One of the great natural wonders of the world, the Iguaçu Falls (Portuguese: Cataratas do Iguaçu, Spanish: Cataratas del Iguazú, Tupi: Y Ûasu “big water”) are situated near the border of Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina. The area is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Get around Iguazu Falls, Brazil
====================
Both sides of the park are well served with foot trails.

On the Argentine side of the park there’s a small train leaving about every half an hour from near the entrance going all the way to the beginning of the trail to the Garganta del Diablo.

On the Brazilian side, there’s a bus service connecting the falls with other activities. That service runs from the entrance to the end of the park every 10 minutes in both directions.

=====================
The Iguaçu Falls are an awesome sight as tonnes of water throw themselves over cliffs and the mist rises amongst the jungle. They are taller than Niagara Falls, and twice as wide, for which Eleanor Roosevelt is said to have exclaimed on her first sight of the Falls: “Poor Niagara!”

It is well worth spending a day on each side of the falls, especially if you plan to do any of the boat rides or other activities offered.

Don’t just rush past the main viewpoints and leave. It’s important to get a good perspective on the park overall to appreciate this awesome sight.

Whilst the majority of the falls are in Argentina, a better overview is had from the Brazilian side.

===================
Spectacular boat trips can be made under the falls.

Argentine side
=============
Iguazu Jungle Explorer offers trips, including boat rides (recommended) and rides on 4WD trucks through the park (not so interesting – the highlight of the long trip is the same as the short one). To be booked near the entrance or on the circuito inferior before going down to the ferry. If you do one of the boat rides (AR$180 for a short one, AR$380 for a long one which also takes you some way down the river), prepare to get soaked to the skin (you’ll receive a dry bag for your camera).

Brazilian side
===============
Macuco Safari, : offers boat trips up to the base of the Iguaçu Falls in 20 person zodiac boats. Your tour starts at the roadside entrance gate where you board the truck that will take you through the jungle towards the drop-off point. A narrator will describe the fauna that are –Jimknows (talk) 18:39, 1 July 2013 (EDT) along the way. At the end of the ride, you have an easy hike down to the dock where you should put on your raincoat, a life preserver and place your valuables/dry things into plastic bags. The ride up the river to the falls is quite fun as the boats are powered by the two large motors that are needed to navigate the rapids. During the ride, the journey is video captured for your later purchase. The captains know the rapids well which means that every chance they have to dip the boat and soak the passengers is done. The first pause is at a the beginning of the falls near the launch point for the Argentinian boat tours. There is time for photos and then to re-wrap your camera and up the river towards the Devils Throat. You cannot get that close the large falls as it gets exceedingly rocky in the river which prevents them from going all the way to the base of the falls. However, the captain will get you very close to going under the falls whenever he can. One note:you will get wet– a raincoat is not enough.

If you go all the way to the “Las Cateratas” station, you will be offered e.g. wildwater rafting & abseiling activities at better rates. When you arrive shortly before the activities close for the day or they’re just not busy you can easily bargain about the price and get a really good rate!
