The bridge over Paraná river is mandatory to cross from Brazilian side to Argentinian side (Missiones provinces - to the city of Puerto Iguazu), and vice-versa. You can see the color of the bridge changing from yellow green to white blue in the middle of the bridge.

Awesome view of the river and the different countries. Gives access to the Argentinian town Puerto Iguazu, where can find stupendous ice cream parlors like Freddos and Cremolati.

From this bridge, you can see Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. The concrete barriers along the bridge are painted in the green and yellow of Brazil on their half and blue and white on the Argentine side.

You will use this bridge to cross from Argentina to Brazil over the river. Before you leave Argentina be sure to stop off at the Duty Free for a few bargains.

This area of Iguacu Falls is called "the land of Tres fronteras" - the borders of three countries, i.e. Brasil - Argentina and Paraguay. Ponte Tancredo Neves will bring you by car or bus to Argentina. There is another bridge between Brasil and Paraguay which is more convenient and faster to cross as a pedestrian.

Nothing really special with it. What you should know is that border control is on the Argentinian side of the river, but quick and not intrusive.

You need to cross through this bridge to get to one other country in order to see Iguazu Falls in all its greatness, the bridge itself is not big deal, but you'll cross it anyway.

If you are going to the Argentinian side of the falls you will cross the bridge. It is just a bridge. The only difference is that the sides are painted in yellow and green in the Brazilian side and in blue and white in the Argentinian side.
