“Must come!!!”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

First you can get a bus from the town to the falls it's no 120.
You have two options for doing the boat trip one for R$ 140 which is two hours and one for R$ 80 which is one hour (not for the faint hearted as lots of narrow steps), both trips your in the boat for 20 minutes.

The falls are amazing, the only downside, is that they park could do with signs explaining plants and animals in the area, and also interesting facts as you walk around.

Food, drink and gifts are premium price, bring your own food and drink, also bring a change of clothing and towel to dry off. A water proof mac won't cut it on the boat, swim wear is best. A rain mac might be ok at the devils throat, we didn't have anything and we dried quickly.

Good walking shoes are needed trainers etc, flip flops just won't cut it.

“A must see. Do the Brazilian side before the Argentine side”
Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

Perennially spectacular. As Eleanor Roosevelt said when she came here "oh poor (little) Niagsra"!!! Yes these falls do make Niagara look small! Being sunscreen and insect repellent and a plastic bag for your camera. You will get soaked if you go out on the walkways over the water. Exhilerating and refreshing.

“I'm lost for words.”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Before I visited the Falls (both Brazilian and Argentinian sides), I've seen a lot videos and photos of the falls. But when you are standing in front of the Throat, and looking at the surrounding smaller falls, the marvel of it all just overwhelms you. Landscape is so lush, and falls are just roaring away. WOW!!!

“Absolutely magnificent!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

It's totally a once in a lifetime experience. The biggest waterfall in the world and a wild forest around it. The whole thing is very well organised. You can visit the falls from different directions (Brazilia & Argentina) and enjoy many views. The scenery is breathtaking! You can also approach the gigantic mass of water by boat but don't forget your raincoat, you r gonna get realy wet... Don't miss the ride with a helicopter. The flight over the falls is a bit expensive, but you can take your own pictures from above.

“Awesome falls!”
Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

Great to view the falls from the Brazilian side. From Puerto Iguazu, Argentina just take a bus from the bus station.
