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.

  • The place is beautiful. In addition to the exuberant beauty of the falls of the waters is available a bus that takes you to the site for optimal viewing. You can get off at other stops to make bicycle ride, boat very close to the falls and even walk. Worth every cent you invest.

  • Overland route and inflatables. Helicopter tour fascinating but very good. Be reviewed with more calm.

  • People who go to Foz do Iguaçu, definitely want to enjoy nature through the falls. No wonder, in Brazil, is the second most visited by foreign tourists. The beauty is impressive.

  • This place is a natural wonder of the world. Bordering Brazil and Argentina, Iguazu Falls is one of the most spectacular sights in all of South America, and should not be missed on your travels! I feel privileged to have seen such beauty. There's really not much more to say, visit it in your lifetime. Highly recommend.
  • This site has to be one of the top waterfalls in the world. We had an amazing 4 1/2 hour guided trek through the park. Brilliant.
  • We visited both sides, Argentina is the best (this review) but Brazil is also pretty good. Great walking paths, public amenities & food/water points. Saw 1 alligator which was amazing. The jet boat trip under the falls is spectacular but at 1200 peso each it should be. Entrance to the park is 500 each but if you get your ticket validated at the end of day 1 you can return the following day for half price.
  • One of my favorite places in all of Argentina!! It is a must stop if opportunity to go! I found it well worth it especially all the exotic wild life was an unexpected bonus for me!! We did the extra day with 50% off entrance fee. I used my GPS tracker and I must have hiked over 12 miles between 2 days there! Drink lots of water!!
  • This park is great! The water falls are truly epic. I recommend doing it on your own. Avoid going during high season. It's when all the schools are out. Get there early and do the Devil's Throat trail first. If you are a fast walker avoid taking the train, it is pretty slow. Do the trail that has the boat ride last and get the shortest boat ride. The long tour that includes the truck ride isn't worth it. Take a change of clothes as you will get wet, but it is totally worth it to get an up close view of the falls.
