Plenty of restaurants to choose from. Not much to do in town. The falls are the big attraction, outside of town.

Puerto Iguazu is a single purpose tourist town for Iguazu falls. It isa disjointed town dominated by wide spread resorts and according to resort employees mainly has single night visitors

We did all of our viewing of the falls from the Argentinian side. We were told that you can cross over to the Brazilian side WITHOUT a visa, because there is no checkpoint at the crossing. In the unlikely event that you were stopped by police in Brazil without a visa, all they do is send you back to Argentina.... More

Puerto Iguazu is a cosy place with big waterfalls and excellent gastronomy. However, I would not stay for more than 3 days, you can visit the Cataratas in both of the countries, walk during the night in Puerto Iguazu, and try some nice restaurant.

With its cracked and missing paving stones and sometimes smelly drains this is clearly a second world city which is surprising given the number of tourists visiting the falls. Sadly, however something is wrong as there are large numbers of closed shops on the way down to the river. The actual port area is well worth a visit as there... More

After reading the reviews we decided to visit the falls without the use of a guide. We found this to be the right decision. Maps were easily obtained, there was plenty of staff to answer questions and they all understood English to keep us on target. The trails are well marked and easy to understand. This is a place you... More

The falls are just amazing! We did the tour ourselves. You do not need a guide. Be sure to be there early in the morning for the first train up to the falls. Do the trip on the boat but make sure to take some dry clothes for afterwards. These were the nicest falls I saw. I preferred them over... More

Wonderful, fantastic and of all the world famous falls I have see it is really the most beautiful. I only saw the Argentine side and what I see from photos it is that the light is better from the Brazilian side . Impressive!!!!

Both Brazilian side and Argentinian side are worth visit,although Argentinian side need more time around 5 hours. Don't miss the boat trip but no need to do the jungle ride part. The entrance fee is only cash so be prepare The falls are wonderfull and impressive
