Puerto Iguazu is perfectly set up for tourists visiting the famous Iguazu Falls. There are a huge amount of restaurants and typical touristy/souvenir shops and plenty of accommodation. We booked in advance but if you are staying during the low season it's not necessary. Unfortunately no public transport to the airport but the bus station is very central if you... More

This is one of the best things you will experience. Deep in the Argentinean jungle in Misiones province you see this incredible phenomenon. It will never leave your heart!

This rustic town clearly caters mostly to the steady flow of tourists coming to experience one of natures great wonders. It has an abundance of restaurants and shops. The people are friendly and because of the tourism, most speak some english. The town is rife with stray dogs - don't touch them, they are filthy and I was warned that... More

The falls are stunning, wonderful amazing However, all management around it is awful, just miserable. First of all, all trains, going to the falls, dont run very often, we waited two hours to go up and another two and a half to go down. Yes, you can walk it but only if you are very fit. Second, all food and... More

The view from the Brazilian side is quite breathtaking. On the Argentinian side you get much closer to the waterfalls. Take a raincoat / Poncho / Mac as you will get wet. A true natural wonder of the world.

Lovely small town on the river. Much of the area is park land with lots of hiking and nature trails. Of course, Iguazu Falls is the reason for everything else to be here. Don't miss them. One of he most beautiful places on earth!!!

Tiny town with not a lot to do besides the falls, and also can be very expensive for food and lodging. It's right thing to be entertained.

I guess everyone visits Puerto Iguazu just for a couple of nights whilst they go to the falls. Which is exactly what we did. It is a shame that this town isn't really set up for tourists. It is an excellent base for heading off early and visiting the falls It has an excellent bus station with excellent transport systems... More
