Overview

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.

There are about 3km of panoramic walkways on the Brazilian side, and close by is the Parque das Aves, among the best bird sanctuaries in South America. Helicopter rides can be taken over the falls, or you can opt for a thrilling boat safari. Argentina’s side of the falls has an even more comprehensive set of walkways, culminating in the magnificent boardwalk to the Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat).

Where to go when - our guide to Iguazu Falls – Brazilian side

Iguazu Falls

The weather in Iguazu Falls – Brazilian side is wide and varied

The thunderous Iguazú Falls plummet from a sheer 60m drop, crashing through lush, subtropical jungle alive with wildlife and butterflies. The summer months (December - April) in Iguazú are hot and humid, especially in January. Rainfall and water levels are at their highest then, and the falls are particularly dramatic. The spray will soon cool you down. May and October - November are pleasantly warm and often sunny. Winter mornings (June - September) are crisp, but the sky is often clear. With less rain, outdoor activities are easier to undertake.
