Argentina: Iguazu Falls – Argentinian side

Visit Us

Straddling the border between northeast Argentina and southern Brazil, the Iguazú Falls (spelt Iguaçú in Brazil) are usually rated number one of the big three waterfalls, the others being Niagara and Victoria. They are often considered to be Latin America’s most awe-inspiring natural sight and a must-see for anyone visiting the highlights of the continent, not least for their setting amidst subtropical rainforest alive with birds and butterflies.

Argentina’s side of the national park has a comprehensive set of panoramic walkways, culminating in the magnificent boardwalk to the Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat). The Brazilian side has less infrastructure and perhaps fewer visitors, making a visit equally worthwhile. Close by is the Parque das Aves, among the best bird sanctuaries in South America.

Our insider tips for Iguazu Falls – Argentinian side

Sarah

It’s hard to fathom the scale of the mighty Iguazú Falls, a vast complex of frothing cascades fringed by tropical rainforest. The view from the Brazilian side gives the best panoramic view but the Argentine side is where you get the closest to the thunderous Devils' Throat. Both are a must, not to mention the exhilarating boat trip to the base of the falls for a unique perspective of these magnificent falls!

Set out to the awe-inspiring Devil’s Throat as soon as the Park opens in the morning (you’ll have to be staying at the Melia Iguazu, within the Argentine national park to do this). It’s a brisk walk, but you could well be the only people there, before the shuttle train brings other visitors.

Take the thrilling helicopter overflight of the falls, a great way to get wonderful shots of this awesome natural wonder and to truly appreciate the immensity of the cataracts and river network that cuts through the surrounding impenetrable tropical jungle. Flights leave from the Brazilian side near the bird park so it combines really well with a visit to the excellent rescue and rehabilitation centre for birds.
