Where is it? Iguazu Falls is located on the border between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. The waterfalls should be considered truly both Brazilian and Argentine sides of the River. The best panoramic view of the falls is provided by the Brazilian side, where you can also go on a helicopter tour of the falls. However, most waterfalls are found in Argentina, then to detailed views and more opportunities to experience the local flora and fauna at close range, go to the side of Argentina. The Argentina has the best vantage points, as well as the best view of Garganta del Diablo, the largest and most impressive fall.
Because it is special? This UNESCO World Heritage site, Foz de Iguacu (Iguazu Falls), is one of the most visited destinations in Argentina, for good reason. Higher than Niagara Falls, and four times larger, 275 separate race falls 250 feet down on basalt rock. The name derives from the word Iguazu Guarani meaning “big water”.

Best time to go? There is no “best time” to visit the falls. Depending on your preferences, we recommend that you visit during the rainy season (December to February), when Igauzu Falls is more powerful. However, you may experience cold temperatures or trails closed due to damage from rain. During the dry season (April to July) are more likely to have beautiful, warm weather, but the thin in strength. If you have terrible luck, Iguazu Falls can be completely dry, which occurs only for a week or so every few decades. For a visit to Iguazu Falls compromise during March, August or September.
