    Trains frustrate an otherwise amazing day.
    The falls are amazing. The hiking is pleasant. The trains on the Argentine side are unpredictable. The signs claim they run up and down every 30 minutes. Reality is they make it to and from the middle station, but seemingly randomly make all passengers disembark and the reverse course. My only guess is the concessions stand was missing its goal for the day, so they increased the number of people at the middle station. The Brazil side did not have such silliness.

    A True OMG moment!!!
    Words, pictures or even videos cannot completely capture the beauty, power and spectacular that is Iguazu Falls. But it should be on the top of everyone's bucket list. We finished our cruise in Buenos Aires and decided to spend a couple of extra days specifically to go to the falls. We selected an amazing private tour company (Signature Tours) who fly us down and back to Iguazu in a day...and we still had nearly 8 hours at the falls. We got to see nearly everything (including the boat ride into the falls!). Definitely plan ahead for our visit. We accidentally went on a Sunday that was a national holiday and the park was PACKED. While the crowds didn't deter us, it was slow moving along the walkways over the waters and getting a quiet moment to take a quick picture was a little more challenging. BUT GO!!

    Stunning!
    Amazing Experience, we came here a day after visiting the Brazilian side and it was just as incredible all over again. Lot more hiking in Argentina with some really incredible walkways and viewpoints on the Superior/Inferior loops. The train stations are a little confusing, I would just say allow plenty of time on the Argentine side. The Devil's Throat viewing platform is an engineering marvel all by itself. We also ate at first cafe inside the entrance (or last cafe before you leave) and the empanadas were quite good.

    Majestic!
    WOW!! If you are visiting Brazil or Argentina, please add this majestic place to your itinerary. We are so pleased we made the trip during our tour of Rio, it’s worth the extra flights etc. We flew to the Brazil side of iguaçu but stayed in Argentina (taxi transfer over the border was easy) and spent most of the time in that side of the falls. The walks around the falls are just beautiful. We stopped at the Brazil side for a few hours on our way back to the airport (they have lockers large enough for suitcases) and saw a different and colourful 🌈 perspective of the falls. Definitely worth doing both sides! A must see for everyone!

    Truly a wonder
    There are no words / pictures that can sum up this amazing place. We were overwhelmed by the beauty. This was the highlight of out Brazil/Argentina tour. We also did the Boat experience..... wow! Defos worth it unless you are scared of water or boats! If you do this they are not clear how you get your photos / video as they only spoke Spanish and we were not able to go back to take advantage of the footage. Totally gutted

    A fabulous experience you won't forget
    We visited the Argentinian side of the falls two days ago. Quite different to the Brazilian side but equally stunning. The walk takes longer and the vista is slower to emerge but worth the wait.

    Wow!
    After visiting the Brazilian side, we journeyed across the border to view the Argentinian side. The weather had cleared and we had sunny skies. This was a different experience in that there were 3 trails. The main one out to Devil's Throat was first and we were not disappointed with the slightly longer walk out. The looped end was packed with people and it was a magnificent view. Our tour guide had spoken to a photo person before we started out and so when we were out in the crowd, we did get the professional shots done with the waterfall in the background without the other tourists on our shoulders. They took several shots and I bought 2, at $5 each, it was well worth it. I went on the upper trail and that walk was surreal with double rainbows in so many picture areas. I didn't choose to do the lower trail but my friend said that was great also. I waited at the dining area which had several options. I chose the gelato which was inexpensive and delicious!

