It is amazing that a town the size of Puerto iguazu has grown up as the only reason it exists is because of the falls nearby. This has provided employment for so many people that the town is there to service that function alone. As a town there isn't much to recommend it but it does have a couple of... More

First we visited the Brazilian side of the falls and than crossed the border which was quite a simple action and visited the Argentinian side of the falls. The vieu from the Argentinian side is much more reinvigorating and the whole park and the trails is well orgenized.

The town is not large, it has a good bus service to get you to the falls and back. There is also a good viewpoint to see where Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina meet. There is a variety of accommodation choices here too.

This is a littler bit rustic town. Beside the Water Fall, there is not a lot much to do, although it does have comfortable hotel and good restaurants. With one or two full days is enough. The weather is very hot and humid, so be ready for it.

We read lots of reviews before going and didn't see much about young children so we were quite hesitant to bring our three-month-old and two-year-old. Everything actually worked out perfectly if you go on the two upper trails you can bring a stroller and there's actually plenty of room to navigate the trail. It's all metal grates making it much...

Puerto Iguazu is a small tourist town that border Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. It's a nice town, people are friendly and helpful. It's nice if you want to get out of the... More

Puerto Iguazu Argentina is the less affluent, more rustic sibling to Foz Iguassu in Brazil. Good for a budget traveller with a number of in town hostels and hotels and buffet restaurants. There are some white tablecloth restaurants (parilla) as well as sandwich shops. Just a LOT more relaxed and casual than Foz.

A visit to Iguazu Falls is a fantastic experience full of amazing sights and sound curtesy of Mother Nature.
