Overview

The Iguazu National Park was created in 1934, with approximately 67,620 hectares/167,091 acres was declared "Natural Heritage to the Humanity" by the UNESCO in 1984 due to its scenic beauties and to the great biological diversity of the subtropical forest. This natural sanctuary, was declareted new 7 wonder of the world in 11/11/11. The Iguazu Falls are located in the Argentina's northeaster corner, bestowed with benevolent rains and temperatures (15ºC/59°F average in Winter and 30ºC/ 86°F average in Summer) brings about a very humid atmosphere almost windless due to the leafy vegetation canopy. The Iguazu river has a total extension of 1320 km/ 820 miles until flowing into the Parana River, 23 km/ 14 miles after the waterfalls. Inside the National Park, the river widens to about 1500 meters/ 0.9 miles and turns south, next it turns north, in the shape of a wide "U" where the river mouth presents the abrupt slump of soil which conforms the cataratas: a magnificent waterfall. All along the above mentioned prominent curve, a proliferation of reefs, islets and prolonged islands provoke the fragmentation of the river in numerous branches. When the river reaches the cliff, each branch becomes a waterfall and together comprise the great Iguazu Waterfalls. The Iguazu Falls appear grandiose and majestic in the Misiones forest dazzling visitors from all over the world. In celebration of all this beauty and unique attraction as from July 2001, a new concept of ecological tourism has been implemented within the Iguazu National Park, with an investment of 25 million dollars and service and facilities according to the international tourist demands, prioritizing at the same time the Park's care and preservation, a sample of the Paranaense Subtropical Forest declared Natural Heritage to the Humanity" by the UNESCO in 1984. The fundamental objectives of this enterprise are the recover and conservation of the Waterfall Area, and the incentive to the present and future generations to renew the legendary admiration arisen by this wonderful masterpiece of nature. Today, our visitors can enjoy safe and modern walkways from start to finish of the impressive falls and the Upper and Lower Circuits and the Devil's Throat, and facilities according to the natural environment such as the new Visitor Center and the alternative transportation of the Ecological Forest Train, which complies with international policies of accessibility and preservation of the World Union for Nature Conservation.

We visited the Argentina and Brazil sides and I highly recommend going to both if you have the time (don't do it in one day). The Brazil side is a good place to start as it gives you the giant panoramic view. The Argentinian side...More

The Iguazu Falls are 5-6 times bigger than Niagra Falls! You've got to see them to believe them! You can walk right into the spray at The Devil's Throat".

The Falls were absolutely breathtaking and refreshing. Butterflies like I have never seen before, colorful and numerous. The wet, soaking boat ride was a thrill. I was wet, wet, wet with laughter, tears and waterfalls of course

As Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “Poor Niagara”! The falls are spectacular and the park is lovely. An amazing number of butterflies and the toucans are special!

Just amazing, not to be missed. Would highly recommend the wet boat ride after, simply brilliant but nothing will help you from being soaked

Awesome humbling experience. Raw power of nature as millions of tons of water hurtle over huge cliffs some of them half a mile long.
