Iguazu falls attractions (puerto Iguazu)

Translations: es

The Iguazú Falls are a group of waterfalls located on the Iguazú River, on the border between Brazil and Argentina. The sector of Argentina is within the Iguazú National Park, while that of Brazil is located in the Iguazú National Park. They were chosen as one of the natural wonders of the world. They are formed by 275 jumps, 80% of them are on the Argentine side. One of the most amazing jumps is the Devil's Throat, which can be enjoyed in all its majesty. You can get to Devil's Throat by crossing the catwalks. The Iguazu Falls are recognized as the fastest ones.

Cataratas de Iguazú

Iguazú Falls is the main tourist center of the northeast of Argentina, and one of the most important of Argentina and Brazil. In them, the walks are mostly on the Argentine side, although from the Brazilian side you have a panoramic view. The Devil's Throat is accessed through the Tren de las Cataratas, descending at Garganta del Diablo Station. From there, a walk is made along the new footbridge, which meanders between the islands, runs 1100 meters to the large balconies located next to the edge and in front of the Garganta del Diablo. The duration of this trip is 2 hours and the last train departs at 4:30 pm.

Cataratas del Iguazu

If you decide to get to know Cataratas, remember that the ideal is to stay in a hotel or apartment near the center of the city to be able to move around by a local bus. To arrive by public transport from Puerto Iguazú, there is only one bus company that provides the service: "Río Iguazú". The round trip ticket costs 4,5 USD per person. (It can be taken out only and there to buy the return, the same goes out). The first trip from the Hito de las tres Fronteras leaves at 7.30 am, the Hito de las tres Fronteras is a place that is really recommended to visit since you can see the union of three countries, Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, do not hesitate to take a photo. The bus has an approximate frequency of 20 minutes. To return, the last trip from the Park to Puerto Iguazú is at 7:50pm. In the city, it is best to take it in the terminal because it is usually full.

The entrance to the Iguazu park and the parking lot (in case of going in your own vehicle) is paid only in Argentine pesos and in cash (they don't accept credit cards). Prices vary depending on age, nationality, etc. The schedule is from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you want to visit the park twice, which in principle is ideal because the park is very large, with the entry of one day, the next day you pay half. What you have to do is before you go to any box and ask to validate the entry. The next day presenting that validated ticket plus your identity id and they will charge you half.

Recommendation for the Argentine side of cataracts

Go early in the morning because there is a long way to go and it takes several hours. Bring food for the whole day (is usually very expensive) and of course a bottle of water. Go with comfortable clothes and shoes to walk. Bring hat, sunscreen and mosquito repellent. If you want to make the Nautical Adventure Walk take a change to change your clothes or a mesh. At the entrance of the park I asked for a brochure of the park: it shows a map of the place and the different activities that there are to do.


A nice activity to do, if one goes to visit the falls is to know Foz do Iguazu in Brazil and know the falls on that side. In Foz do Iguaçu public transport works in the following way: From any part of the city, you can take a bus to the terminal and then you switch to another bus (with no additional payment). Bus ticket costs around $ R 3.20 to go from one point in the city to any other (although you have to travel the entire city), even if you switch buses.
