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.

Lingering a few days at the falls so you can enjoy all the experiences and activities on offer, and be able to take advantage of your hotel’s facilities: many have pools, large gardens and nature walks.

Setting out to the Devil’s Throat as soon as the Park opens in the morning (you’ll have to be staying at the Sheraton in Argentina to do this). It’s a brisk walk, but could well be the only people there, before the shuttle train imports other visitors.
