it´s about 20 kilometers to drive, but expect some waiting time at the border as there is often a lot of people queing up to get their passport stamped.
count on spending around an hour and a half each way.

Thanks very much for your response. Do you know how much a taxi will cost to the IGR airport? Also how much/long the journey is from the IGU airport to the centre would be?

Many thanks

Are you considering visiting only the Brazilian side of Iguazu? I only saw the Argentinian side, but it was great. I've heard its less touristy than the Brazilian side. There were a lot of hiking trails and you got really close to the falls. We also took a boat tour that drove us right near the falls, which was fun and totally worth it.

When I landed in IGR, we took a shuttle service, and it took us into the town, Puerto Iguazu, on the Argentinian side, and it was inexpensive (like $15 as I recall). Sorry, this doesn't answer your question, but hopefully you'll find it helpful. The falls are great! Enjoy!

i have been to both sides of the falls several times and they are both equally touristy.
i actually think you have more tourists on the argentinian side.
that does not really matter though as the argentinian side is located in a much bigger area and like the previous poster says, you can get real close to the falls and also take boat trips where you go under the falls.
i´d say you should definetely visit both sides if you have the time for it.
it´s 2 different experiences and both are very unique.

Travel Tips for Puerto Iguazú

Packing for Puerto Iguazu

by barryg23

We took malaria tablets for the duration of our stay in the Iguazu Falls area, but I'm not sure they were necessary. Before the trip, our travel doctor said this was a malarial area, but there were very few mosquitos around and I don't think I had any bites. Locals we spoke to didn't use malaria tablets, but I guess it's no harm taking precautions. It's very hot and humid in Puerto Iguazu (see attached picture) so make sure to bring suncream and a hat, and also it's important to drink lots of water.

The Rio Iguazu receives water from over 30 rivers and travels across the plateau until finally, it dislodges everything at the tri-border of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, becoming the most impressive and overwhelming water-falls in South America.

Personally, I feel it is the most impressive water-fall in the entire world. The water plunges in 275 falls over an edge of 3200m. Just think of the volume of water tumbling down, continuously for tens of thousands of years already and for many more to come.

On the Argentinian side, one walks ON TOP of the walls and feels the MAJESTY much closer to you.

I was moved to tears when I was standing mere metres from the Garganta del Diablo (or Devil’s Throat), the most spectacular part of the falls. My knees felt weak. I just totally lost myself to the power of the falls.

If you are visiting both the Brazilian and Argentinian sides, my suggestion is to do the Brazilian side first for the overview, before visiting the Argentinian side for the power.

You Are Going to Get Soaked!

by Bwana_Brown

Having seen the waterfalls from top to bottom on the Argentinian-side, we decided to up the ante by taking the 'Grand Adventure' thrill boat ride. Large Zodiac boats equipped with twin 200-HP Yamaha engines leave the shore from just below the waterfalls, with all passengers equipped with life-jackets and plastic bags for anything that you would like to still be working at the end of the trip!

After a few high-speed turns in the gorge, the boat roars at full speed toward the foaming bottom of the Devil's Throat, pulling up just short at the last minute as the spray boils around you, making it hard to even keep your eyes open. This is followed by a spin around to the other side of San Martin Island to the almost equally impressive Salto (Waterfall) San Martin. Edging to the side of that channel, you are treated to another soaking as a smaller cataract almost plunges directly into the craft.

Finally, it is off down the river at high-speed where you will land to catch a 4WD truck for a narrated ride through a rain forest trail leading to the Sheraton Hotel. This little experience cost us US$25 each, above and beyond the booked tour - but it was worth it! The greenish (wet suit) guy at the bow of the boat is videoing the passengers so they can produce a CD to sell it to passengers when the boat docks (it is delivered to your hotel a few hours later).

Rafting the Iguazu river

by Frisbeeace

The Iguaçu River rafting descent starts in front of the San Martin Island at the end of the Macucu Safari percours. From here the spectacular downriver trip starts along the rapids and high waves formed by the 1.700 cubic meters of falling water concentrating and passing strongly at a narrow place between the river banks. Rapids class: II or III (depending on river level)

"the mission"

what a spectacular sight of the earths moving energy....this is the opening scene to the famous movie "the mission" which cannot be paralled.....all day i stood in awe and wonder at the fierce rumbling of two grand rivers falling to the earth.what a sight certainly not to be missed, if you are travelling to brazil or argentina this is a must on your 'must see' list.......the most water i have ever seen!here God is present.......i bear witness!this region was long ago populated by the Caingangues Indians, but as history recalls, it was 'discovered' in 1542 by spaniard Alvar Nunea Cabeza de Vaca.Now a bumbling tourist spot, you are bound to meet many great people from all over the world.
