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.

Argentina is a great country. One of my two favourite places in Argentina is Iguazu Falls. The other is the glacier at El Calafate. The Argentinian side is amazing as you walk on top of the fall feeling all the energy. The Brazilian side is also great for pictures.

“Wow”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Amazing experience!
Somewhere you should visit at least once in your life if you have the opportunity!
I prefered the Argentinean side but if you're in the area I would recommend visiting both sides of the falls.

“Fantastic and breath-taking”
Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

If you want to see one of the most beautiful natural wanders then iguazu falls won't let you down
The amount of water, the abundance of rainbows and even the incredible wildlife that will be sharing the experience with you is just off the scale.

You can visit in Brazil - where you will see the best views of all the falls and also Argentina where you can fly/sail or boat in and around the falls. They are both so close you really should do both.

Incredible experience

“Feel the Power!”
Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

This is a not to miss natural wonder that all should visit at some point in their lives. The park has been designed for maximum access so that visitors of all ages and physical limitations have access to the spectacular views. Overlooking the falls one can literally feel the immense power of the water cascading down into the lower river basin. We went in May and were not bothered by Mosquitos. Take the short boat trip and forego rainforest jeep trip.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

I spent four days in area and visited both sides: Brasilian and Argentinian. They are amasing. For taking photos my suggestion: visit Argentinian side afternoon and Brasilian in the morning.
