All I can say is this was a breathtaking experience. Visited the cataratas brasileiras this place is a MUST visit. The Falls are beautiful. Entrance just into the falls is about R$68 for non Brazilians about R$38 for Brazilians and Even if you have an RNE they don't accept it. Make sure you buy a rain plastic jacket before heading...

Though some years ago, It is so bright in my brain travelling from Rio de Janeiro by car with a friend and end oúp in Foz. Indeed a fantastic journey and some more than fantastic Natural experiences seeing the Iguacu falls and enjoying the sceneries with a friend and my Camera. Full value for money indeed

This is stunning and amazing. The fall is the most beautiful. Brazilian side offers panoramic view which I like more than the Argentine side, which is more sectional.

Iguacu National Park is simply stunning, a true natural wonder. My advice would be to invest a whole day in the Argentinian side, which is far bigger and has the best views. Visiting the Brazilian side will not take more than two hours. Not to miss!

Even more spectacular than the Brazilian side...the boardwalks make it so accessible right to the very edge.

It's a must see place once in a lifetime. The simplest ticket is not so expensive (36 reais = 9 euro) but to go on the additional visitis like the boat or in a bike trail among the forest, you must be a rich person or a foreingner (cuz your money worths more). There's a bus that takes you from... More

I always wanted to visit the park and feeling those waters touching me was a thrill. I never imagined we could get that close to the water. The rainbow through the crossing bridge was a very good scenario to take some pictures.

The Falls were a bucket list item for us so there is no way we weren't going to both sides. Brazil was definitely worth doing, but not as amazing as that Argentine side for us (but certainly still amazing). We stayed at the Sheraton in the Argentina park and had a private driver take us to the Brazilian falls, bird... More

I visited both sides, Argentinian and Brazilian. For the Argentinian side you need around 5/6 hours taking your time for some pictures. I recommend to visit the Garganta del Diablo firstly because when the amount of tourists is bigger than the capacity the close the path and you can access only by train which means to wait a long time....

You have to see this side as well. Not as spectacular as the argentinian side, but very relaxing to walk and enjoy the views. The bus ride is quite long when you enter the park and you have to pay extra for it.
