What to Pack -- Iguazu in December

Hi there,

My boyfriend and I are visiting Iguazu Falls Dec 03-05.

Seems like I can expect temps between 60-90 F (via Google search). Any recommendations for gear/clothing to pack for this leg of our trip? Was planning for quick-wick items and sturdy shoes.

Advice appreciated.

Hi Pittsburgh!

When we visited in November, we found the temperature hot by day, cooling down to pleasantly mild at night. I have no idea what "quick-wick" items may be, but you'll want hot weather clothing like shorts. With the noon sun directly overhead, you'll want headwear and sunblock. Hotels have pools for swimming.

If you'll be returning to North America when the trip is ended, of course it will be winter, so you'll be dragging along seasonal attire for when you hit cooler temperatures. Your layered sweater and windbreaker will double for nighttime strolls and cold air conditioning. The windbreaker may help if there's a downpour.

Happy travels!

Definitely go for the wicking. The humidity really brings out the sweat.

Lightweight and quick dry as the rain can appear from no where in Dec.

On the Argentine side, there are great walking trails that are well developed but you will likely get wet from the falls. It's quite warm and humid there...I went in March this year.

Expect to do a lot of walking to really enjoy the park and see the falls from different angles. Bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen.

I would add a bathing suit to the list and mosquito repellent is a must.
