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.

  • It's really beautiful, but quite pricey. I think it could be cheaper, even more once everything inside is charged. DON'T FEED THE QUATIS, doesn't matter how cute they are. And respect the queues for the observation decks for photos. Magical place and everyone should go once in life.
  • Awesome waterfalls, best if seen from both Argentinian and Brazilan sides. Start at Brazilian and then leave the biggest impression for Argentinian side. Compared to some other waterfalls around the globe, these will certainly impress you the most both in size as well as the "power of the water". If having more time, also you can take part in one of the boat trips on the river (a bit bumpy and wet, but very thrilling experience).
  • This is by far the best waterfalls I've seen so far. It can be a bit touristic depends on season but you can't miss. 2 days are required to properly see the both sides, Argentinian and Brazilian. Garganta del diablo and boat into the falls are a must.
  • Good network of short walks gets you up close to some of these monster waterfalls. I suggest going early and leave the train ride for later so that you have the walk and view of the falls to yourself
  • This is truly the greatest waterfall in the world. See if from the Argentina side first! I also flew on heliport helicopter for an amazing end to the trip
