Straddling the border between southern Brazil and northeast Argentina, 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.

The 276 separate cascades form a curtain of foaming water which crashes through tangled sub-tropical jungle over a vast granite amphitheatre, protected by national park status. Both countries offer scenic walkways with breath-taking scenery around every corner and easily observed wildlife. From the Brazilian side you’ll get a panoramic view of the 3km cliff edge, on the Argentine side there is a series of walkways leading you above, below and even behind the water.

Our insider tips for Iguazu Falls

Lina

Lina Fuller

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.

Exploring the national park by boat or jeep, getting up close to the tropical vegetation, spotting toucans and parakeets and maybe the odd monkey swinging through the trees.

Abseiling down sheer granite rock faces, with a heart-pumping view down to the agitated, frothing waters below.

What our experts say

Having been to the falls well over a dozen times, I can affirm that they never look the same on any two occasions. The amount of water various from a thunderous virtually uninterrupted sheet, when veils of water intermingle as they crash down, to a multitude of watery threads,   where the bones of rust-coloured rock of the cliff face is exposed between them. There is always plenty of water crashing down the Devil’s Throat though, a staggering example of the brute power of Nature, and almost certainly one of the highlights of your visit.
