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.

Good fun and exciting 20min boat ride. RIB has seats so fairly comfortable and safe. Bumpy and very bump and yiu you will get wet, very wet or very very wet! Some took rain covers etc - my advice, take shorts and t-shirt, accept you're going to get soaked and then dry out in the sun or take a change... More

Indescribable boat ride on the Iguaçu River , he did spend a moment we will never forget . Intense energy was felt by us, at the time the ship was near the falls

You can walk along the river on both the Argentina and Brazilian side of the river. The Argentina side takes a few hours of continual walking over steel bridges as the water flows beneath your feet. You will see caiman, butterflies, and turtles along the way.
