Explore the best of Iguazu Falls Adventure
Arrival from Puerto Iguazu Airport Transfer.
A visit to the Argentinean side of Iguazu Falls is a completely different experience than the Brazilian and deserves a whole day's worth of your time. Walk along the man-made platforms and bridges that follow the contours of the river taking you right up next to hundreds of waterfalls covering a 4 kilometer stretch.
Iguazu falls were created approximately 200 thousand years ago by a geological fault where the Iguazu and Parana Rivers come together creating an 80-meter high cascade named "Garganta del Diablo" or Devil's Throat. The falls stretch over 3 kilometers wide making them taller than Niagara Falls in North America and wider than Victoria Falls in Africa. The average flow of water passing over the falls is 1,500 cubic meters per second and depending on the water levels you can observe anywhere from 160 - 260 falls. The intensity of the falls produces a permanent fog, where sunbeams form multiple rainbows of incredible beauty.
Start off by walking down around the Circuito Inferior where several bridges take you right up next to the falls where you can stand and be soaked by the spray in seconds. Take the train to the "Devil's Throat" main falls where a man-made walkway leads you out over the river to experience the once-in-a-lifetime thrill of looking down into the Devil's Throat itself, a 90-meter-high cascade over which 13,000 cubic meters plunge per second.
Taking an optional boat trip (you may purchase this additional activity upon arrival), rafting or hiking in the park is another way to enjoy the day in nature and appreciate the falls from a different perspective.Don't forget to take your camera, rain gear and sunblock. Bring your own snacks and water to avoid paying high prices in the park.
If time allows on your way back to Puerto Iguazu, you may have a chance to stop at the 3 frontiers overlook point where you can see Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil at the convergence of the Iguazu and Parana Rivers. A blue, green and yellow obelisk represents the national colors of all 3 countries. This is also a great place to grab some last minute souvenirs from Iguazu Falls.
Today is an exciting day, featuring a visit to the scenic Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the entire falls. After breakfast you will be picked up at your accommodation in Puerto Iguazu and transferred to the Brazilian side of the falls, crossing the border. Be sure to have your passport and Brazilian visa (if required) on hand in order to facilitate the border crossing procedures. Upon arrival, you will go into the national park where you will have the chance to get close to the Floriano, Deodoro, and Benjamin waterfalls before the walkways lead you to the stunning Santa Maria Falls. Look across the river to see the spectacular view of the Argentine side’s waterfalls that stretch over 1 kilometre in length.
