Iguassu Falls

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.

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.

The Iguacu or Iguassu River delineates the border between the two countries, namely Argentina and Brazil, thus forming a natural border. And, the river is what forms and feeds the 'Mighty' and Spectacular Iguassu Falls.

Great trip, with fantastic view of the falls and an exciting dunking under one of the falls. Not for their elderly or infirm due to steep, slightly slippery steps to the boats. Great to see the falls from the river after you have done the walking trails.
