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.

These falls are spectacular. We were fortunate to have seen them when they were almost full. We were told, that I think from Sunday to Tuesday (maybe), the water released is reduced by 20% or so and then increases to full capacity by Thursday. Hope I am reporting on the correct days. The boat ride was fabulous and seeing them... More

A beautiful place made easy by a very knowledgable local guide. It is worth paying the visa costs to visit both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides. Pay attention to the plants and birds as well as the more obvious falls and coati(watch out they bite!).

The largest waterfalls in the world are worth an extended visit on both the Brazilian and the Argentinian sides. The surrounding area is impeccably maintained and the local transport facilities are excellent. A must-di experience.

The widest falls in the world and the most impressive we've ever seen ( my wife and I have seen the powerful Niagara and the taller Victoria Falls). Forget choosing between the Brazilian side and Argentinian. You must do both. I found myself wishing my mind could be a camera that can video the various viewpoints of these spectacular falls...

These are cooling, refreshing falls. There are tons and tons of tourists (like you). NATURE is AMAZING - isn't it? Wear clothes you don't mind being damp.

So much has been said about the falls, and indeed they're a natural wonder of the world and absolutely worth the visit. For the general overview of the falls, no doubt that the Brazil side is best...yet for experiencing the falls, going through the nature and getting wet in the boats you need to be on the Argentinian side. We... More

Iguazu Falls and National Park is one of the most nature marvels on our planet. It's quite personal to say "I did not want to leave". It is magnificent, it is wonderful and it is even magical at times. I can't help but to feel awe of the falls and dense greenery of canopy and forest. Iguazu is not an... More

Must see attraction. Enjoy the Iguazu Falls and take the chance to explore the activities there. Do not buy the activities in advance. It is not necessary, only if you are in a hurry or short of time.

We visited both sides of the falls, brazil and Argentina. Of the two countries there is much more to see in Argentina. It can be a hot and humid trek around the walkways . fortunately for us is was not the high season so not crowded. Be aware that there are Jaguar in the jungle around the falls . Don't... More
