Iguazu Falls

Why visit Iguazu Falls?

Situated on the border between Brazil and Argentina, the falls are made up of 275 separate waterfalls occupying an area 3 miles wide and 80 metres high, and flanked by lush rainforest. 
Highlights of a visit to Iguazu include:

  • The Falls are one of the natural wonders of the world.
  • There are national parks on both sides of the falls. You can visit both side of the falls.
  • The Brazilian side of the falls offers excellent panoramic views and are best visited in the morning when the light is better for photography. It is also best for sunset views. 
  • The most spectacular part of the falls, the Devil's Throat, is on the Argentine side, and some of the best rainforest trails are also on this side. 
  • There are walkways close to the bottom of the falls and also above the falls, even looking down into the Devil's throat.

When to go to Iguazu Falls

You can really go at any time of the year. High water is about January to March - when the falls looks like one vast waterfall, and low water is roughly July to September when there are lots of small separate falls.  Either way it is spectacular. 

Iguazu Falls: How to do it

There is an airport at Iguazu Falls on both sides.  Whichever side you choose to visit, we can organise a visit to the opposite side for you too so that you have a different perspective on the falls. 
On the Brazilian side, if you stay in the lodge in the national park, you have access to the walkways even after they are closed to the public.

Accommodation in Iguazu

In the national park on the Brazilian side you can stay at Das Cataratas. Outside of the park you could look at San Martin.  In the park on the Argentinian side the Sheraton is the place to stay.
