The colossal power of these thundering falls, viewable from both Argentina and Brazil, and accessible from Paraguay, is a mesmerizing sight: 275 separate falls in a U-shaped formation pound the water below in raging cascades with a deafening intensity.

A must visit..take the bus (120)..you can visit the Parque das Aves (Birdpark) the same day if you wish..the Brazilan side is a good place to start to see an overview, but the Argentina side is more encompassing and spectacular as you can get right below and right above 50 or more falls..Niagra Falls looks insignificant in comparison.Don't take the...

The best way to explore this area is to visit both sides of the falls: Brazilian and Argentinian. The gargantuan falls offer stunning views and a experience you won't forget. Very touristy, but it's worth it!

There are no words to describe the beauty of the Iguazu Falls. The visit of the Brazilian side of the falls will take about 1.5h without any supplemental activities. The park is very well organized with frequent shuttle busses from the visitors center entrance to the falls.

We saw this amazing place both from the Argentinian and the Brazilian side. Both are amazing experiences, but also very different. The Argentinian side is much more close-up, loud and wet - you really feel the power of the waterfalls. The Brazil experience was a bit more relaxed and had better opportunities for taking nice pictures. At the same time... More

The Argentinian side of the falls are definitely more impressive but you need to see the Brazilian side to really appreciate it. And it is still beautiful and worth it. Plus there are other things to do besides see the falls, like the bird park.

An absolute must see. The views from both sides are spectacular. Allow up to full day for Argentina side (we did it in half but hurried and didn't go to the island) and half day for Brazil. More time for extra activities. Trails are in good condition and safe. We came from airport on Argentina side and put luggage in... More

The Brazilian side of the falls gives a look of a bigger prospective than the Argentinian side. It is worth as much as the other as they are quite different. The falls are just majestic. You can really feel the strength of nature. It is absolutely something to see in a lifetime!!! BEWARE OF ARGENTINIANS! They rip off all your... More

Totally understand why this is one of the seven Natural Wonders of the world. It is outstanding. We were able to view it from both sides. Definitely take the boat ride!

Gorgeous, beyond any doubt! Spectacular views all over the Argentinian side of the falls. But avoid visiting on Sundays. We found all the runways and platforms completely overcrowded and were therefore nearly relieved when leaving the park. The entrance fee is to high if you are not able to see everything due to visitors overflow. During the week should be... More
