In a nutshell
Be Sure To Come At Least Once
Mbiqua Falls in the rain
By the time we reached Mbiqua Falls the rain had arrived and photography was challenging. Note the hazy condition. I was really glad that I was using a zoom lens and did not have to swap lenses for different focal lengths. Be prepared. The weather can change rapidly. Other...
Hermanas and Bossetti Falls are enjoyable
As mentioned in other tips, day two we walked the upper and lower circuits trails to see other falls at the park besides Devil's Throat. Hermanas and Bossetti Falls are well worth the walk. Be prepared for sunny or wet weather, although these trails were more protected by...
Don't miss San Martin Falls
Day two we walked the Iguazu Falls trails called Upper and Lower Circuits to see the other falls in the park. My wife went for the ride on the boat that approaches the falls and she described it as a thorough soaking. While she enjoyed it, I, a non-swimmer, also had a great...
Remember to see Mendez Falls
Day two of our visit to Iguazu Falls took us to the circuits to falls other than Devil's Throat. It started in sunshine and became a tropical downpour by the time we reached the tunraround point of our guided walk. A lesson to the wise: take poncho, small pack, water, hat,...
Devil's Throat Falls
Iguazu Falls consists of many falls, but the best known is Devil's Throat which we saw on our first day there. We stayed at the hotel in the park, walked ten minutes to the train, rode a few minutes to the circuit for Devil's Throat, and then spent the afternoon on the...
Hiding and showing the falls, in a game that we are invited to play and do accept with delight, the forest completes the ambiance, and gives dept, color and life to the site.In Brazilian side there´s a circuit that shows the forest; here, I had no time to find out.
Here a powerful stream falling from your feet, there a placid river running slowly in the forest, the Argentine side of the falls is rich in delicious details, impossible to see from the Brazilian side. However, the stronghest images are caught from the opposite Brazilian,...
Of all the waterfalls in the world, and i have seen many of them, Iguazu has to be the best. This is where they shot the movie, The Mission. The falls are 2700 metres long, divided by small islands but the horse shoe shape of the DEVIL'S THROAT is really impressive, as half...
I think that no one sees the falls only from the Argentin side - the big show is at Brazilian side. But it's easy to cross from one country to the other, so, staying in Brazilian Iguacu town, it only took us a couple of hours by bus, to stroll in the Argentin falls and go...
Trails at the Falls
Unlike the Brazilian side of the falls, there is a far more extensive trails system on the Argentine side of the falls. You do not get the panoramic views that the Brazilian side offers, but you are able to get quite close to the falls. One of the trails leads all the way to...
Itaipu Hydroelectric Power Plant
Itaipu is a hydroelectric power plant on the Paraná River, located on the border between Brazil and Paraguay. The name ‘Itaipu’ means ‘singing stones’ in the local Guarani language.It is one of the largest operational hydroelectric power plants in the world. The installed...
Estacion Catarata: Nice refreshing frozen fruit pop
There are a few options located inside the park for some snacks, drinks or even quick meals. After visiting the Garganta del Diablo we were feeling quite hot and wanted a refreshing treat before taking the train to the lower and upper circuits so we stopped in here to see...
Garganta del Diablo: Enjoying a meal with a wonderful view
We were staying at the Sheraton Iguazu Falls and after spending a full morning exploring half of the park we decided to come back to the hotel and enjoy our lunch at their restaurant, Garganta Del Diablo. As we made our way to the restaurant we were asked if we wanted a sit...
Lobby Lounge at the Sheraton Iguazu Falls: Drinks at the Lobby Lounge
After a full day of exploring all the different parts of the park all we wanted was to relax and enjoy a bit of the hotel. We were here for a few nights and wanted the relax with a few drinks. Since we didn't want to leave the hotel, during our two night stay we took full...
From the Brazilian side, you can get on a high speed Zodiac boat and zoom up the river and get very close to the falls. You will get wet!! You can catch a ride on the Nautical Adventure which tends to have crazy drivers who love to get everyone in the boat as wet as possible...
feed the friendly coati that approaches you!!!!
coaties are harmless beautiful animals which wander the paths in iguazu expecting to find generous tourists who ll share with them the crackers or whatever they re eating at the time. don´t be mean!!! and don t be scared either, they are very friendly.
Thieves of Iguazu Falls the Coati
Coatis are called the thieves of Iguazu and for reason. During our visits to the falls there were so many coatis every where we went and they were especially visible around the many snack and quick meal stops located around the park. On our most recent trip to the falls we...
Beware of snakes
I found this sign a bit interseting. Now, I know we are in a "jungle" but this sign caught me totally off guard since I would think that most people would have some sort of common sense when it comes to the creatures of the jungle. There are pleny of signs posted through out...
Sub tropic heat
Iguazu is in the subtropical rain forest. It can be sunny and raining at the same time, and/or within 5 minutes of each other, only to change again. Bring sun protection and walking shoes. What ever you are wearing should be light and breathable, and handle...
Parque Das Aves
If you happen to venture to the Brazilian side of the falls be sure to visit the Parque Das Aves across from the entrance to the Brazilian National Park. What looks like nothing more than a huge tourist trap and complete waste of money turned out to be a very interesting...
