Not much to do, but the people are very friendly and welcoming. The town is really a jumping off spot for all the outdoor activities in the area.

We arrived here in tropical rain and 100% humidity. When the rain stopped, we discovered a cute little town right on the edge of the rain forest. We enjoyed the brightly coloured buildings, the friendly bars and restaurants and local buskers.

This water falls is wonderful as it has so much plant life growing out from it which makes it look unique. The walk ways give some stunning views for photos and the boat ride is epic fun.

It's truly impressive, I saw it from Argentina side, did the boat ride (Which is again a must) as it offers a different experience all together, Nice train ride to Devil's throat. The charm and awe of the place was so great that I visited it for 2 consecutive days and also enjoyed some of the wild life in the... More

We were only able to view the falls from the Argentinian side. Many tours abound at the airport and bus station but don't bother and save your money. For Arg $ 50 you can take a Rio Uruguay Iguazu Cataratas bus from town to the falls. For Arg $ 240 you can enter the Iguazu National Park and see the... More

This little city might have at one time been a fun little tourist stop but now it is mostly run down with shops which hold no interest for a visitor. There are also lots of children begging, at least when we were there.

We were so impressed with this waterfalls. You need two days, so you have time to see the falls from both the Brasilien side and the Argentina side. On the Brasilien side you have the panaramic view on the Argentina side you are walking in the falls. On the Brasilien side take a helicopter tour - it looks amasing from... More

Just go! We couldn't go to the Brazilian side but were thrilled with what we saw on this side. Took a boat up to the base of the falls and, as we were told, came back soaking wet. This day was one of the highlights of our trip.