    Iguazu/Iguassu Falls
    I agree with Eleanor Roosevelt when she said ‘Poor Niagara!’. Iguazú Falls in Argentina and Iguassu Falls in Brazil are both amazing. Both sides allow you to get close to the falls…and wet in the process. We took the boat on the Argentinian side but honestly we were too busy getting drenched and laughing to open our eyes when under the falls. Thankfully the water is warm! (NB: One of the crew sold a video and stills he took on his go-pro…but we never received ours.) Several walks were closed on the Argentinian side, including the Devil’s Throat Trail, but we were still able to stand above several waterfalls. The Brazilian side offered better views of the falls and less walking. A shuttle bus took you from the entrance to the park to the beginning of the 1.5 kilometre trail. We’re really glad we did both sides but unlike other reviews, if you are time-limited and want to get a view of the entirety of the over 200 falls, we think they are best viewed from the Brazilian side.

    Stunning nature in a well maintained national park
    Well maintained and managed national park. See wildlife all around, marvel at the power of the falls. This is a must see if visiting Argentina. Make sure you also do the Brazilian side, which can be a day trip!

    Just spectacular, wheelchair user
    Just spectacular. I am a wheelchair user and went to both the Argentinian and the Brazilian side. Unfortunately part of the walk was destroyed on Argentinian side to devils throat but it can still be seen close up on the Brazilian side. For wheelchair users the paths on the Argentinian side are easier and flatter with better grades then Brazil. The distances are long but they do have 3 wheel chairs available for those that need them. My chair with bike tires had no issues. The upper trail is completely accessible and the majority of the lower trail. They drove us in a car past the difficult portion of the lower trail but one did need to transfer to a regular car seat. They put my chair which folds in the trunk. Big sections of the lower trail were closed due to flood damage. The Brazilian side has accessible buses to take you in to the park and an elevator to see devils throat but not all of their trails are accessible and the grade is steeper in some places than the standard. The Brazilian side normally has an elevator to the boats but unfortunately not working so that was a disappointment. Hopefully fixed in the future. The Argentina side has no elevator to boat excursion. Overall lots of people in wheelchairs and just fantastic place so go. Take someone to push if needed and get wet

You can’t access Devil’s Throat but you can do the Upper and Lower Circuit. We did these, plus a lunch stop and it took 4.5 hours. Was quiet when we were there on a Thursday. You don’t get wet at any point.

The Falls are spectacular - you have a better view from the Brazil side but are immersed in them on the Argentine side so definitely worth doing both.

Our hotel sent Alfredo Adolfo Urunaga to pick us up at the airport but we diverted him to the park first. He then was right on time to pick us up to take us on to the hotel. We had him come back the next morning to take us to the Brazil side. He was right on time and being a car for hire he skipped most of the line at the border crossing.

On the way back he was a few minutes late but sent us a video of the “ manifestation “, a protest blocking the border crossing. He had heard about it and had left early. We skipped most of a huge border backup this time

And his bill for all of this was US$80, payable in dollars or pesos. We gave him $100.

I visited first Argentina side and then Brazil side.

On the Argentina side, I also took the speedboat tour (Ars 60k June 2024); well worth it as you experience the jungle as well as the water fall up and close.

The fee was Ars 35k; I paid by card and they did charge an extra Ars 2450 for the Iguazu conservation fee (or something like that).

I went early in the day and it was not too busy; however hold your mobile firmly on the trail as the pathways are only about 1m wide and you don’t want the mobile to fall off your hand if someone accidentally pushes on you.

Next day I went to Brazil side. I decided to take the Rio Uruguay bus, despite some of the bad/mixed reviews on this site.

At the Argentinian side, everyone dropped off at immigration and the bus waited. As a tourist, it was quick - they don’t stamp the passport.

The driver did not stop at Brazil immigration side so I had to ask him to stop and walked around 200m back. I needed the entry stamp on my passport, whereas other local people don’t 😅. Anyway immigration on Brazil side was very quick - no questions asked, not even return ticket. Passport was stamped.

I then waited for about 1hr for next Rio Uruguay bus to the water falls. On the Brazil side, the road to the waterfalls is busy and there’s a lot of construction. In contrast, on Argentina side the road is 1 lane and more lush.

