The Park is extremely well laid out with 3 main walking Trails; the Upper (along the lip) the Lower (at the base), and the Devils Gorge which is the main “throat” of the falls with the highest flow rate. The trails are elevated boardwalks which...More

Both sides of the falls are awesome. So massive. A memory of a lifetime. The Argentinian side has a train system to get you from the entrance to Devil's Throat. Prepare to experience the mist, thundering sounds and tremendous amounts of water. The train will...More

Iguazu river makes the border line between Argentina and Brazil. You may reach the Iguazu waterfalls from either country. The Argentinian side of the waterfalls (Parque National Iguazu) have many viewpoints while Foz do Iguazu (Brazilian side) has only one. You may cover the both...More

One of the most spectacular natural sites on the planet. Easy walk on level terrain. Every turn inspired a "Wow" reaction. Better than Niagara Falls in the sheer number of falls. We also did not take the train and saved a lot of time waiting....More

No hiking required; mostly walking on hard trails and walkways. You can skip everything else and walk to the main falls overlook. You will get wet, but you do not need special clothing. The falls are worth the crowds; amazing!

alternatively to a taxi, take an (cheaper) Uber. If you decide to take a taxi, I recommend downloading the app ‘Easy’ and call a taxi by app. That’s more secure and much less likely that you beeing over-charged by the taxi... 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
