panoramic view of Iguazu falls brasilian side
Natural border between Brazil and Argentina, Iguazu falls are unequally divided between the two countries. As a matter of fact, Argentina has the major part of the falls.
Assets of the argetinian side:
  • we are very close to the falls (don't forget waterproof cloth).
  • we can walk to the falls through tropical forest. It is only to reach devil's throat that we need to take a small train which is by the way very pleasant.
  • the impressive point of view on the devil's throat.
  • the possibility to see the falls from the upper or lower circuit.

Assets of the brazilian side:
  • the panoramic view is gorgeous.
  • the interesting perspective of devil's throat fall: easier to snapshot because less spray water.

In addition to the falls, brazilian and argentinian sites shelter remarkable ecosystems with rich vegetation of around 2000 plant species and a striking wildlife like the toco tucanos.
Close to brazilian site is a bird park where we observed these beautiful blue-and-yellow macaw.
