Create an itinerary including Iguazu Falls
At Iguazu Falls, on the border between Argentina and Brazil, experience the raw power of the Iguazu River as it tumbles off the Paraná Plateau into a deep canyon. The river flows over three sides of the canyon, covering a 2.7 km (1.7 mi) stretch of cliffs. Small islands along the plateau edge divide the river into hundreds of separate waterfalls. The tallest plunge for 82 m (269 ft) into the narrow chasm known as Garganta del Diablo, or the Devil's Throat. Walk out onto the lookout point, several feet above the Devil's Throat. The raging torrent throws spray hundreds of feet into the air, so prepare to get wet. To reach the falls, you must pass through a natural park. A train provides rides from the entrance, but the 30 minute walk often takes less time, as it avoids the lines. Keep an eye out for jaguars, toucans, monkeys, butterflies, and more among the lush scenery. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Iguazu National Park holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Iguazu Falls and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Remarkable experience. Our first sight of the falls stopped us in our tracks. The beauty and sheer magnitude of these falls is like nothing else in nature. Be sure to do both lower and upper...

  • We travelled from the town by bus. Look for the bus with the word 'Cataracts,' on it. You can catch it from the main bus station and the cost of a single ticket is 500 pesos. Journey is about 30...

  • Foz de Iguazu on the Brazil side has fantastic panoramic views of the entire falls covering both Brazil and Argentina side falls! The viewing decks, trails and helpful signs makes your trip to this natural wonder memorable! Power of nature, amazing wildlife, attractive flora and fauna of this region and very friendly people on both sides are the highlights of this world heritage site! Amenities inside the park ad transfer arrangements from and to the park are world class!
  • This is nature well and truly on Steroids. It seems unbelievable how so much water (over a 2.5 kilometres view) can continuously keep falling. It truly is a jaw on the floor sight. The walkways above the river give you the ideal scenario of being able to stand above the face of the falls. Also from below you can walk up towards it. AMAZING, and a must do. If you’ve seen Niagara, the perspective of these falls is: Iguazu is twice the height and 3 times the width of Niagara, (around 6 times bigger). Added to the water spectacle, the trees are full of Monkey’s hundreds of species of birds, and thousands of huge butterflies. I also spotted many South American Coati’s (Racoon type animals) as well as some Turtles in the river. The place is the Tops. You really do need more then a day here.
