Incredible! Reminded me of Niagara Falls, only more intense. You can really feel the power and soak up the mist.

Enjoyable walk out to view. Get pretty wet. Raincoat not needed, but bring bag for camera. One on many nice views. Some what crowded.

We saw the falls from both sides - Argentina and Brazil. The falls are massive and truly spectacular. The walk ways provide perfect views of the various sections of the falls. The Gargantuan is best seen from the Argentine side but both sides are recommended...More

It is about 1.5km from the train station to the Devil's Throat. It is guaranteed to be very hot and humid, but it is worth the walk. Depending which way the wind is blowing will decide how wet you get when you are overlooking the...More

We flew from Buenos Aries for two hours to tour the Iguazu Falls. It was totally worth it. The falls are twice as tall as Niagara Falls and four times the area. Surrounded by beautiful jungles with monkeys, and exotic birds everywhere. It took us...More

It takes about 1/2 an hour to walk here from the train in 30*+ heat. The walkways are all level and cross some wide rivers. There are seats and a few with shade. The impact of watching all that water thunder over the falls is...More

Probably the most impressive part of the falls. Never seen this in my life. To reach it, you need to take the train but you can also walk it, the trail is only 30 minutes long to reach the Garganta del Diablo. You can't go...More

Located within the Parque Nacional Iguazu is this stunning sight. The mists form a shower which mean you can bet you're going to get wet. No matter though because the warmth of the area quickly dries your clothing as you venture further into the park.

This is a truly amazing experience. If you are ever in Argentina or Brazil take the time, effort, and expense to this place for at least two days. The Argentina side provides up close walkways along the top of the falls. You can take an...More

Walking is not too difficult. There are rope rails the entire way. It is a long walk, and you will get wet along the way. Then you’ll get drenched at the destination, but it’s well worth it. Enjoy!

It will be hot so plan accordingly. Do the available trails at the park and take the boat rides that take you to the base of the falls. You WILL get very wet but it is worth the ride.

Ignore the people who said it doesn’t get windy. It all depends on what time of year and time of day you are visiting. When we went in January around midday it got fairly windy and lots of spray all over. This was on the... More
