Easy to navigate, safe and reasonably clean. There is plenty of options for dining and accommodation. However this is a place you visit to go to the Falls, a long way from everything else, once you have seen the Falls, maybe have a day around the town and some time to relax, however this isn't much to see here.

There is nothing special about the place other than the fact that it´s close to the falls. However; one can find everything they need during the touristic stay such as banks, atms, restaurants, supermarkets and souvenir shops.

Lots to see - bring your wallet - you will end up buying things. We walked around without feeling in danger - day or not. Lots of restaurants and shops. Enjoy the day and or night there.

The waterfalls are amazing - if you have the chance, go and see them. We visited both the Argentinian and the Brazilian sides. Both are great, but if you only have one day, choose to see the falls from Argentina. You can see a lot more and get closer to the falls. The area has a bit of a run... More

A lot of good restaurants, heladerias, hostels etc. A very nice spot if you want to see Iguazu. Buses to everywhere, the Brazilian side (Foz), Paraguay etc.

Not really much going on here except a convenient location to the falls. Find a good hostel, I stayed at Bambu and loved it, and have fun there.

About a 20 min ride from the airport, Puerto Iguazu has mostly hotels to host the tourists that come to see the falls. It is also situated where the Rio Iguacu and Rio Parana "meet", which separates Argentina from Paraguay and Brazil. There are many restaurants and souvenir shops, but most people will spend their time at the falls anyways.... More

This is a town which is being slowly modernised with very basic buildings for the most part being gradually replaced or remodelled to fit the largely tourist clientele. However, very basic areas are adjacent to some quite modern ones.

If you want a place to chill out that's a fine one. It's a calm city with a lot of good restaurants. I recommend it.
