I’ve seen a lot of waterfalls in my time but I must admit that the Iguaçu Falls is one of the most impressive. To fully appreciate the falls you have to see them from both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides. You can also opt for a slightly expensive (but worth it) helicopter flight over the falls to see them from the sky. Of course I had to see them from both land and air and I won’t lie, I was like an excited kid at Christmas time when we went up in the air.
On the Brazilian side you can take the Trilha das Cataratas which is a beautiful trail through rainforest with amazing views of the falls. The path leads you to the Devil’s Throat of the falls where you can walk along a metal boardwalk to see the waterfalls up close. Unfortunately for us it started to rain halfway through our walk and we got absolutely drenched! Of course once we had finished sightseeing the rain cleared up and the sun came out – typical. Still a spectacular site despite the rain though.
On the Argentinian side there are multiple walks you can take through the park that will get you up close to the falls. On this side you can opt to take a boat trip that will take you really up close and personal to the falls aswell! Of course this was an option that stood out to me but prepared to get absolutely drenched!
