The colossal power of these thundering falls, viewable from both Argentina and Brazil, and accessible from Paraguay, is a mesmerizing sight: 275 separate falls in a U-shaped formation pound the water below in raging cascades with a deafening intensity.

This makes Niagara Falls look like a small puddle. We saw the Argentine side first and were quite impressed with the vistas and the walks. They bring you awfully close and show them from different perspectives. The Brazilian side provided great views as well. Worth seeing the Falls from both perspectives to really appreciate how magnificent they are.

One of the most magnificent sights I have ever witnessed. It is spectacular from both the Brazil and Argentina sides. Even more wow than Niagara.

before going to iguaza falls we read many reviews on here. the place is just unbelievable, mind blowing and a must-see. we did the brazilian side first - felt did not require a tour guide for this and that the boat trip where you get soaked by one of the falls is definitely worth it. argentinian side - we used...

The Brazil side was beautiful. We took the no.120 bus from central Foz do Iguasu which cost only R$3.20 per person (the same bus that you can take to and from the airport). There are quite a few stops at the park for optional activities so it is possible to spend a whole day there. There are some very wet... More

Iguazu knocks Victoria and Niagara Falls into a cocked hat. Really massive and dramatic ... the town is lots of fun too, it's the smuggling capital of South America.

Reserve your boat ride!!!!!! Recommend walking to the falls first then return for the boat ride to build up to an amazing experience. Wait for a boat without kids to get the full thrill as they are more careful with children on board.

We stayed inside the National Park at Belmond Das Cataratas and had a full day tour to the Argentinian side of the falls. We included the boat trip under the falls. The whole place and experience is hard to describe in words but in my opinion it is truely the 8 th Natural Wonder of the World. We had local... More

We spent time on both the Brazilian and Argentinian side of the falls and highly recommend that those visiting take the time to do the same. Both sides are spectacular and unique, offering different perspectives on falls. Both countries have done a fabulous job with their respective national parks. The pathways are easy to traverse and safe, with both parks... More

I took the bus for R$3.50 (a bit over a dollar) from the airport on the Brazil side to the park entrance. The park tour is about R$60, and it was worth it for the view of the falls alone,. Two warnings: 1) Watch out for the little raccoon like critters that are cute, but they bite!! 2) Plan accordingly,... More
