The Iguazu Falls (alternatively spelled Iguaçu or Iguassu) is one of South America’s most impressive natural wonders, bordering Brazil and Argentina. Eleanor Roosevelt reportedly exclaimed on seeing Iguazu for the first time 'Poor Niagara'! With 275 separate waterfalls including the roaring Devil’s Throat, we certainly agree it is very impressive indeed. In fact, no matter how many times you visit Iguazu, it never fails to impress and the memories will live with you forever.
Staying at Iguazu Falls
The majority of hotels at Iguazu are located around 20 minutes away from the entrance to the National Park and their prices are lower.
The first glimpse of the Iguazu that most will experience is from the many walkways on both sides of the falls, and we strongly recommend viewing the waterfalls from both countries. You can also take an adrenaline fuelled speedboat journey in the gorge beneath the Falls.
For a drier experience, helicopter flights offer fantastic aerial views of the falls and the National Park beyond, which is home to hundreds of species of flora and fauna.
