Puerto Iguazu is not the Falls but the small town on the border and closest to the falls. Some reviews here are of the falls. The town is where most hotels are and it's obviously not benefiting from any tourist money! It's worth seeing the...More

this is a bucket list place. If in Brazil or Argentina take the time, effort, and money to visit this area for at least two days. You will never ever regret the experience. Visit both side of the falls.

The town is a tourist trap but there are excellent lodges in the area. You need to see the falls from both the Brazilian and Argentinian sides and the latter has more to see but the former has better cities.

We drove around this small town and took in the sights, including the point where 3 countries are cornered together only separated by a 2 converging rivers, and the intersection of 7 streets without any red light.

It's a good location to stay for 1 night in order to visit the waterfalls very early in the morning. You will have to take in the poor hotels, rundown neighborhood and the junk pizzas and burgers. Absolutely nothing else to do that is worthwhile.

Puerto Iguazu has truly mushroomed in recent years. I barely recognised it from the early 1990s. Nevertheless I was impressed with the atmosphere of prosperity and modernity which prevailed. The city residents are very friendly and foorthcoming.

We took a bus, however you can also take a taxi. We went with a group, so the bus may have been a cheaper option.
