I have now had the good fortune to visit all 3 of earths great waterfalls - Niagara, Victoria and Iguazu. I think this is by far the most beautiful.

Dress or be prepared to undress for a dip in the falls for during the Great Adventure Boat Ride and Jungle trip Afterwards we visited the spa at the Sheraton for a couples massage... More

Iguazu Falls is a must visit from both Argentina and Brazil. I recommend you visit the Brazilian side first and then see the Argentinian side. (Australians need to pay a US$100 reciprocity visa costs before entering Argentina.....do this online and print out the receipt). Sections of the walks on the Argentinian side have been washed away. This includes the upper... More

We were pressed for time as had caught an overnight bus and arrived in a Foz du Igaucu that morning. Found it quote easy to get a taxi from Brazil straight across the border and back in 3.5 hours! So saw the Brazil side too. The place is amazing and fully justifies it's wonder of the world status. Unfortunately when... More

We spent time on both the Brazil and Argentine sides of the falls. At the time we were there, the falls were recovering from massive rainfall so some of the walkways were closed as the water had risen that far, they had been damaged. That being said, we still saw everything. Unfortunately the weather was rainy and misty, so visibility... More

A not to be missed destination if you are in the Buenos Aires vicinity. Just DO it :) We have been to Niagara Falls but this one is equal or better and so so beautiful.

Of all the natural wonders in the world, two of them stand out to me. Yosemite National Park in California, and Iguazu National Park in Argentina. We took 3 of the paths: The Devil's Throat, the upper falls and the lower falls. The first was amazing. Looking down into the main part of the falls was like looking into the... More

The trip by boat is also outstanding, which you can do right up to where the falls hit the river on the downstream side. We captured many outstanding photos of not just teh falls, but amazing woldlife including birds, butterflies and marsupials.

This has to be one of the most impressive sights I have ever seen, and Niagara is very much poorer by comparison. The trip up from Buenos Aires was definitely worth it, and while the hotel in the National park was expensive, the view from the rooms on the falls side was quite unique (there is no point staying there...

Truly one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world. As Eleanor Roosevelt said after viewing the the Falls, "Poor Niagara" . We had limited time having lost a day in transit but still managed to see the Falls from both Argentina and Brazil(in my opinion the most spectacular side) in one day-while still going at a leisurely pace...
