The river is the lifeblood of the region, and so the development that has taken place would not have happened but for the river, so you really can't get away from the river; and it forms the international border too.

This river is surrounded by amazing rainforest, and you even see monkeys and several exotic birds. It is a great experience for the more adventurous traveller.

Walk along the metal walkways to take in the spectacular views. It can get quite busy later in the day, so the earlier you can get started, the better.

A never to be forgotten life time experience. Nature at its wettest, wildest most spectacular best. You have to photo it, but beware depending on the wind direction it can be very wet, so a protective cover for your camera/phone is advisable.

The beauty and power of this area is incredible, the surrounding forest, beautiful plants, butterflies, and birds on display everywhere and then you see the falls, or did we hear them first - the noise up close is quite overwhelming. After walking up close and getting absolutely soaked we took the boat to get an even closer view. However no... More

The river itself is not so very spectacular but the waterfall of Iguacu is really A-MA-ZING!!! It is a natural miracle that makes you feel very small. It is a real beauty and also the surroundings are worth being visited. Near the river there are several beautiful places to walk and see fauna and flora/
