Iguazu Falls, the one which comes under UNESCO World Heritage List is a must see if you are into Brazil or Argentina.

It is nearly three times as wide as Niagara Falls and significantly wider still than Victoria Falls. If you have already set your mind to visit this great natural wonder, then I would suggest you witness it from both sides. And it does not take more than 4 days.

Iguazu Falls

To avoid the crowd, you can choose mid-season to visit Iguazu Falls, and that is from July to October and from February to April. The best month to visit the falls is from April, May, September, and October.

To book an online ticket to the falls if you are visiting from Brazil. Get you online booking done to visit the falls from Argentina. If you are not booking online and paying from the entrance, I would suggest keeping the respective currencies.

You can drive yourself to the park and got a parking facility, can also hire a taxi. There is a bus service departing from Puerto Iguazú city to Iguazú Falls National Park every 20 minutes as well.

A waterproof camera is a good idea for the points like the Devil’s Throat. Devil’s Throat is the largest water curtain in the whole system and includes 14 waterfalls. Be ready to walk and soak in the mist.

You can book a helicopter flight over the falls, from the Argentinian side of the Iguazu Falls.

The nearest town on the Brazilian side is Foz do Iguaçu. It is located about 5 miles north of Puerto Iguazú, the Argentinian side, so it is a little further from the national park.

Foz do Iguaçu has a big airport with direct links to Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, etc.
