A never to be forgotten life time experience. Nature at its wettest, wildest most spectacular best. You have to photo it, but beware depending on the wind direction it can be very wet, so a protective cover for your camera/phone is advisable.

Was that the beginning of the Falls? How calm it was, only to see what becomes at the turn of the corner!

The beauty and power of this area is incredible, the surrounding forest, beautiful plants, butterflies, and birds on display everywhere and then you see the falls, or did we hear them first - the noise up close is quite overwhelming. After walking up close and getting absolutely soaked we took the boat to get an even closer view. However no... More

The river itself is not so very spectacular but the waterfall of Iguacu is really A-MA-ZING!!! It is a natural miracle that makes you feel very small. It is a real beauty and also the surroundings are worth being visited. Near the river there are several beautiful places to walk and see fauna and flora/

We did the boat ride, which has 3 parts. The ride up and back down the river is prety exciting, as the driver plows thru rapids and swells. But when you get to the Falls, you will get soaked. There is no protective gear beyond a head-to-toe rubber suit that will keep you dry. It's great fun, and handled with... More

The walkway from the Argentinian side to the Devil's Throat was spectacular with fast flowing brown water in the river beneath you feet.
