    We visited the Argentine side first despite staying over in Brazil. We managed to get an English speaking taxi driver who took care of all the immigration paperwork for us. We got there early so had a little wait for the first train. Make sure you leave enough time for everything. We went straight to the devils throat and got there before the large tour groups and then took in the upper and lower trails at a more leisurely pace. Everything very well organised. There is much wildlife to see as well as the falls which are of course spectacular. Photo's just don't do the place justice.

    Despite being significantly smaller than Foz de Iguacu on the Brazilian side, Puerto Iguazu is a much cleaner and safer
    Everywhere is safe to stroll at any time of day or night. Renting a bicycle allows you to explore everything, and for those who don't mind a little extra walking, you can get to most destinations on foot. I would suggest living in Puerto Iguazu and taking day trips to the Brazilian side because it is more affordable and the locals are friendlier and more helpful.

    Great event
    Nice facility well taken care of. Staff were very pleasant. Some of that park was closed down as the bridge to the main attraction was washed out. Cost is 20.00 per person. No need for a guide as there are many signs and helpful staff.

Wow. We made a lastt minute decision to see Iguazu Falls whilst in south America.
i have never seen anything like these falls. Absolutely beautiful. We went on a private tour with Mmc tours . We were there at opening 8 am.
Thank goodness as was a very hot day. We only had 1 day. But easily did the Argentine side in tge morning and the Brazil side in the afternoon
I highly recommend a private tour as you skip the lines. So no queing for anything
One of the best holiday memory.

I write this review as I await my flight out of IGU (Brazil airport ). We arrived Thursday into IGR and leave Saturday today Jan 11 out of IGU. Several days ago while reading Trip Advisor I came across the name of a driver Jose who had been highly recommended. I contacted Jose while in Buenos Aires in Tuesday via WhatsApp and set up a pick up at the airport . I cannot recommend Jose enough he picked us up took us to our hotel LoiSuites Wonderful left our bags took us to lunch to a Churrasqueria and then on to the Brazilian Side . Words cannot describe the Beauty and wonder. José breeze us thru the long line at the border he drives to the front with his special badge. He waited for us while we toured the Brazil Falls and then took us to our hotel . Friday morning he took us early to Argentina Falls get there early if you want to purchase tickets to the boats . Picked us up when we were finished took us to town for a late lunch at Aqua wondeful and then on to the three points to see Argentina Brazil and Paraguay from one spot back to our hotel and bright and early to airport Saturday Brazil side . José made this entire trip so effortless and smooth he is so knowledgeable. I cannot recommend him enough he is very reasonable and fair in his prices and his van is clean and new . His number is +54 9 376 436-7081 . I will deff be recommending him to anyone coming to this wonderful part of the world .

Visited both the Argentina and Brazil side of the falls. Words cannot describe the experience. Went to all the trails, devil’s throat, upper and lower trails. I think the lower trail is the best. Got soaking wet at Devil’s throat trail. Lots of people during our visit. Go to park early. Took the first train ride at 8:00am, less people. Will return to visit again.

We visited the falls from both sides of the Argentina and Brazil border, which I recommend. Most of the falls are on the Argentinian side but one gets a different perspective from the other side of the river. There are about 270 falls, some cascading, that cover about a mile. A must see. When First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt saw the falls she exclaimed “Poor Niagara Falls”.

My friend in Uruguay suggested I make Puerto Iguazu part of my visit to Argentina, so I flew up for ta three night stay from Buenos Aires. The sight of these falls is beyond impressive. The main problem is that it is too popular. Not that the crowds of people were objectionable folks, but my first day there I found it too crowded and it was HOT. No surprise there. The park is well equipped with many facilities to handle all the visitors.

We toured the Brazilian and Argentinian sides of the Iguazú falls. We went as family of four with 20 something children. Alejandro had an approach that allowed us to navigate around the crowds. He was very informative and provided great insights. He even taught us how to make mate. We highly recommend touring with Alejandro.

The amount of water volume is three times that of Niagara Falls. The park is divided into three walking areas. I recommend all three as each gives a different perspective. People also hire jet boats and rafts for a different experience as well. We walked in 104° heat for six hours and it was still worth it. We probably walked at least 10 km so bring your water, camera comfortable walking shoes and a towel in your backpack.

If you love nature, you must put Ig Falls on your bucket list. It was on mine and I was more than pleased. One of the seven natural wonders of the world and most people haven't heard of it. A little hard to get to but not bad from either Buenos Aires or Rio. You need 2 days to do it justice. One from the Brazilian side and one from the Argentinian side. The zodiac boat ride up the rapids and into the falls is a must. Yes you will get soaked, but that's the point. If you do the helicopter ride, opt for the short version. The longer version is not worth the money. Look into hiring a local guide that speaks good english and can get you front of the line entrance to the falls. The lines can be very long. Best to arrive at 8AM at the latest.

Well it’s certainly spectacular and very popular. Visited both the Argentina and Brazil sides. Boat trip under the falls is great. Went with a guide and that made it a lot easier finding the way around a very large site.
