    This is a travel highlight on a global scale. The Brazilian National Park is well organized and run. Purchase tickets (if you don't already have them) at kiosks and then enter the park through the pavilion where you can get onto a bus or meet a guided vehicle if you have a park guide. Generally this is a one way trail. Get off in front of the hotel and follow the canyon rim to the various viewpoints, ending the Devil's Throat area. We were absolutely soaked out on the boardwalks on the day we visited but it was a great experience. There are a couple different cafes and a full service restaurant at the top of the falls. The boat safari is also accessible from inside the park but run by an outside operator. If you have children under the age of 12, and intend to do the boat safari you need to do it on the Brazilian side.

    Totally amazing and awe inspiring.
    A fantastic experience. It is really well organised, so much better than I thought it was going to be. When you start off, the vistas are good, but they get better and better. The sheer size and the power of the falls is truly magnificent. It certainly is a wonder of the natural world.

    An Absolute Must
    We caught the bus here from the ARG town across the river, a journey of 40 mins or so, including crossing the border. Here on the BRA side, there are automated ticket machines, and a long, Disneyesque queue to board a bus for the 12km or so journey to the 2nd stop. While the ARG side takes you to the top of several falls, here on the BRA side 3/4 of the single trail (which has steep slopes and steps) gives longer, wider-angle views that give a better sense of scale. For the last part, on walkways out over the mid-level, we got drenched. But this was great, as the air temperature was well over 30°C here by the water, and over 40°C at the park entrance. We were glad we visited both ARG and BRA sides, on separate days. If you began very early, you could visit both in a single day, but it would be a rush.

    Footpath to Devils mouth closed but no matter
    We had a great day the water falls are amazing. Be prepared to get wet as it is a rain forest. When we arrived we were advised the path to the devils mouth had been closed since October due the path being down. Whilst it would have been good to know before hand it made no difference as views and falls are amazing. I would recommend walking both the upper and lower paths. It will costs more but do the rafting you get soaked but great fun!

    Mother Nature at Full Throttle!
    Well, Day Two found us back in the National Park but on the Brazilian side to view the falls. This NP was founded in 1939, partly from the efforts of Santos Dumont, a famous Brazilian aviator. The view from the Brazil side, is in my opinion, better! Our guide advised that it is a common view. You are closer in Argentina but get the full view on the Brazil side. Plus, with the walkway below the Devils Throat you can't get much closer or wetter! Either way, to fully appreciate the Iguazu (or Iguacu) Falls you need to visit both sides to get the full picture. You will find spectacular sights & truly wonder at these natural beauties!! Plus, you can get up close with the South American Coati, a walking furry garbage cleaner or catch a glimpse of a Toucan!

    Spectacular
    The waterfalls are absolutely stunning, photos don’t do them justice. Start at the Belmont Hotel and do the trail to the Devil’s throat. Two advantages - you don’t get wet until the end and you can take a lift back up to bus stop level.

It is not well marketed. This is a phenomenal place that screams more advertisement and tourist numbers.

Incredible. We had an opportunity to stay at Belmont hotel which gives you a rare opportunity to access the part at any time , so before and after the closure of the parc and that’s, I think, what made my impression but also the sunny day on the Brazilian side more special. Also it was the first day I saw the waterfalls in life and it’s like if you are dreaming - how impressive it is! Traveled with a child of 2 years and 4 months.

Early morning the birds which flies next to the falls in a huge amount starting to go out of their nests and when the sun goes down that when the comes back to their nests and that was an amazing experience.

We loved our time visiting the falls on both sides of the 'man made boarder' - Brazil & Argentina. The butterflies were a special addition.
