iguazu falls

Both taller and wider than Niagara, the mighty roar of Iguazu Falls can be heard throughout the dense jungle that blankets the surrounding area

Declared a World Natural Patrimony of Humanity by UNESCO, Iguazu is made up of 275 waterfalls over an area of 2.6km. Portrayed on the big screen Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Robert de Niro’s classic The Mission, they are one of the continent’s most famous sights. Truly one of Latin America’s natural wonders, it's a must on any visit to Argentina. Travel back in time to the region of the first Jesuit missions and witness the raw natural power of Iguazú Falls

things to do

  • The Jesuit ruins of San Ignacio Miní have a fascinating history that stretches back to the Jesuit missions of the 17th Century, surrounded by dense rainforest.
  • Take the Steel walkways that wind through and over the tumbling waters and you can also spend a half day discovering the Falls in Brazil.
  • One part of this enormous waterfall is a single plunge deep into a gorge known as the Garganta del Diablo or “Devil’s Throat”.
  • Splash out (literally!) and experience the up close falls by boat. Even better do by helicopter for breathtaking panoramic vistas.
  • To get a real taste of the jungle you can stay in the Yacutinga lodge in the surrounding lush sub-tropical rainforest. Jaguars, howler monkeys and giant anteaters are some of the wildlife that call the region home, as well as more than 2,000 species of plants

March-May

Autumn in Argentina is still be pleasantly warm ranging from 23-28°C. It can rain at any time in this tropical region, so always come prepared. The water levels will be at their highest during the hot, rainy season between November and March.

September-November

Similar to spring, autumn is a good time to go if you want to avoid the most extreme weather. Temperatures will be starting to rise after the cooler dry season, but the intense humidity of the wet season hasn’t quite set in yet.
