insect repellent for mosquitoes. Go as early that they can and already had breakfast. Wear comfortable shoes, but they are mostly non-skid.

  • Despite pouring rain and a very long day to see everything falls, we loved our experience. The professionalism of the Rio team more laps allowed us to enjoy the adventure. The visit of the falls on the Argentine side asked to be in good physical shape. However the Brazilian side is physically less demanding and gives an idea of the greatness of this spectacle of nature. It's really a wonder of the world!...
