Owner description: The Iguazu National Park was created in 1934, with approximately 67,620 hectares/167,091 acres was declared "Natural Heritage to the Humanity" by the UNESCO in 1984 due to its scenic beauties and to the great biological diversity of the subtropical forest. This natural sanctuary, was declareted new 7 wonder of the world in 11/11/11. The Iguazu Falls are located in the Argentina's northeaster corner, bestowed with benevolent rains and temperatures (15ºC/59°F average in Winter and 30ºC/ 86°F average in Summer) brings about a very humid atmosphere almost windless due to the leafy vegetation canopy. The Iguazu river has a total extension of 1320 km/ 820 miles until flowing into the Parana River, 23 km/ 14 miles after the waterfalls. Inside the National Park, the river widens to about 1500 meters/ 0.9 miles and turns south, next it turns north, in the shape of a wide "U" where the river mouth presents the abrupt slump of soil which conforms the cataratas: a magnificent waterfall. All along the above mentioned prominent curve, a proliferation of reefs, islets and prolonged islands provoke the fragmentation of the river in numerous branches. When the river reaches the cliff, each branch becomes a waterfall and together comprise the great Iguazu Waterfalls. The Iguazu Falls appear grandiose and majestic in the Misiones forest dazzling visitors from all over the world. In celebration of all this beauty and unique attraction as from July 2001, a new concept of ecological tourism has been implemented within the Iguazu National Park, with an investment of 25 million dollars and service and facilities according to the international tourist demands, prioritizing at the same time the Park's care and preservation, a sample of the Paranaense Subtropical Forest declared Natural Heritage to the Humanity" by the UNESCO in 1984. The fundamental objectives of this enterprise are the recover and conservation of the Waterfall Area, and the incentive to the present and future generations to renew the legendary admiration arisen by this wonderful masterpiece of nature. Today, our visitors can enjoy safe and modern walkways from start to finish of the impressive falls and the Upper and Lower Circuits and the Devil's Throat, and facilities according to the natural environment such as the new Visitor Center and the alternative transportation of the Ecological Forest Train, which complies with international policies of accessibility and preservation of the World Union for Nature Conservation.

Thats what it sounded like. Amazing adventure. Best waterful I've ever seen. Pictures dont do justice. You have to see it. Did the boat ride to the falls and that was really exciting. We walked all the trails and saw monkeys, cayman, coatis, capybara and toucans. Outside the hotel its quite stark and gray and plain. However, you only need a place to sleep and rest your head. Nice business area too, open and comfy.

Amazing experience! We did just the speed boat ride extra which was so worthwhile... We head the additional jungle tour was poor but loved what we did...

I was silly to buy a guided tour of the park- which IS a waste of money...If you are situated in Puerto Iguazu you can easily take the public bus from the omnibus station, ARS35 each way. Not sure if the public busses also run their dicriminatory pricing towards its guests- but the entrance fee, like most places , is indeed also milking its guests. For you the current rate is ARS170, if you soiuthamerican its ARS70 and locals ARS20...I wonder what would happen if we started treating our visitors in that manner in Europe...

As soon as you are inside the park, this is where you spend your day- for lower level you can walk- its the smaller falls, but still quite spetacular. And for upperlevel you can take the train- I think its included in your entrance ticket- told you I was silly to buy A GUIDED tour through Grayline, but the guide didnt care for his english speaking guests, so you were on your own anyway..do not make that mistake. At the upperlevel you can explore the huge devil- if you are able to get by from the socalled photographers who has sealed all the great views in order for you pay for their service. You will be frowned upon if you enter Their space...silly and a shame.

As you are inside the park they have numerous of activities ie boattrips you can buy. Remember to bring all your drinks, snacks or meals. unless you want to have further milking of your wallet- prices are redicolous...

The views are spetacular and it is worth your money- even you are paying double or triple on everything...

Try see both sides of the falls if you have the visas! Powerful and mesmerizing! There are ramps to make exploration easier and several amazing angles from to see the falls. A wet ski boat ride into the falls is available. It was exciting! Enjoy!