Once inside the park, the park is very well maintained. I paid in ARS as I had some left - 36500 Ars including locker. There is 1 trail on Brazil side with a good panoramic view of Argentina side. You get up close and personal toward the end of the trail - definitely worth a visit.

MUST add to the bucket list
We stayed three nights in argentina and three nights in the brazil side
The argentinian side you explore on a more interactive way with the falls
The brazil side you have a better view of the falls
My preference was the brazil side but most likely because I stayed in the Belmond Hotel inside of the park and could enjoy the experience before and after the park is opened for tourists
Also I experienced the full moon walk

One of the most amazing places to visit. The sights and sounds of the 100's of waterfall that surround you along the Iguana River are incredible.

The weather was perfect, and from some of the view points, each and every waterfall had its own rainbow. A montage of colours.

Day 2, although very wet, was really the most amazing day. After traveling to the Brazilian side of the falls, we were treated with the ability to get almost right into the falls and the sheer force of their might. Incredible!

Truly amazing.

Photos can only hint at its vastness and overwhelming power and beauty. And I live in the Grand Canyon state of Arizona.

Most enjoyable hikes along the trails....photographer's paradise. Just when you think you have a perfect photo, walk a bit more and another angle must also be photographed.

We have traveled from south to north of Argentina, and for sure, the falls have been the best part of our trip. Its magnitude has made us feel insignificant. Seeing its beauty and power, It's clear why it is one of the seven wonders. But don't believe in my words. See it by yourselves. My father has taken great pictures!

If you haven't visited the falls yet, you are missing an incredible experience.

The park is run and maintained to highest standard. The falls are readily viewed from a series of footpaths and viewing platforms.
Facilities are good and convenient.
Highly recommended for view you do not get on Argentinian side. But do both and boat trip and get wet!

We knew the weather was going to be bad, but we had no choice as this was our last day in the area. Yesterday we saw the Brazilian side in the sunshine, and HAD to see both sides.

The Garganta del Diabolo trail is currently closed (due to flood damage) and possibly for that reason, it was much cheaper to get into the park than we expected- $20,000 ARG for adults and $10,000 for under 16s. Unlike the Brazilian side, USDs couldn’t be used - it was either ARG pesos or a Mastercard/Amex card.

Two trails are open - the lower circuit (not suitable for pushchairs/wheelchairs due to steps along the way) and the superior circuit (suitable, and wheelchairs seem to be available for free).

The two sides are so different and, in the pouring rain with the odd flash of lightning and roll of thunder, we had the trails largely to ourselves!

On the ARG side you feel more in the thick of the jungle, walking along metal walkways that cross channels, tops of waterfalls and through jungle without making much of an impact on the environment. You feel like you are really part of it - we even saw birds flitting into the falls to catch fish, and others fishing right on top of the falls.

The office signs say the lower trail will take 90 minutes and the upper trail 120 minutes. We were a lot faster so I can only assume that’s when a lot of people are about.

We didn’t have rainbows and gorgeous blue skies, but we saw a different view with very few people around. DON’T FORGET YOUR RAIN PONCHO!

Following our NCL South American cruise which ended in Buenos Aires, I spent a few extra days in the city before heading back to the States. Friends that had been to Iguazu told us we should not leave Buenos Aires without going to the National Park. Be booked an independent tour with a company called Ripioturismo. They did not disappoint. I will review them separately. When we arrived at the Iguazu Airport our tour guide was there to meet us. It was a short drive into the park where we started our tour. The park itself is huge with many great facilities. There were sufficient eating places, bathrooms and gift shops. The park has many different walking trails of varying levels of difficulty. It was very crowded but our guide was able to get us to some of the most popular photo op locations. We took the upper and the lower path which gave us great visibility to the falls from all directions. It was very beautiful. We've been to Niagara Falls on many occasions and this was just a little different. It was something to behold. So glad we did it and I would recommend you make an effort to get there if you are in Buenos Aires. It is a 2 hour plane ride to get there.
