The colossal power of these thundering falls, viewable from both Argentina and Brazil, and accessible from Paraguay, is a mesmerizing sight: 275 separate falls in a U-shaped formation pound the water below in raging cascades with a deafening intensity.

The park was great. I would like to explore on my own. Every path is very organized structured and I can understand why that would be a good idea. I might've been tempted to go outside the box and climb a waterfall otherwise.

A must-see. Save half a day to see the Brazilian side, and an entire day to see the Argentinian side, since you can see it from two different places. Check also for visas, if you´re going to Argentina. It´s important to have it.

Approaching from the Brazilian side, the views just get better and better - the Creator saves the best til last!! THEN you think, "should I even bother going to the Argentinean side as well?". Answer: YES! Absolutely; it's a different experience, giving different views. Both sides are highly organised for the visitor. I would say the Brazilian side possibly would... More

We visited the falls on both the Brazilian and Argentinean sides and both we equally amazing. The sheer size, power and sounds of the falls is something I will always remember. We went on the boat ride that takes you to the bottom of the falls on the Brazilian side which was amazing. Don't kid yourself thinking you won't get... More

It is absolutely a "must see in your life", amazing power of nature shown in the most beautiful water falls, they were bigger and larger than I ever thought, aside with its beauty. You will walk a lot and get wet, but everything absolutely worth it. You must do both Argentina and Brazil sides.

I had an amazing time visiting the falls in Iguazu (Brazilian side) We were a little bummed because it was a very rainy day but despite the rain we had the best time! We purchased poncho's from some locals who were selling them out front and proceeded into the park. We were able to take great pictures at all of... More

Beautiful and impressive water fall. Beauty coupled with power of nature. Fun to walk the trails and view the falls. Must visit the Devil Throat.

This is the kind of things you can't just see on Youtube or on some pictures, because this material will only provide you with just a piece of the whole thing. You have to be there to feel it and to experience it entirely. This is about 275 waterfalls on a front of about 3km with a total throughput of... More

We have seen Niagara Falls but this is something else, the number of falls, the constant roar and the spray is incredible. We started on the Brazilian side with the walk along the canyon which had several special viewing points - but the whole of the falls were visible along the whole pathway. Ending with the pier built out into... More

Visited Iguacu falls on the Brazillian side first and it is just amazing. The park is well kept and the falls are just amazing with breathtaking views throughout the entire walk. Go early as even outside main season the place gets busy. We went on the speedboat trip down to the falls which was great fun - you literally fell... More
