Iguazu Falls & Ibera Wetlands Holidays

Bigger than Niagara Falls the Iguazu Falls in the north of the country straddle the borders of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. They have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986 and are a must see when visiting Argentina. One of the most awe-inspiring and stunning wonders of the natural world, a trip to Iguazu Falls (also spelt Iguassu) is a wonderful inclusion in any holiday to Argentina. Even Eleanor Roosevelt unpatriotically exclaimed "Poor Niagara!" on seeing the Iguazu Falls for the first time.

The Devil's Throat is the largest of the 275 separate falls and can be seen best on the Argentine side of the border. A series of pathways running through the national park from the Hotel Sheraton Iguazu allows you to explore the falls at close range, ending at the bridge walkway to the very edge of the deafening Devil's Throat, plummeting 350 feet below into the Iguazu River.

For those feeling adventurous on their Iguazu Falls tour, you can take a thrilling speedboat ride up the Iguazu River, close to some of the lesser falls or enjoy a stunning panoramic helicopter flight over the Falls.

The region around the Iguazu Falls is also home to Jesuit Missions and the impressive Itaipu Dam, and lush tropical forest with vivid flora and fauna which can be explored from a nearby nature lodge.

Iberá Wetlands

To the south of Iguazu the Iberá Wetlands are the second largest marshlands in South America and are double the size of the Everglades in Florida (the largest wetlands being Brazil’s Pantanal). Still a relatively remote region, the area is home to an abundance of wildlife, including anacondas, capybaras, cayman, marsh deer, howler monkeys and giant storks. We recommend a stay on an estancia where you can explore on horse back as well as by boat.
