Salto San Martin, Iguazu National Park

4.9
#9 of 18 in Nature in Province of Misiones
Nestled in a subtropical rainforest between Argentina and Brazil, Salto San Martin gracefully sweeps above and around San Martin Island. If you have enough time and stamina, check out all the walkways--along the upper circuit and the lower circuit--and see the views of the falls from different angles. Rainbow emanating from the mist is also a common sight, so have your camera ready. Keep an eye open for birds flying in and out of the water. Travel light as vehicles are not allowed inside the park, and remember to bring insect repellent. Make your Iguazu National Park itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.
