Inspirock Rating:
4.9/5 based on 26,000+ reviews on the web
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.

  • One of the seven wonders of the natural world. Amazing to walk on the walkways. Try to view from both the Brazilian and the Argentinian sides as the experiences are very different. Take the boat tour ...  read more »
  • Wonderful place. There are no words to describe the best place to have contact with nature. National Park very clean and well structured. With great tour options. Just not worth buying souvenirs shops inside the Park because they are twice more expensive than downtown.

  • Just go. That's all there is to say. Do the homework concerning helicopter views, boat rides, all that. They're all worth doing. 
  • 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
