Iguazu Falls, Iguazu National Park

4.8
#2 of 1,107 in Parks in Argentina
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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Iguazu National Park holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Iguazu Falls and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • I really loved it and exceeded my expectations. The park is HUGE! I really liked to go on the train through the middle of the jungle to the different seasons, the 3 tours of the walk are amazing but without a doubt the one that leaves you without words is that of the devil's throat ❤️ It is obligatory visit!! It's very nice to have the animals there in sight of everyone and it reconnects you with nature. The boat ride down the falls is SURPRISING and also a must- visit!

  • Beautiful place to walk with family, with trails full of vegatacion, monkeys, coatis, birds, jungle. No doubt you have to do all three circuits, they all have their charms.

  • We flew up for the day form Buenos Aires. We arrived at 10am and headed back to BA at 5pm. This gave us ample time to visit the falls from the Argentinian side but only because we used a private guide...  more »

  • Awesome views! One of the most amazing places I've ever seen and been.
  • Located between Brazil and Argentina these falls do not disappoint. From the thunder of the falls to reappearing rainbows. The beauty and strength of nature combines for unforgettable memories.
  • One of the best experience that I had lived. Iguazu falls are amazing place to visit. There is organized, clean. That place has buses going to falls. It’s more organized and empty the view of Brazil that view of Argentina in my opinion.
  • Simply amazing. There are no words to describe.
  • This side of the falls is amazing. They charge 700 pesos for entrance and if you want to enter the next day you must stamp the ticket and you pay half price 350 pesos to get inside again. The have a train that takes you to the trails. They're 3 trails 2 take 120 minutes each and one 90 minutes. All 3 worth doing as each gives a different perspective and view for the falls. Food in the cafeteria is not the best.
