We spent several hours here walking all three trails. Getting a ride on the train to the Devil's fall can be time consuming. The upper trail has boring views from the top of the waterfalls. The lower trail lets one get close to some water...More

If you like water falls, you'll like Iguassu. Make sure you're there for 1 full day. Fly up from Buenos Aires one day, do a short hike that same day, then do a full day hike the next, and leave the following day. Flights from...More

The falls HAVE to be seen from the Brazilian side. (From the Argentinian side, one has a very long trek and long waits to get to a viewing platform that only allows a view of part of the falls.) On the Brazilian side, getting to...More

This is the Argentinian side so you are mostly above the falls which gives a different perspective and you get to see the force up close which is spectacular as is the whole area. The infrastructure is struggling to cope with the volume of visitors...More

there is nothing like that in the world...an explosion of energy, water, nature. See them from the Argentinean side, the brazilian is less interesting and not well organised....a lot of people for just one place from where to see...no facilities....

It goes without saying that once you see the falls, they are indeed spectacular, how this is not a natural wonder of the world, they are mesmerising! The park is laid out into three sections, a lower walk, which was our favourite as you walk...More

Thanks, Sohini77! I'm glad that I was able to help out in this tricky situation. Good idea to see the Falls on another trip dedicated to Argentina! There is so much to see and do there too and the prices for pretty much... More

we just returned from here, so it's quite fresh in our minds. I'd also recommend that you spend one complete full day on the Argentina side. A guide in the park isn't really necessary, as the paths are well laid out. For... More

Iguazu Falls Argentina (3 Replies)
Hi everybody, planning to go to Iguazu Falls in mid December for 1 night, hoping to arrive on the first flight in the morning from Buenos Aires and leaving on the last flight back to BA the day after. Only interested in Argentinian side of the falls. Looking at Posada La Sorgente Hotel or Hotel Catarats which is quite a bit more in price. Trying to book it through Partir Vajes in BA or BAPrivate Tours. Anybody dealt with any of these companies, your comments please. Or would you book it...More

If you had three weeks - how would you plan the itinerary? (6 Replies)
I do have to be able to stay in Buenos Aires for at least 4 nights or more - I want to be able to immerse myself in BA. Also I would like to include the Iguazu Falls (Argentina & Brazil side).

Thanks RicardoBA! I think 7 days in BA sounds great too! The longer the better! I've already been thinking about renting a condo for that week. I was thinking of the Palermo area of Recoleta? Is SoHo Hollywood apart of Palermo? So you don't recommend squeezing Mendoza in the three weeks? We are thinking of taking baby - who will be four years old at the time - is El Calafate or Bariloche okay destination to take a 4-year old?

Iguazu Falls Argentina to Brazil With Luggage (6 Replies)
We will arrive at IGR airport at 11.15am and leave the next afternoon from IGU at 4pm. Is it possible to leave luggage somewhere if we go from the airport straight to the Argentinian side of the falls and then catch transport thru the border into Brazil. Then we could do the Brazilian side of the falls before catching our flight to Rio or would we be best to hire a car and driver for the whole time from the airport and not have to worry about storing luggage, if so how much would this cost....More

Hi Judy, I would not leave the luggage with your car and driver. Leave it in the checkroom of your Brazilian hotel, depending on where you'll be staying, then swing by to pick it up on the way to the airport. You'll likely spend at least a couple of hours inside the Brazilian national park. What do you suppose your driver is doing while you're in the park? Sitting in the parking lot twiddling his thumbs, is what you're expecting, I bet! When we hired a car and driver in Brazil, we...More
