Don't miss Devil's Throat from the Argentinian side

The walkway from the Argentinian side to the Devil's Throat was spectacular with fast flowing brown water in the river beneath you feet.

Good exhibits showing the size and scale of the dam. Its a couple of hours worth - including the travel up and down from the town of Foz do Iguacu. Not a family attraction, young kids may get bored. Good for people interested in the subject.

AMAZING!!!! We took a boat up the rapids where we were able to see both the Brazilian side and the Argentine side of the falls up close and personal. So personal that every inch of my body was sprayed with the water falling from the Argentine side into the Iguazu river. It felt really refreshing as our previous hike entailed... More

We went on a rubber duck (carries 30) boat ride up the river to the Falls. They even drive right under one of the Waterfalls again and again. Sounds scary but no, a whole lot of fun. Just be prepared you WILL get very wet! A must do.

The falls were incredible. View from both sides Brazil and Argentina and if you can take a helicopter ride and view from the air.

We visited the Brazilian side first, taking an early morning local bus. The Tourist Office near the bus station was staffed by a very helpful person who recommended a tour for the following day, to the Argentinian side. This was valuable advice, as the transport was inexpensive and the driver took care of the border crossing, saving time and effort.... More

The Argentinian side, as experienced by other reviewers, is definitively the best. Go there even if you stay on the Brazilian side. But be prepared to be sacked and have dry clothes in reserve.
