Falls in Argentina worth the reciprocity tax, etc?

Hello, I am looking for info from people who have visited BOTH sides of the Iguacu Falls. As a Canadian, a $125 reciprocity tax is charged to cross the border into Argentina ( plus the other costs...~$200 in total). . Just wondering if anyone who has seen the Brazilian side and then crossed the border thinks the cost justifies the view / experience? Thanks in advance!

Steven D: U.S. citizens have been exempt from paying the reciprocity fee since August 23, 2016.There is no longer any reason for someone from the States to pay this fee.

True, US citizens do not pay the fee, but the question was regarding a Canadian citizen paying the fee. Sorry if my reply was confusing to some.

I am a little confused as to $125 fee? Is that CA $$/

Canadian visitors (tourism or business) must pay a US$78 reciprocity fee online prior to their arrival in Argentina. The fee is payable on the Dirección Nacional de Migraciones website. A printed receipt must be shown to your airline/bus company upon check-in or boarding and submitted to immigration authorities upon arrival.
