Iguazu Falls, Foz do Iguacu

4.9
Dam Waterfall Must See
From miles away, you'll see mist rising up as the water from Iguazu Falls plunges a height of up to 90 m (295 ft). This total of 275 waterfalls form the largest chain of waterfalls around the globe. To minimize damage to the National Park's environment, you'll board a colorful bus to access the park and view the falls. An elevator allows you to descend to the lower falls where the water meets the pools. Walkways extend out over the falls to viewing platforms overlooking Devil's Throat, with picturesque panoramas all the way to Argentina on a clear day. As you climb a little bit closer to the falls, you'll feel the mist cooling your skin and see butterflies fluttering around the colorful rainbow illusions created by falling water.

  • I took an early flight from Buenos Aires and had a driver waiting for me in Iguazu. He connected me with a larger group for the day. The falls are amazing. Way exceeded my expectations. I paid the ext...  more »
  • Qto the wonder that is, everyone has said here. I will give some tips q were useful to me:-does the Brazilian side. -If the macuco safari wet, light jacket and the shoe/shoes in the closet (we went barefoot in the boat). -We did the macuco at lunch, and we had lunch later, we avoid the turmoil (but we took clothes p change, you will come out soaked)-take your mineral water-the coatis will try to steal your food KKK caution!

  • We had the privilege of a visit to the Falls in November of 2017 and enjoyed every minute of our time there! The many sights of the Falls along the trails was so enjoyable that the days flew by way too fast. The boat ride up river to the Falls is a must for anyone who enjoys this type of activity; I was the only one in our group of six who went and will always remember it as one of the most exciting thing I have ever done; never have I been so wet!!
  • Hands down the most amazing place I've ever seen. We were lucky enough to see this place which is like something from another planet from both sides. Argentinian side is better if you just have one day although the Brazil side offers slightly better photos from a distance. Loved it!!!!!
  • The most amazing set of falls you'll ever see. I covered the entire Argentinas side in one day including a thrilling boat ride that will take you straight in to one of them! Very well marked indicators of where to walk along the paths in Spanish and English. Bucket list item checked off
  • A must if you love waterfalls of any kind. Very rich history. I would recommend 2 days to do the whole park. Safari rides through the jungle is very cool experience as well. Bring good walking shoes because you will be walking a lot. Did this with my with along with our two sons (ages 7 & 9 troopers).
  • An awesome, immense and powerful waterfall set in the jungle. Best to check the conditions before you make the effort as often the water is down to just a trickle. The railway to the falls is a great experience. The optional jet boat ride to the base of the falls is exhilarating as the full force of the waterfall pummels you inside the boat. You will get wet! Drenched more like it. Wildlife, butterflies and birds are an added extra :)
