Iguazu Falls, where over 275 distinct cascades tumble through lush subtropical forest, is one of the most awe-inspiring sights in South America. The falls straddle the border between Argentina and Brazil, and we'll explore the Argentine and Brazilian sides to get up close to the plummeting water.
Discover the falls as you take the walking circuits on the Argentina side
Take a zodiac up the Iguazu river to Devil's Throat Canyon
Take an optional helicopter ride over the falls from Brazil
Today set out for our first glimpse of the falls by exploring the Argentinean side of Iguazu Falls and watch the cascading water from various angles. Begin the day by boarding a small train to Devil's Throat Station, where there's a suspended walkway with spectacular views.
Later explore the two walking circuits, beginning with the upper walk. This is about a quarter-mile long and takes approximately 45 minutes. From here you can see the Two Sisters, Bosseti, Adam and Eve, Bernabe Mendez, Mbiguá and San Martín Falls. The lower circuit has been described as the "most beautiful thousand meter walk in the world." Heading in a clockwise direction you get a very different perspective of the falls; watch out when you get to the middle of the walkway - you might get wet!!
This afternoon we make our way through the jungle in a rugged 4x4 vehicle, traveling the limited-access Yacaratia Trail to nearby Puerto Macuco (minimum age requirement of 12 years). Here we leave the truck behind for an inflatable speedboat, in which we'll navigate four miles (7 kms) along the lower Iguazu River. Bring your swimsuit and be prepared to get wet in the refreshingly cool spray from the falls! Approaching the picturesque falls in Devil's Throat Canyon, we'll brave a mile of rapids before finishing our adventure surrounding San Martin Island. Return with zodiacs to Macuco port and back to the hotel.
Day 3: Brazil Side Touring
Set out from your hotel today to cross over to the Brazil side of the Falls. Set out on a half day guided tour of the falls. From the Brazilian National Park you will enjoy a panoramic view of the falls and set out on an easy walk finishing in the canyon of the Devil’s throat. If your flight leaves later in the day, opt to take an excursion to Macuco Falls or enjoy a helicopter flightseeing tour! Transfer to the airport to continue your travels in Argentina or Brazil.

When to Go
Good to ideal period to travel, and many people choose to visit at this time.
The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
