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.

If you want a little excitement and a close up encounter with the falls this is a must do. There was a short ride through the jungle on an electric train, then in a jeep like vehicle to the boats .The path down and up to the boats on the stone staircase could be a little too much for anyone...

If you like the thrill and being close to nature and do not mind getting soaking wet no matter how you try to avoid it then take the MACUCO rafting on the Iguaçu river. Little expensive but great fun

After a really busy visit to Cataratas do Iguacu, we took a drive into the jungle and a boat ride up the river Iguacu, running away from the crowds. The personalized attention of the crew, a boat just for the five of us and an hour long ride up the river took us into, what seemed, miles away from the... More

Fantastic natural wonder. The boat ride from the Brazilian side of the falls was amazing, you will get very wet. It is worth visiting the both Brazil and Argentina side of the falls to see the best views
