Una falla geologica producida en el cauce del rio Parana hizo que la desembocadura del rio Iguazu quedara convertida en una abrupta cascada de 80 metros de altura. Desde aquel punto, donde se originaron las Cataratas, hasta donde hoy en dia se encuentra la Garganta del Diablo existen 27 kilometros de distancia, debido al retroceso lento erosivo, pero continuo en la posicion de las Cataratas. Esta gran cascada original, se ha convertido en dos grandes arcos sinuosos de 2700 metros de extension. Siendo el salto mas imponente del conjunto, la Garganta del Diablo, de 80 metros de altura, se encuentra en el curso principal del rio. Segun el rio, posea mas o menos caudal se pueden admirar entre 160 y 260 saltos, que en terminos medios serian unos 1500 metros cubicos de agua por segundo. La violencia de la caida produce una niebla permanente, en la cual los rayos solares conforman multiples arco iris de insuperable belleza. « less

We are in the rain forest. It rains... That is why the fslls are so bombastic, loud and elementally inebriating. Heaven knows what ridiculously over the top prose I would come up with, had the sun been shining and the sky blue. As it was, it felt as though with the rain pouring down, and the thunder clapping, that this... More

One of the best moments of my life was standing, with my rain poncho, in the middle of all of the water falling around me. It was so beautiful and powerful. Just an incredible place. Words don't do it justice.

Beautiful place to visit. Great if you can visit both brazilian and argentinian park. I found the brazilian park with a much better infrastructure. Restaurants are really expensive inside the park, for you to have an idea, a 300ml bottle of water is $28 Argentinian pesos, aproximately $4 dollars. The falls are amazing.

When in the city of Puerto Iguazu paying the falls a visit is an absolute must!!! If you're back-packing you'll be happy to know that there are lockers big enough to keep back-packs and that the fee is very reasonable. The park is a lot bigger than the Brazilian side of the falls, there are lots of trails to explore... More

Argentinian side is also a must. Don't settle for just visiting Brazilian side. Falls come from Argentina and the views are better from Brazil but the trails of the park in Argentina are more worth to see. Although I highly recommend to bring your stuff always with you as they are many people that like to take things without your... More

When in Argentina (Puerto Iguazu city) and even in Brazil (Foz do Iguaçu), you should visit the falls in the Argentine side also. The park is much larger than the Brazilian side. Enjoy the speedboat ride (cheaper here) and set aside at least a whole day to do the various hiking trails over there. Once there you can see the... More

I spent the whole day at the park, and I could not see everything. Since I was running out of time, I took the 15-minute boat tour and it was so wonderful! The heavy waters falling in your head just show how great nature is. Be alert: they only accept Pesos for the entry ticket.

Our group did the entire trail- upper, middle and lower as well as the boat ride. We all loved it. Some of the trails are narrow and good balance is required. The area is well cared for and the views of the Falls are all outstanding. The trail from the boat landing to the truck that takes you on to... More

This has got to be one of the most breathtaking views I have ever seen in my life. It was magnificent and so beautiful! There are no words to describe how it looks. You really just have to come and see if for yourself. I'm not a nature person and to be honest I hate nature and hikes and heights... More
