Stunning national park with a chance to get up beside and on top of the water falls. Metal walkways, all terrain wheel chairs available as well as a train make this accessible for all abilities.

Definitely a trip you have to take when visiting Argentina!! We spent half a day on the Brazilian side and a full day on the Argentinian side which worked out perfectly. The views are amazing on both sides. We did the boat trip which was perhaps over priced but a lot of fun and a great way to see the... More

Definitely impressive waterfalls. There are so many of them, so there are lots of great photo opps. The fog can totally block the visibility, we had to wait in the van for an hour or two until it cleared up enough. The mist will get you wet so be sure to bring a raincoat.

No pictures nor video can do this place justice. You have to see/feel this place in person. The sheer power of nature and beauty of the water falls are mesmerizing. Be prepared to get wet though a poncho is highly recommended. Would visit again in a heartbeat.

I have been to many waterfalls traveling for the last 4.5 years, none as spectacular as Iguazu! which side is better - tough call, I thought the panoramic views of the 275 drops spanning 3kms were better from the Brazilian side. I had a better overall experience on the Argentinean side with 15km of trails and standing in the middle... More

I was expecting Puerto Iguazu to be a smaller city, but its size is perfect. The only reason to be here are the waterfalls, which is absolutely amazing. You need to see both sides (Argentina and Brasil) as they are so different. In the Argentine side you ARE there, in the middle of the action, whilst in the Brazilian side... More

The Argentina side is stunning, there are many walkways to snake in and out of the waterfalls. You can take a bus here from the bus terminal, it comes with a return ticket. The entrance fee must be paid by cash, compared to the Brazil side where credit card was accepted. The boat ride was thrilling and can be paid... More

Iguazu Falls (Catarata) are spectacular. Possibly the most impressive natural features I have experienced. Puerto Iguazu (the town) is unremarkable.

The water falls are stunning. If you plan to see it from Argentinean side you should spend at least 4 hours there but remember that the park is closed at 6 PM. You first take the train to the last station where u start the upper trail. On the way back to the information center u stop halfway to do... More
