Discover The Grandeur Of Argentina-Brazil’s Iguazú Falls

Tourists who appreciate the incomparable beauty of water will love the dramatic and majestic Iguazú Falls, situated along the border between Argentina and Brazil. These waterfalls have a width of 2.7 km, and range in height from 197 to 269 feet. They are considered one of the world’s “new seven wonders”, according to the Swiss Foundation. When you plan a holiday around a trip to these stunning waterfalls, you won’t be disappointed, as the views will be incredible. Plus, there will be plenty of other things to see in the area.


Take a Boat Ride up the River

To drink in the beauty of the Iguazú Falls, you should take a boat ride up the river. When you choose a tour from a reputable company, you’ll be well taken care of while you’re out on the water. You’ll be provided with a lifejacket with an appropriate buoyancy rating, which will help to keep you safe as you explore, in the very unlikely event that you do go overboard. An experienced guide will be there to keep an eye on wind and weather conditions and ensure that you are able to safely enjoy this unique nautical experience to the fullest. You’ll probably get wet during your adventure, and you’ll love it because you’ll be close enough to the falls to enjoy spectacular water line views that are magical and provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience.


Explore Beautiful National Parks


On the Argentina side, there is Iguazú National Park, which is approximately a 2 ½-hour flight from Buenos Aires. This national park, which is world-renowned for its subtropical climate, scenic Iguazú River and dense rainforest, was established in the 1930s, in order to protect the Iguazú Falls. On the Brazilian side, you’ll find another gorgeous national park, which is known as Parque Nacional do Iguaçu. Both parks are home to lush plant life, thanks to the moisture emitted by the waterfalls, which makes it easy for plants to grow. The parks are also home to endangered wildlife species.


Spend Time in Puerto Iguazú


This Argentinian border city is located within the Misiones province. Its population is just over 82.000. The city is only 18 km from the Iguazú Falls, so it’s an ideal base for exciting day trips to the falls and to other attractions inside of Iguazú National Park. The city has been developed with the needs of tourists in mind. Fun things to see in Puerto Iguazú include visiting the local bird rehabilitation center, dropping by the Mborore Museum, and visiting the Museum of Images of the Jungle. If you want to see the falls from the Brazilian side, you’ll probably spend time in Foz do Iguaçu, which is also a wonderful town. It’s on the larger side and offers a lot of amenities to tourists, including dinner shows with folk dancing, hot air balloon tours, and a bird park.


A journey to Iguazú Falls will be an unforgettable trip. You’ll see the magic of nature up close and personal. You’ll also love familiarizing yourself with Argentinian and Brazilian culture. Those who are drawn to water will be awestruck by the grandeur of the waterfalls and the beauty of the land surrounding them.
